Free MLB Picks, Tips and Odds: New York Yankees @ Toronto Blue Jays Favorite, Moneyline, Total and Expert Predictions 7/16/11: The New York Yankees seem to have taken a 5 day all-star break rather then a 3 day. In the two games already in the books after the all-star break the Yankees have been absolutely dismantled by the Toronto Blue Jays. They have given up 23 runs in the two games and have committed 4 errors, signs that they totally haven’t unpacked from the break just yet. The hard throwing Jays pitcher stymied the Yankees last night in Brandon Morrow, but they benefit this afternoon in playing against Ricky Romero. The Yankees have absolutely owned Ricky Romero, the uncontested Jays pitching ace, and they will need to muster out a win at Rogers Center this afternoon to avert the Jays gaining another game on them. New York presently owns a 3.5 game lead over the Tampa Bay Rays for the AL Wildcard, but have already surrendered two games to close the lead and they have a stockpile of ball clubs that will be gunning for them in the second half of the season.

The Blue Jays did not miss a beat with their home run king in Jose Bautista sidelined with a sprained ankle, but they will not want to spend too many days apart from his services. Bautista was ruled with a highly sprained ankle and is listed as day to day, but to know Jose and what he represents, we will probably see him sooner rather then later. The Jays once again capitalized on some key base running and timely hits to secure the opening tally in the bottom of the first. Edwin Encarnacion, who was stepping into the third base position for Jose Bautista, had himself a glorious night and his defensive prowess was surely the focal point when the game was finished. Edwin robbed the Yankees out of a few doubles, maybe even triples, with his quick glove on the line and he chipped in offensively with a pair of hits. Travis Snider continued his torrid pace since being recalled from Las Vegas and picked himself up a couple of bags, he also is solidifying himself quite nicely into the left field position. The Blue Jays who are 8 games out of a wildcard position at this very moment know that they need to sweep this series with the Yankees and bring the lead down to 6. To ask any player or team personnel in the Blue Jays clubhouse and you would probably get the same notion that this team believes they are still in it and they have every belief in the world that they can make things interesting.

The complimentary selection this afternoon will be the OVER in the third game of the four game set between the New York Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays. Both clubs will be sending their uncontested ace to the mounds this afternoon and what appears to be a pitching clinic, but both clubs have never cared about which pitcher they are facing for the entire season and I do not expect it to change this afternoon. The Yanks and Jays both posses extremely lethal offenses and they can strike anywhere in their batting orders. This series has already witnessed 31 runs and there have only been two games. Romero and Sabathia have tendencies to unravel when the stakes are high, with a close to packed house expected at Rogers Centre this afternoon I would say the stakes are high. The total has gone OVER in 4 of Toronto’s last 6 games, also the total has gone OVER in 4 of Toronto’s last 5 games when playing NY Yankees. The total has gone OVER in 6 of NY Yankees’s last 9 games when playing on the road against Toronto. We will consider another offensively entertaining performance this afternoon, even with the ace’s on the mound. Cheers!
