Blue Jays Series Recap – Jays Split With White Sox

The Toronto Blue Jays split a four game series with the Chicago White Sox at home.  They did it without Jose Bautista and in game four of the series lost R.A. Dickey to a neck/upper back ailment.  Our run differential is now a terrible -27 runs, one of the worst marks in the majors.

The starting pitchers looked better overall and given the current composition of the Jays batting line-up  the pitching performances will have to be sharp if the Jays hope to win many games going forward.

A new fan favourite might have emerged as Wes noted:

Encouragingly, Munenori Kawasaki continues to be more than they bargained for when they signed him in March. He models himself on Ichiro (successfully in many ways), and has personality dripping from every pore. He battles in almost every at bat and his effervescence is a welcome change to the dugout. Defense is his strength and he’s been rock-steady at short.

CURRENT RECORD: 7-9 (-27 run differential)

Here are the quick recaps and boxscores:

Game 1 – Blue Jays 4, White Sox 3 – Buehrle gets win, Arencibia hits homerun.

Game 2 – White Sox 4, Blue Jays 3 – Josh Johnson tosses a gem, White Sox rally.

Game 3 – White Sox 7, Blue Jays 0 – Blue jays spanked.

Game 4 – Blue Jays 3, White Sox 1 – RA Dickey brilliant over 6 IPs prior to leaving with injury.

UP NEXT: The Blue Jays host the New York Yankees (8-5, +16 run differential) for a three game weekend set at the Rogers Centre.

    It’s truly very complex in this active life to listen news on Television, so I just use web for
    that purpose, and get the most up-to-date information.

    Jays should be like a 2-win team with that run diff.

      Except that the run differential is skewed heavily by losing 7-0 to CHI, 13-0 to BOS and 11-1 to DET. The differential in those three games alone is -30, meaning the differential in the rest of the games is -4 after two losses to NY. One game under for the -4, then those blowouts makes it four games below .500. Presto, call ’em 7-11.
