The Toronto Blue Jays were named by many as favorites to win the AL East Division this year.
So far, while they are away from a catastrophe, they have achieved something less, including a 22-20 record.
At the moment, they are third in the division, seven games behind the New York Yankees and 2.5 games behind the Tampa Bay Ray.
The Blue Jays were tough at home with a 14-8 record at the Rogers Center.
On the street, however, they have a medium 8-12 mark.
One of the reasons they can’t play consistently while playing outdoors is because they are not hitting the runners in the scoring position.

They killed a number of protesters by hitting them untimely.
“The Blue Jays are batting .163 with the runners in the scoring position on the road this season. This is their worst sign of the first 20 games on the road in franchise history, “SportsNet statistics tweeted.

In the short history of the Blue Jays, they have not hit the second and third base runners badly through their first 20 games in a single season while playing outdoors.
The Blue Jays have extremely talented hitters, such as Vladimir Guerrero Jr., George Springer, Teoscar Hernandez, Bo Beachet, Matt Chapman, Lord’s Guerrilla Jr. and many more.
This leads us to believe that with RISP on the road their .163 average is going to rise faster.
In almost every case, a team will be more effective at home, but there are many reasons other than misfortune to explain Jess’s plight for driving on the road.
It’s easy to see them increase that average in upcoming games.
