Blue Jays vs Padres prediction

It would be nice if the Padres put out a starting pitcher at the time of this article so we'd know what we were working with. With that said, I'd probably still roll with the Blue Jays. Jose Berrios has been money through 25.2 innings, allowing 18 hits and 3 runs while striking out 21. The season is still extremely young, but Berrios is in the early conversation for the CY Young. Berrios has allowed just 1 run in his last 19.2 innings. Just filthy. I'm not stepping in front of that. Give me the Blue Jays on this fine Saturday night.
