As the trade deadline looms large, the Toronto Blue Jays are on the cusp of a wildcard position with a fleeting chance of winning the AL East. This means that the Jays will be looking to add MLB players to their roster and as they have a surplus of prospects, so much so that Fangraphs…
Sometimes baseball sucks. Especially when your favourite team loses by a score of 13-4. Personally, what I love about baseball is that there are 162 games, meaning that one loss, no matter the score, only counts as one loss.
