Toronto is looking up at the rest of the AL East, and R.A. Dickey thinks the Blue Jays can use this experience to perform better next season.

Dickey (10-12) allowed two runs, one earned, and six hits in 6 1-3 innings to win for the first time since Aug. 5 at Seattle. The knuckleballer was 0-1 with a 4.50 ERA in his three previous starts.
''He gave us just what we needed,'' Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said.
It was Dickey's first victory over the Yankees since May 21, 2011, when he played for the New York Mets.
''We're in a place where we're probably evaluating some things and seeing what we can do better and how we can perform better next year,'' Dickey said.
''If we're able to do that, then we're able to take a step forwar...

There is a word to describe last week’s series against the New York Yankees. Horrific!
The Toronto Blue Jays lost all four games, including a double-header. I ‘ve decided not to review the series. Instead, I’ll just mention that the Jays were outscored 20-11. That sums up the series quite well. Enough said.
Now let us move on to the Houston series. To be honest...
The Toronto Blue Jays placed right-hander Josh Johnson on the disabled list with what was described as a strained forearm earlier this month. After Johnson didn’t show the improvement Toronto was hoping for, they
