Are the Blue Jays the beasts of the AL East?

The Jays have been up and down this year but are now riding a six-game win streak which has brought them back to within one game of .500 – although they are still four games back of the Yankees.

However, the Jays are now +53 in run differential.  This, and the fact that they have a sorry 4-12 record in one-run games suggests that they could have had a much better record at this point.  The run differential suggests it could be about 34-25 instead of 29-30.

Their rating has also been climbing recently.  Who knows?  Maybe they’re putting it together … finally.
