4-unit Play Take #913 Kansas City Royals over Toronto Blue Jays (1:05pm EST) The Toronto Blue Jays made the big headline moves before the trade deadline, picking up Troy Tulowitzki and David Price. It gives them a shot to make the playoffs, but it's certainly not a given. This team still has its flaws, and they are probably going to be overvalued by the betting markets following the big moves. The bullpen couldn't hold down the lead yesterday and that's been a recurring problem in 2015. That puts extra pressure on their starting pitchers, and they haven't handled it well. R.A. Dickey toes the rubber for the Jays today, and it's been a rough season for the veteran. Dickey owns a 4.27 ERA and 1.28 WHIP, but it's his 5.5 strikeout rate per nine innings which is particularly troubling. The Royals don't strike out often, so we should see plenty of balls in play against Dickey. The Royals have the best record in the AL, but still aren't respected as the top team. They have consistently been only small favorites or underdogs, as is the case today. Kansas City is still the better squad between these two, and they have the pitching edge with Edinson Volquez on the mound. Play the Royals.
