Sometimes when a talent laced team is struggling in Major League Baseball, it only takes one walk-off homer to turn the entire season around. Hitting is contagious as they say, and in those instances one big hit flips the switch for the whole team. The Toronto Blue Jays are not seeing that happen to their rough start to the season. That isn’t to say the season isn’t turning in their favor however.
Jose Reyes was burning it up and then was injured severely. That slowed the season turning process for the Jays. Recently things have been better for R.A. Dickey who finally pitched six shutout innings in his last outing. Unfortunately he had to leave with back spasms. It seems like every time they take three steps forward they take two backwards. The good news in that scenario is that they are making progress. It is just slow progress.
Their last ten have seen the Blue Jays play .500 ball and it has looked about that good. They aren’t losing a lot of tough luck games or anything. When they lose, they generally lose pretty straight up. Still, there are signs that they are pulling together and getting things moving in the right direction. Dickey doing well along with a few other surprises will help them continue the trend, or it should. Hopefully the Blue Jays can continue playing better ball slowly and not see anyone else go down with a serious injury.
