Now would be the point where the Toronto Blue Jays should turn things around.
It would be a perfect absolute minimum on a season that could surpass all odds; a team that losses 5-4 on a grand slam and other hits that took back a 4-0 lead, then proceeds to out score and out pitch every opponent they face.
That probably won't happen, but it would be perfect. Today, against the Oakland Athletics, the Blue Jays will attempt to reach one game below .500 again. With a loss today, Toronto will be the lowest below .500 it's been this season.
Back and forth between the triple-A Buffalo Bisons and the major league team, Joe Biagini has made three appearances in the majors this season, all of which have been starts. He hasn't done well, and most recently against the Boston Red Sox, he gave up four runs in 4.2 innings. Before that, he gave up six in 4.1.
Complete with the Oakland classic handlebar mustache, Daniel Mengden is starting for the Athletics today. He'll be making his 10th start of the season. He hasn't allowed more than two runs in an outing since April, and only gave up more than four runs in a start in his first of the season. In half of his starts, he's allowed two runs or less.
