One thing that the Toronto Blue Jays have shown this season is that they are consistently inconsistent. On occasion they have looked like a team equipped to raise their play to a new level—only to follow it up with disappointing stretches against teams they should beat (teams worse than .500) or fall short against teams they are competing with for a playoff spot.
They also haven’t been able to get on a roll. As of May 23, they have gone on five winning streaks of two or more games followed by losing streaks of two or more games.
They began their season alternating wins and losses two at a time—splitting their first 12 games. They then swept the Kansas City Royals (April 20-24) but then lost their next four—bringing them back to .500 (10-10) after 20 games.
