The Jays head out on the final road trip of the season, having kept their unspoken commitment to losing more than 90 games for the first time in more than 20 years. As a very, very great man once said, "it's too late to stop now."

The Yankees haven't quite clinched the division - technically, they haven't even clinched a post-season berth - but we're in Magic Number territory and there's a pretty good chance they'll make all these things official this weekend.

The Jays make a rare visit to Hollywood and hope to steal a win against the rampaging Dodgers. Tinseltown's finest are 82-44 and are on pace for a 105 win season. They lead the division by 18 games. It's a tough assignment for the baby faced Jays but they haven't been intimidated much recently. Much will depend on Vladdy's availability and now would be a good time for all the pretenders, like Teoscar, Fisher, Drury and McKinney to go an a long tear to end the season on a high note.

The new and dis-improved Jays head into Baltimore for another battle of the de-fledged birds. The newest Jay, and Ross Atkins fanboy, Derek Fisher will be on hand as will Trent Thornton and Jason Adam. Adam, who was in the majors with kansas City last season, has pitched in eight games for Buffalo.

Since beating up the Orioles right after the all-star break, the Rays have lost three straight series versus the Yankees, Red Sox and White Sox. The Rays looked like they were headed for a wild card spot but now find themselves on the outside. The Rays have lost Kevin Kiermaier, Blake Snell and Yandy Diaz over the last week. The Jays will not miss facing Snell, and Kiermaier always seems to play well against the Jays. The Jays come off an off day and will navigate "maximum rumour weekend" (tm).
