Toronto simply doesn't have enough pitching to beat out the Yankees in the AL East/

the balanced schedule might help them, as they'll play fewer games against the Yankees and Rays, two teams with rotations superior to that of Toronto. but it will allow them to remain close, not to surpass

of course, it cuts both ways, prof


but, seems to me, that it slightly favors the second and third best teams to play fewer games against the best


less of a differential in match-ups for the best

I have no dog in that hunt, apart from living in the Fort Worth area for many years. I think the lightning they'd need to capture would be keeping DeGrom on the hill every fourth or fifth game. I have no confidence that will happen, though.

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

"Scattering The Ashes has all the feels. Paul Russell Semendinger's debut novel taps into every emotion. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll reexamine those relationships that give your life meaning." — Don Burke, writer at The New York Post

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
