Happy Clinchmas Eve, Toronto

For the first time since 1993, our Blue Jays could clinch the A.L East pennant. It could happen tonight, as the Magic Number is only 2.

That also makes this the first time the Jays could clinch since I started blogging in 2002. There have been a few highlights over the years, as well as some lowlights, but nothing like this. This is absolutely fantastic.

Remember when Carlos Delgado hit four homers in one game?

Then, Roy Halladay won the Cy Young Award. That was pretty awesome.

Then, there was the season from hell. Click that link to see when we bounced off the bottom.

Cito returned, I witnessed a walk-off grand slam, and Johnny Mac hit a magical Father's Day home run.

Oh, and Jose Bautista hit 54 homers one year, setting a new franchise record. That's a lot of dingers.

Then, there were the teases. One big tease was just last June. We led the league, before returning to mediocrity.

But here we are, clicking on all cylinders. Happy Clinchmas Eve, Toronto. It's been a long time coming.
