Because it's 17 games in 17 days to wrap up this very weird season.

The Jays three best hitters by OPS+ (if we leave out, yes, Derek Fisher, on grounds of too small a sample) are all on the IL although young Bo Bichette's return does seem imminent. This does not seem to have discouraged them unduly. Someone else always seems to get hot and pick up the slack - for a while it was Grichuk, lately it's been Gurriel, and Biggio has been steady and productive all along. No less than nine relief pitchers have been pitching very well indeed, and I promise that's a sentence I've never written before and neither have you.

Next up: Jacob deGrom. Bring it on.
