Storytime: Blue Jays - 2016 Wild-Card vs Baltimore (Pt. 1)


The fall of 2016 was a time when all were wondering who the Blue Jays were and what exactly they could do. The previous year had brought the city to a high that hadn't been witnessed since 1993, but this was a new year and a team that had undergone much change. It took the Jays until game 162 to earn their Wild Card slot and the only thing standing in the way of a second straight divisional series appearance was the Baltimore Orioles. In this series we examine a Wild Card game that had equal parts excitement, anxiety and drama.


In part one, Jake and Zubes set the stage by reminding themselves of all the ho-hum moments that the 2016 Blue Jays brought; lack-lustre trades and disappointing series alike. Relive the feelings experienced when the Jays punched their ticket to the Wild Card game and board the rollercoaster ahead of a wild card ride that all these years later is still worth revisiting.
