Death, taxes, and the Toronto Blue Jays making the Texas Rangers look like a bunch of chumps. This started all the way back in 2015, carried into 2016, and, hopefully, never ends.
The Rangers rolled into town today to kick off a three-game series in Toronto. Given that the two teams met for the first time this season all the way back in early May, this is Texas’ first first-hand look at the new generation of Blue Jays.
Did they enjoy it? *Narrator voice* They did not.

Here’s what went down…
- Bo Bichette went four-for-six with two doubles. He set a record in the process.
- Cavan Biggio went two-for-six with a couple of runs driven in.
- Vlad Jr. went two-for-four.
- Justin Smoak hit a two-run homer.
- Randal Grichuk hit a solo homer, a double, and drove in four.
- Teoscar Hernandez doubled.
- Derek Fisher walked twice and had a single.
- Brandon Drury hit a grand slam.
- Danny Jansen had two hits and then he homered off of a position player.
- All told, the Jays pounded Texas by a score of 19-4.
I’m thrilled to see the Baby Blue Jays carrying the torch on such an important, time-honoured, cultural tradition in Canada, which is kicking the shit out of the Texas Rangers. The kids are making Jose Bautista proud.
