Blue Jays update

The Blue Jays last week overtook the Boston Red Sox for second place in the American League East to make a belated push for the wild card. However, their 28-26 start and a losing road record will almost certainly prevent them from leaping over either the Oakland A's or Seattle Mariners and the Cleveland Indians. Having won five of eight and 10 of 16, the Blue Jays are eight games over .500, two games below their season high. The Blue Jays have hit a club-record 237 home runs, 16 more than their previous record set in 1998. After five horrendous months, the starting rotation has righted itself, compiling a sub-4.00 September ERA compared to 5.27 for the sesson. The Jays are never a welcome sight for the Orioles, who managed to win three of four in their previous series at Camden Yards this season and lead the overall series 5-4. The Jays still hold a 22-11 edge over the Orioles since 1997. By winning this series, the Orioles can take their first season series from Toronto since 1996. MVP candidate Carlos Delgado's chances for a Triple Crown have faded because of a recent run of 17 homer-less games. He also went a week without an RBI but still holds the franchise season record (137).
