The Toronto Blue Jays are back in the playoffs for the first time since winning the World Series in 1993, thanks to their hard-swinging bats and the boldness to go all out for the highly-sought services of star lefty David Price during the MLB Trade Deadline. But now, the celebrations about reaching the playoffs are over, and the only thing that matters in the MLB betting lines is how the Jays will represent the Toronto diehards in the postseason games, starting with the ALDS Divisional Series against the Texas Rangers.Fortunately or unfortunately, Price started Thursday’s game and his team lost 5-3, meaning the Jays will be looking up to Marcus Stroman to right the ship against Rangers’ ace deadline acquisition in Cole Hamels. Given that the Rangers have a questionable pitching staff (read that the worst pitching staff among all the playoff teams), the presence of Hamels and against a pitcher not named Price, means that this game offers Texas a big chance to deliver a second successive upset over their hosts. Will the left-handed Hamels and the Rangers seize the opportunity, or will the Blue Jays simply out-slug their way to a victory, as they’ve often done against southpaws? Read on below for a comprehensive breakdown of this crucial clash.
