The frustrating Blue Jays seem intent on teasing their fanbase until the very end. On Thursday at Rogers Centre, behind starter Marco Estrada the Jays beat the first wild-card Yankees 4-0 to stay within five games of the second wild-card M’s.

The Jays earlier had lost outfielder Nori Aoki to the flu, had to sit DH Kendrys Morales who was under the weather, lost pitcher Taylor Cole to a broken toe and have 13 players currently on the disabled list รข?? yet they took two of three from the Yankees while facing $63-million worth of starting pitchers in the series.

It’s daunting. The Jays need a win streak to even crawl back to .500, but have shown zero ability to put any such streak together this year. They are 10-6 over their past 16 games and with 48 games remaining, if they go 10-6 three more times, that would give them 84 wins for the year, still not enough for any post-season.

The wild-card race is a mirage despite the numbers, but if you are a baseball fan, there is still entertainment value in what the Jays are doing.
