Noviembre, 2016.- Despite the second consecutive trip to the ALCS the Blue Jays once again failed to get past it on route to the World Series, this time against the Cleveland Indians. What was a struggling year already and a September that was terrifying they managed to clinch the wild card and sweep the Texas Rangers. In the best of 7 series in the ALCS Cleveland dominated and took the series in the 5th game dominating the mound with their pitching silencing the bats of Encarnacion and Bautista and a stellar pitching order that would intimidate any club in the MLB. Cleveland’s pitching all around was top notch and the Jays just couldn’t figure them out, their bats went silent.
With the World Series starting on Tuesday October 25 another season ends for the Jays and the new one has already begun to take shape, well at least in terms of looking forward to the new roster for the 2017 season. Two big questions looming for the Blue Jay fans and owners are the free agency of Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista. Will the franchise agree to offer what these players are looking for, we all know that the fans and the franchise is eager to win another world series and best at least the ALCS title.
If anything can describe this past season for the Blue Jays it would have to be the wild card game against the Orioles, started out good, wining on top by a run and falling behind losing their lead towards the end, having to go that extra and come back to win the game(5-2). They will open the 2017 season on the road in Baltimore with the Orioles on Monday April 3 2017 and we can bet that Jays fans are already looking forward to a brand new season and attendance should be highs as expected since the Blue Jays led the AL in attendance during the 2016 season. Regardless if the team is different or the same one thing is for sure the fans in Toronto and across Canada are eager to get past the ALCS and make another appearance in the World Series.
