The Toronto Blue Jays will feel differently about the end of the regular season of Major League Baseball this year than they did in years past.

Last year, the Blue Jays were in a playoff race with the New York Yankees, the Boston Red Sox, and the Seattle Mariners,

but they lost by one game and didn't make the playoffs. This season, the Jays are in the top wild-card spot in an expanded playoff,

ahead of the Tampa Bay Rays and Mariners, and six and a half games ahead of the Baltimore Orioles, who are on the outside looking in.  

FanGraphs says that there is a 99.7% chance that the Blue Jays will make it to the postseason.

The players will be focused on the games they still have to play, but the management may be looking ahead to get ready for the playoffs.  

Olney thinks that one of the main goals will be to manage the workload of all-star pitcher Alek Manoah over the last 15 games.
