We’re starting to get to the pointy end of the MLB season, and it’s getting tight at the top of most of the six divisions across the majors.
But even for a team like the Chicago Cubs, with a 12 game lead in their National League Central division, there is plenty to worry about come playoffs time.
No team in the league is infallible, and with most divisions currently being decided by an average of less than 6 games, no team looks like shoo-in for the World Series just yet.
Toronto Blue Jays: Bullpen reliability
The Toronto Blue Jays can out slug any team in the majors, American or National league, and with a hitter as big as Jose Bautista to come back into the lineup, they only get more formidable.
Far from being bad, it is still the reliability of the Blue Jays’ bullpen that has Canadians holding their breath on a return to AL Championship Series.
In ERA, the Jays’ pitching staff ranks #4 in the majors, but the ‘pen itself only comes in at 15 out of 30 teams. For a batting lineup as talented as this, it would be a shame if they were let down by a leaky bullpen when it matters. However, that may be the case come October.
