The Toronto Blue Jays aren't where they want to be right now. Prior to the season, there were high hopes that Toronto could compete for the A.L. East pennant, or potentially a wild-card position.
It's early August, and the Jays are sitting dead last in their division, 10.5 games back of the leading Yankees, five games back in the wild card and playing sub .500 baseball.
For Jays fans, it's difficult to see a bright spot besides what will occur in 2013 and beyond, regardless of success stories such as the 2007 Colorado Rockies, who won 21 of 22 games in September.
Or more recently, the 2011 St. Louis Cardinals, who erased a 10.5-game deficit (ironic?), going 23-9 in their last 32 games.
I'm not going to sit here and tell you Toronto is the new Colorado or St. Louis, because they aren't. Or that they're going to win every game in September, because they won't.
The reality is Toronto's chances are beyond slim. Mix in their string of constant injuries and their chances turn into a size 0.
What I will tell you in this article is what Toronto should be able to do for the remainder of the season in every series left in 2012.
Furthermore, I'll leave it up to you to decide whether they still have a shot or not.
