Toronto Blue Jays - Year In Review
What a wild run it was for the 2021 Toronto Blue Jays. Despite winning 91 games, the Blue Birds fell one game shy of an American League Wild Card berth, having been eliminated from playoff contention on the very last day of the regular season, with wins by both the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees.
The Jays certainly had their work cut out for them. In early September, they were 4th in the AL East behind the Tampa Bay Rays (division winners), Bronx Bombers, and Bo Sox. And any hopes of October baseball depended on whether or not they could catch the beasts of the East, all while trying to leapfrog (at that time) a couple of other American League baseball teams like the Oakland Athletics and the Seattle Mariners.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Bo Bichette, Teoscar Hernández, Marcus Semien, and George Springer all did some serious damage. They managed to pull off an impressive win streak down the stretch, only to come up just short and ultimately not qualify for a playoff berth. With the offseason officially upon the Blue Jays, Toronto brass hopes to retain as much of the roster as they possibly (and feasibly) can, so that the boys of summer can compete for a World Series push in 2022.

Toronto Blue Jays Team History
Founded in Toronto in 1977 as an expansion franchise, the club originally played its home games at SkyDome until it was purchased by Rogers Communications and renamed the Rogers Centre. The Toronto Blue Jays are the second MLB franchise to be based outside of the US, after the first Canadian franchise, the Montreal Expos, who later became the Washington Nationals in 2005. The Toronto Blue Jays are truly Canada’s team, as the only team currently based outside of the United States.
The Blue Jays had their first winning season in 1983, and became division champions in 1985. Between their first divisional championship until 1993, the Jays were a powerhouse in the AL East. They won five division championships within that time period, while winning three straight 1991, 1992, and 1993.
The Jays also became back-to-back World Series champions in 1992 and 1993 with a crazy cast of All-Stars like Roberto Alomar, Joe Carter, John Olerud, and Devon White. Toronto became the first and only baseball team outside of the US to compete in and win a World Series. They were also the fastest American League expansion team to accomplish such a feat, winning it all in their 16th season.
Since 1993, the Jays missed out on the playoffs 21 seasons in a row. Toronto finally clinched a playoff berth in 2015 and won another division championship that same year as well. In 2016, the Jays clinched their second straight playoff berth after locking up an AL wild card position. The Toronto Blue Jays beat the Texas Rangers in the AL Division Series, but lost the AL Championship Series in both 2015 and 2016.
Toronto Blue Jays Playoff History
In 1985 Toronto won its first of six American League East division titles with the likes of Tony Fernández and Tom Henke. The “Drive of ’85” was cut short in the American League Championship Series against the Kansas City Royals, as KC won in seven games, 4-3. Cito Gaston took over as manager in 1989 and led the Jays to another ALCS appearance, but lost to Rickey Henderson and the eventual World Series champion Oakland Athletics, 4-1.
The 1990 offseason saw the Jays swap All-Star shortstop Tony Fernández and first baseman Fred McGriff to the San Diego Padres for outfielder Joe Carter and second baseman Roberto Alomar. Toronto also acquired California Angels center fielder Devon White. In 1991, the Jays won their division but once again lost in the playoffs in the ALCS against the Minnesota Twins.
In 1992, Toronto clinched their second consecutive AL East title after they had acquired Jack Morris and Dave Winfield. The Jays got over the ALCS hump with a 4-2 series win against the Oakland Athletics, and went on to win their first ever World Series against the Atlanta Braves thanks in large part to some clutch play from Ed Sprague, Candy Maldonado, and Pat Borders.
The Tonto Blue Jays went back-to-back in 1993 with new additions to the roster this time around, including Paul Molitor, Dave Stewart, and Rickey Henderson. They won their third straight division title, cruised past the Chicago White Sox in the ALCS, and took out the Philadelphia Phillies in six games on a Joe Carter three-run walk-off home run for their second straight World Series win.
It wasn’t until 2015 that the AL East champion Blue Jays returned to the playoffs, which had then ended the longest active playoff drought in North American professional sports. The Jays got by the Texas Rangers in the ALDS, which is most remembered by Jose Bautista’s epic bat flip, but lost to the World Series Champion Kansas City Royals in the ALCS.
Toronto advanced to a second straight ALCS in 2016 after beating the Rangers in the ALDS yet again, but lost to the Cleveland Indians in five games. In 2020, Toronto reached the Wild Card series of the postseason, but were quickly swept by the Tampa Bay Rays.
AL East Division
The Toronto Blue Jays compete in the American League East Division with four other MLB teams – the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Tampa Bay Rays, and the Baltimore Orioles.

A lot like baseball’s runline, the puckline in NHL betting is hockey’s version of a point spread. And because NHL games are usually a lower scoring affair, this type of bet only uses a spread of 1.5 goals. NHL teams typically average a little under three goals per game, with the most common score being 3-2.
Single-event sports betting is the act of staking money on one selection or a single market. It offers bettors the opportunity to make a profit by predicting the outcome of one match. Single-event sports betting is prohibited in Canada. Bill C-218 and Bill C-13 were introduced in 2020 to legalize single-event sports betting in Canada. Both bills were set aside during the COVID-19 pandemic, but discussions and votes picked back up during early 2021.
