Magic number down to 2.

Jays 3 left, Mariners 4. Some breathing room. Just need 2/7 outcomes

Tigers are 9-2 in last 11 hopefully they take one at least in their four game series.

So good news we don't have to play at the Trop. It's down to Seattle at home or road or Tampa at home

A shout out to all the posters that said he wasn't a major leaguer. Now that he's (finally) getting regular playing time, he is showing just how much of a major leaguer he actually is.

I've been wondering something the last few days. Ross Stripling is one of the Blue Jays' biggest success stories this year, transitioning from a relief pitcher to a dependable starter. Is there anyone else in the Blue Jays bullpen who could do something similar next year? Off the top of my head I can think of occasions where Pop, Richards, Phelps, Bass, Garcia all pitched multiple innings in a game. Cimber leads the league in appearances but i cant recall a time where he threw more than 1 inning. Never mind Kikuchi as his situation is different. A lot of the multi inning appearances were in low leverage situations, but some were situations like today where the game was on the line and multiple innings were needed. And of course the bullpen games. Romano has thrown a few 4 and 5 out saves.

I guess I'm also wondering what qualities would identify a relief pitcher as a candidate to become a starter?

And if there is no one in the bullpen who is able to make the jump, what route do the Blue Jays go for the rotation next year? Find another free agent such as Gausman? Trade one of the catchers for a starter?

The obvious quality is the ability to throw their pitches fairly accurately over multiple innings vs. 1 or 2. For sure the team's analytics team has a solid view of these metrics and who is trending well to potentially be a candidate.

Used to be that a starter needed at least 3 and often 4 pitches they could throw for strikes. These days teams will use a guy with Two good pitches and hope he can get thru the order two times. Typically you want younger guys who have been stretched out a bit to try as starters. It's not likely that a veteran bullpen guy is going to be stretched out to go more than two innings.

Nate Pearson would still be a bit of a Wild card I guess as a guy who was going to be a starter.

The fact that three guys on the Jay's have thrown more than 160 innings with Ryu getting injured and that Stripling is st over 130 puts the Jay's as getting a lot more innings from starters than other teams. The Astros are like the only AL team to have 4 guys go over 140. The Yankees only have 3 who went over 130.

I'm going to say it's a pretty safe bet that the Jays will win at least one game and the M's will lose at least one.

The big guy had some struggles in August but bounced back big time in September. It's so rare to get 200 innings in a season from anyone let alone a second year guy in his age 24 season these days.

As a comparison, thru his age 24 season Roy Halladay had 336.1 innings pitched and a 18-17 record in 49 starts and 74 total appearances over parts of 4 seasons. Thru that time he had a 4.87 ERA and 235/148 k/bb ratio. It wasn't till his age 25 season that Halladay broke out and started dominating.

Manoah...at this time has a 25-9 record with a 2.60 ERA in 308.1 innings and all 51 appearances being starts. He has a 307/91 k/bb ratio.

Hard not to get excited about this guy when you see how he compares to a legend like Halladay at the same age. He won't throw the innings that Doc did, but he's in some really elite company for what he's done at this age.

Rain in the forecast all night tonight. The same on Tuesday. Are they going squeeze the Jays and make them play a double header Wednesday and then another game on Thursday before playoffs on Friday? Or get a triple header in on Wednesday?

If all three games can't be played, there's no way that the Mariners can catch the Jays in the standings by win percentage if my math is right.
