Blue Jays Smoke Boston Again - Reviewing the Season Series Against the AL Rivals

Boston and Toronto were two teams that were fighting for the last wildcard position last year. Now they are exactly opposite of each other. Boston got off to a hot start to the season before falling completely out of it after the All-Star break. On the other hand, Toronto, on the other hand, started the season off slow, but has gotten better throughout the season. So far, Toronto has had Boston's number this season. The teams have met 18 times so far. This season, Toronto has a 15-3 record against the Sox while outscoring their rivals 119-46. The Boston Red Sox What has happened to the Boston Red Sox?

AL East Notes: Bogaerts Batting Average, Yankees Win Crucial Series, Bichette POTW, Yu Chang to Boston
