cleveland jays

On paper, this looked a very winnable series for the Toronto Blue Jays: better hitters, better starting pitching.  But Cleveland had another thing in mind.  The Central Division champs shut the Jays out 3-0 in Game 5 Wednesday, winning the ALCS 4 games to 1 and earning them a spot in the 2016 World Series.  Sportsnet examines what went wrong for Toronto, and has Cleveland manager Terry Francona’s post game comments about why he thinks they prevailed.

Are you surprised the Jays lost?
