After owning a losing record in the first two months of the season, the Toronto Blue Jays awoken from their early season slumber and now find themselves in the thick of the American League East division race as the calendar turns to July.
Going 11-12 in April, followed by a 12-17 record in May, the Blue Jays bats exploded in June to the tune of an 18-7 record, with one more game tonight (6/30). They sit four games above .500 and are just one game back of the Baltimore Orioles, who are 41-35. The AL East division race is everything baseball fans expected, with the Orioles, Tampa Bay Rays, New York Yankees and Blue Jays all separated by one game.
Heading into the All-Star break as confident as any team in baseball, below are the most and least expensive Toronto Blue Jays tickets on the secondary market for the month of July, with information provided by SeatSmart.com.
Most Expensive: 7/1/2015 | Toronto Blue Jays vs. Boston Red Sox | Rogers Centre | Average Price: $195.35 | Get-in Price: $27 | T-Shirt Giveaway
Blue Jays fans will always come out for games against the Red Sox, especially when the Red Sox are stumbling. Seven games out of first place and eight games below .500, Boston has not been able to string anything together this season and the Blue Jays have been opportunistic against them. In fact, they’re 6-3 against the Red Sox this season heading into tonight’s contest, which is the second game of a four-game series. The Blue Jays dropped the opener, 3-1, but that came against Clay Buchholz, who has been far and away the best pitcher on Boston’s starting staff. Beyond him, the Blue Jays can easily do damage at the plate and take this series.
7/25/2015 | Seattle Mariners vs. Toronto Blue Jays | Safeco Field | Average Price: $120.72 | Get-in Price: $17
Speaking of struggling, underachieving teams, the Mariners absolutely join the Red Sox in that category. Seattle is also eight games below .500 and haven’t shown many signs of being on the verge of a monster run to get them closer to a playoff berth. Robinson Cano’s lack of production has been a contributing factor in that, as he’s only batting .241 with four home runs and 24 RBI this season. Despite the disappointing campaign, tickets for Mariners games are still attracting a fair amount of activity, with one of the more dedicated fanbases in the American League.
Least Expensive: 7/7/2015 | Chicago White Sox vs. Toronto Blue Jays | U.S. Cellular Field | Average Price: $44 | Get-in Price: $5
The least expensive Blue Jays ticket in July is against yet another struggling organization, the Chicago White Sox, who are already 12.5 games back of the Kansas City Royals in the AL Central division. Not only can tickets be nabbed for an incredible price, but so, too, can Chicago parking at ParkWhiz.com, which has excellent deals on spots all around U.S. Cellular Field. The White Sox have played much better at home (18-15) than on the road (14-27) this year, but with the lineup Toronto boasts, they’re capable of winning anywhere against any opponent.
