Jays win 5th series in a row; 21 games over .500 under Cito

After disposing of the Texas Rangers (6-9) by a count of 5-2, the high flying Toronto Blue Jays (12-5) are the first team in the major leagues to 12 victories.

The win marked the fifth straight series the Blue Jays have won, although its curious to note they still have yet to sweep any opponents thus far. What's even more remarkable is the fact the team hasn't lost back to back contests all year.

Taking into consideration last years record under Manager Cito Gaston (51-37), and the hot start this year, Toronto is an astounding 21 games above .500 under the man who led them to back to back World Series titles in the early nineties.! There should be no doubt about whether this team is for real and capable of putting a legitimate scare in the beasts from the A.L. East.

Well watching the way the Blue Jays rattled the White Sox tonight it proves that even legitimate teams are playing scared with the Jays. The amount of errors in the game just made me feel like the Sox were intimidated by the Jays presence. Even Rios and Wells who've been dropping the ball are starting to hit the ball the way they should. Look out AL, this years Rays are coming!
