What a difference two weeks can make.
Just two weeks ago, the Toronto Blue Jays were on the outside looking in for a playoff spot; seven games back of the Yankees for first place in the American League East and three games back of a Wild Card spot.
As of today, the Blue Jays have now trimmed the gap to only 1.5 games back of the Yankees and the Jays now occupy the first Wild Card spot by a half game over the Los Angeles Angels.
After the jump, check out the GIF which shows just how far the Blue Jays have rocketed up the standings in the past two weeks.

In this regard, it’s remarkable to see just how fast the Blue Jays have closed the gap on their competition; not only on the Wild Card teams, but the Yankees as well.
