How far will the Jays go ?!

TORONTO - Simply put, the Toronto Blue Jays are firing on all cylinders right now. 

Hitting, defense and pitching are all working.

The fact that they had to scratch and claw their way into the playoffs looks like it did them a huge favor.

Last year, they led all of MLB with their offence and..I think..were a little over confident about their ability to get to the World Series.

A little humility is a good thing sometimes.

We'll see how far they go !!
