The Blue Jays control their destiny with 30 games to play

On September 2 of last year, the Blue Jays sat on the sidelines of the playoff discussion. With 30 games to play, they were five games behind a wild-card spot, with the A’s, Mariners and Red Sox between them and October.

We all know how that story ended. A 21-9 record down the stretch put them ahead of both AL West teams and as many as 91 wins, but it wasn’t good enough. A short win.

This year, the exact teams and standings are different, but the final chase remains the same. With 30 games remaining, the Blue Jays will decide their fate.
