As of 6:00 pm Wednesday, the Jays were exactly 2/3 of the way through their season.
Currently, they’re on pace to win 87 games. .600 ball the rest of the season gets the Jays to 90 wins. Which win total is more likely?
The Blue Jays have 28 home games left, and 26 road games. For the season, the Jays have played .566 ball at home, and .509 on the road. Slight advantage to the Jays there.
Yankees: 7 games (3 home, 4 road) .519 winning percentage
White Sox: 3 games (3 road) .486 winning percentage
Cubs: 3 games (3 home) .419 winning percentage
That’s an overall winning percentage of .499 for the opponents in the Jays' remaining games. To this point, Jay opponents have had a .508 winning percentage. Add in the fact that the Jays play 6 of their 9 games with
Baltimore (and 6 of 9 with
) at home,
and the schedule starts to look favourable. And that’s a good thing,
because it’s also looking more and more like it’ll take 90 wins to be assured
of a playoff berth. Tampa
