As I have said before, predicting is just a fancy way of taking a guess. With that in mind…

TRIUMPH shall fall upon the (club)houses of the Minnesota Twins and Arizona Diamondbacks!

3 Gentle Suggestions About Tonight’s Wild Card Match

October 4, 2016

Happy Wild Card Tuesday! Apparently, it’s also appropriate to say…Happy “Almost everyone is pissed that Gibby chose Stro” Day! 

It’s fitting that during the 40th anniversary season, the Blue Jays participate in a historical first for the team. They’ve never held the title of Wild Card Winner, let alone compete for it in a do-or-die playoff match. 

So as first pitch approaches, here are three gentle suggestions to consider.

1) One of the best aspects about the playoffs is that everything is reset. Right now, the Jays and Orioles are on an even playing field. So forget everything that has happened up to this point. It’s winner-take-all and that means anything can happen. 

2) The worst thing the Jays can do is focus on the ALDS before earning the right to reach that level. Same goes for the fans. Tonight is about winning one game and one game only. Put all of your energy and interest into this evening’s match and deal with the future…in the future. 

3) Savour the moment! Far too many Blue Jay fans fixate only on the negative. There’s so much more to baseball than just wins and losses. It’s the playoffs and it’s exciting! Don’t worry about anything else and focus on the drama and the possible reward. In other words, just enjoy the game.

Brendan Panikkar of BaseballHotCorner.com discusses the legacy of the late Miami Marlins pitcher, as well as the Blue Jays’ march towards the postseason.
