Will the Jays ever sweep a series?..

Postby bdrotoronto » Thu Jun 01, 2006 10:01 am

They are now 0-8 this year in the closing game of a series they have an opportunity to sweep. :-o How does that happen?!?..

I think this has actually been an issue with this team for several years, going back to the Buck Martinez days, when the manager brilliantly pointed out if you won 2 games in every 3 game series you'd be pretty good. Sadly it's not so brilliant in cases where you've already won the first 2.. :-?

Actually, considering they haven't swept anyone yet, their record is pretty amazing..

August 25, 26 and 27 the KC Royals are in town for a weekend series. The Jays have a day off before the series starts but the Royals play the night before in KC. We'll be in the playoff hunt and the Royals will be polishing golf clubs. There's a sweep for us.

Ahh, KC has always played decent against us. Hopefully we'll beat them though.

dang, things were looking good for a while today too. :-/

maybe that series against the nationals at the end of the month is a series they can try to sweep. anything less than a home series against a totally craptacular team seems too much to ask right now.. (and it's not like they've gotten it done in those situations either)
