This Weekend in Pictures

They say that a picture is worth a thousands words – I beg to differ. Looking at the collage above from this past weekend’s series at Fenway against the Red Sox, my feelings can be expressed in just three words: FML.

I hate to be a Debbie Downer, but this is definitely the low point in the season for the Toronto Blue Jays. Going from 13 games above .500 to 12 games below .500 is a slippery slope that the Jays have been falling down ever since mid-May. Their combined 17-37 record against division rivals is enough evidence to show that they just cannot get it done against teams in the American League East.

Maybe this road trip deep in the heart of Texas is what they need to snap out of it.


Ian has been writing about the Toronto Blue Jays since 2007. He enjoyed the tail-end of the Roy Halladay era and vividly remembers the Alex Rodriguez "mine" incident. He'll also retell the story of Game 5 of the 2015 ALDS to his kids for the next 20 years.

    It gets harder to believe everyday that April/May ever happened. Seems like some kind of dream now…

    "Deep in the heart of Texas" never gets old.

    Mattt, and to think that earlier this year I was actually considering using some of my vacation time for when the Blue Jays made the playoffs. A boy can still dream, though.

    eyeB, I'm all about the obvious cliches. The purists hate them but they appeal to the masses.

    woodpeck, it all seems like it was just a dream doesn't it? Oh well, at least they were in 1st place for a month!

    I love it, Ian. I'm going to be saying it a lot over the next few days.
