    Yeah, he's not close to 100%.

    I saw a clip of him grimacing while scoring in his first game back. I think it was on the hit that Bo ran through the stop sign and still scored....Springer was just trotting home with no play and looked to be in pain.

    I have to hope the doctors have explained he can't do further damage to it and it's simply a matter of him playing through pain or not.....otherwise - this is fucking stupid.

    - 7 games vs the New York Yankees: 4-3
    - 6 games vs the Tampa Bay Rays: 4-2
    - 3 games vs the Oakland Athletics: 2-1

    If none of the teams above the Jays catch fire and something like 88 wins happens to be the # for the second wild card, you can afford an extra two losses above.

    It's definitely still possible if they can handle the Orioles and Twins.
    I unfortunately think 4-2 vs the Rays is extremely optimistic, to the point that it really changes the whole equation.

    This scenario seems extremely similar to the first time he came back, played 3 games against the Braves, then went back on the DL.

    I'll be cheering, watching each game and hoping for a miracle.

    At least they're in the hunt and they are not meaningless games... yet.

    Glad to see the Jays throwing caution to the wind with a guy they are paying big money to for the next five years, who is already in his 30's. Not asking for trouble at all.

    Hey when you have a 9.3% chance at making the 2nd wildcard spot with a month left to go, you go hard.

    You don't want him to play while injured and risk either re-injury to the same body part or hurt something else while compensating. Yes, he'll have an entire off season to rest, but that doesn't mean another injury/re-injury wouldn't negatively impact him in some way.

    For a hail mary run at a 2nd WC spot where the winning team gets Gerrit Cole at Yankee Stadium, you really have to weigh the pro's and con's carefully on a long term investment like this.
