On the Money
The Toronto Blue Jays won back to back World Series in the early 90's but have not been back to the postseason since. They are the only team in MLB not to have made the playoffs in the Wild Card era. Hoping to change that the Jays were one of the most active teams at the trade deadline, landing All-Star Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki to bolster what already was the best line up in baseball and former Cy Young winner David Price to provide a much needed ace to a struggling pitching staff. On Monday Price made his Toronto debut in front of a packed house at Rogers Centre. David Price allowed an early homer to Torii Hunter, but quickly settled down, pitching eight innings, allowing three hits and striking out 11 batters as the Blue Jays beat the Minnesota Twins 5-1. With the win the Jays improved to 55-52 and into a three way tie for the second Wild Card spot in the American League.
