The Future is Ready,Home Run Streak To 15

On Sunday afternoon the Blue Jays did something this city has been waiting for since the beginning of the season.Blue Jays GM Alex Anthopoulos called up RHP Kyle Drabek from AA New Hampshire. Drabek was the number 1 prospect in the Roy Halladay trade and was named Eastern League Pitcher of the year. Drabek was 14-6 with a 2.94 era as he led the Fisher Cats to the playoffs. Drabek also through a no-hitter this year in AA.

Just a few minutes ago Edwin Encarnacion hit a home run to extend the Blue Jays home run streak to 15 straight games. That is the best active streak in the MLB now and better then the 13 game they had earlier this season,which was the Jays previous best.

Bill James invented a formula to calculate how many wins a team will have that season.Using that formula the Blue Jays should have 73 wins as of last night,compared to the 73 they did have last night. At the end of the season if the Jays score and let in the same amount of runs as they are right now they should have 83 wins at seasons end.

Don`t forget to vote for Vernon Wells as the 5 tool player,and for the Roberto Clemente award.Also vote for the late Tom Cheek to win the Ford C. Frick award.
