The dog days are here. The 64 win Blue Jays take on the 59 win Tigers in a battle for ....anything? It would normally be a series for the kids but the Jays really don't have many kids on the roster. There is Richard Urena, Teoscar Hernandez and a few arms in the pen, Carlos Ramirez, Chris Rowley and Luis Santos. Then there is Marcus Stroman taking his bruised elbow to the mound tonight, hoping for no line drives through the mound.

The most notable thing about the weekend is that Saturdays game is at 4pm. I don't recall why, it could be TV related or an experiment by the Jays but it is different. Is there anything else to pay attention to this weekend?

It is tough to win a double header at the best of times but Dunedin had to win one to win the Co-Championship of the FSL. They did indeed sweep the doubleheader for their first championship in team history. In game one Vlad Jr and Cavaan Biggio carried the load. In game two Bo and Vladdy were hitless but Connor Panas hit two home runs. The pitching was excellent in both games.

Vancouver won game one of their series. Again pitching dominated with each team having just six hits. Nate Pearson dominated early before fading a little in the fourth. The C's used three other pitchers to get home. The game was scoreless until the eighth when Logan Warmoth hit a two run home run, that was the difference in a 2-1 game.

The Jays played a decent series in Baltimore marred by a couple of extra innings losses. at this stage the Jays are playing out the string but the Red Sox are in the playoffs so the Jays trot out their usual lineup although many fans would like to see more of the kids. The Jays play Detroit at the weekend so that should be a kid friendly series.

The Jays head into Baltimore for a four game set. The team is playing uninspired ball at the moment but playing the Orioles often brings out the best in the Jays. Can they win, or at least split, the series?

With the season almost over I thought I would review the season from the affiliates perspective. On the field we discover that Nate Pearson is human. Ridge Smith hit a grand slam for Lansing. Kevin Smith and Lourdes Gurriel also had important hits. Teoscar Hernandez hit another home run.

There is an interesting competition between Bo Bichette and Vlad Guerrero as to who will end with the best batting average in high A. Bichette is hitting .338 and Vlad .342 with just a few games left.
