At this point, the Toronto Blue Jays are playing exactly how their record says: Average

The Jays are treading water at the moment at just a game over .500 (40-39) and 5-5 in their last 10 games.  

The good (and somewhat surprising) news is that their not really losing any distance in the AL East. Sure the Yankees are running away with the division, but I don't think anyone really expected Toronto to win the division anyway. Baltimore and Tampa are stifling right now and Boston is still close. All-in-all the Blue Jays find themselves only two wins behind the second-place Orioles.   

Chances were lost in their four-game split with the Los Angeles Angels. It felt like the series was theirs for the taking. But again, bad pitching was their undoing.

Toronto will head into the Kansas City Royals series feeling like they can, and should, win it. Here are some things to keep an eye on in this four game set.
