Rays vs. Blue Jays GDT 3: Have mercy on us, Toronto Kawasakis!

Toronto could end the Rays season today.

Rob Grabowski-USA TODAY Sports

It has been a good season. It will hurt; it will disappoint if the season ends to day. I hoping for #OneMoreBaseballContest, but Munenori Kawasaki and the Blue Jays don't take it easy on the once-streaking Rays, then today is Season Ovah.

Personally, I think now we might suspect moving Roberto Hernandez to the bullpen in favor of Jeremy Hellickson was a mistake. Here's a selection of pitchers in the second half of the season:

# Name Team G GS IP ERA FIP xFIP SIERA
1 Chris Archer Rays 14 14 77.0 3.39 3.97 3.69 3.72
2 Jeremy Hellickson Rays 13 12 56.1 6.23 5.21 5.10 4.94
3 Roberto Hernandez Rays 14 6 42.2 4.85 4.78 3.92 3.73
4 Matt Moore Rays 7 7 37.2 2.63 4.90 4.58 4.59

But this is in retrospect. And retrospect is a helluva superpower.
