The Blue Jays are good? Who knew?

Our New York Yankees are in Toronto tonight to face the surprisingly un-terrible (yes, I know I'm taking liberties with the English language) Toronto Blue Jays.

The Jays are 31-24, just 3.5 games back of the Yanks in the AL East and 5.5 out of first place. So, how has this happened?

Well, SB Nation's Bluebird Banter has just come out with a report card on the team's season to date, and it gives you a pretty good idea which players have been carrying the team.

What I want to know is what has gotten into Vernon Wells? The Toronto center fielder was mediocre last season (.260, 15 home runs, 66 RBI). This year, though, he is hitting .306 and already has 13 homers and 37 RBI.

I guess we get to begin finding out what this Toronto team is all about tonight. How is it, by the way, that the Yanks have played Boston and Baltimore a gazillion times already this season and tonight will be the first time they see the Blue Jays? The schedule is a mess.
