Make that 6 in a row

With today’s narrow 4-3 over the Chicago White Sox, the Toronto Blue Jays made franchise history by winning their first 6 series to start the season. With some timely hitting by Scott Rolen in the top of the 8th inning, Roy Halladay pitched just long enough to pick up his 4th win of the season. Once again the wall of defense was on its game, as was the bullpen.

The Jays continue to dominate against AL Central teams, compiling a 10-4 record against them. This should bode well for Toronto as they head into Kansas City for a 4-game series.

While the Blue Jays sit perched atop the AL East for the 3rd straight week, the Boston Red Sox have put together a nice little 10 game winning streak to narrow the gap to a single game between the Sox and the Jays. The unfortunate thing about not having any divisional matchups against the Red Sox, Yankees or Rays this early on is that it’s very tough to gain any real ground on them.


But for the time being, I could get used to this winning 2 out of 3 games business. Congratulations boys, let’s keep the ball rolling!

    I’m so scared of the Boston Red Sox

    10 straight wins

    At least we have a streak of our own.

    The Red Sox have 3 more divisional series before they roll into Toronto on May 19th.

    Hey, the Jays won 10 straight last year. It’s been done, I don’t know why the Red Sox are acting like they’re the first team to accomplish that. The 6 game series streak to start the season is much more impressive in my mind.
