BIG AL's BASEBALL TRIPLE PACK (7-1 LAST 8)
Toronto Blue Jays (26-26) at Philadelphia Phillies (27-25)

At 3:05 pm, our selection is on the Toronto Blue Jays over the Philadelphia Phillies. There haven't been many trades during this short season, but one that seemed to make a lot of sense for both teams was when the Mariners sent veteran RHP Taijuan Walker to the Blue Jays for a player to be named later. With the M's not going anywhere this season it was logical for them to move their one-time top pitching prospect who is due to be a free agent at the end of the season. And it makes sense for the contending Jays to have another seasoned arm in their rotation. Walker is only 27, after all, and it seems as though he can make an impact for this young Jays team that has a shot at the playoffs. Walker had a 4.00 ERA in five starts for Seattle, but since coming east he has logged a sparkling 1.56 ERA in four starts covering 17 1/3 innings with the Jays. Walker has a 3.30 ERA in 10 previous inter-league starts and the Phillies have never seen him before. Philadelphia is 8-11 (-6 games on the moneyline) in its last 19 day games. Take Toronto.
