Coming into the series, the Blue Jays are far and away the hottest team in baseball. They will come to Queens riding an 11-game winning streak, defeating the Washington Nationals, Houston Astros, Miami Marlins and Boston Red Sox in the process. Over that span of games, they have been dominating in every facet of the game, outscoring their opponents 88-40. They have gotten strong performances on the mound and their lineup continues to rake no matter who is penciled in on a nightly basis.

Will they be able to continue this success against the Mets? It is hard to tell from the stats, as their hitters do not have much experience against anyone the Mets are starting in the series. But the ones that do, the results haven’t been too strong. But, with the way they are playing right now, that may not matter much.

The same goes for their pitching staff, as Buehrle is the only pitcher with many appearances against Mets players. They have hit him decently well, but the other three starters have 40 combined at-bats against players on the Mets roster.

So while the stats don’t give us a clear picture of what could happen this week, looking at recent play says that the Blue Jays have a great chance of continuing their success. The Mets know a thing or two about 11-game winning streaks, having one of their own in April, and they will do their best in ending one now.
