But if you’re more inclined to take the long view, there were some positives starting, as usual, with the Blue Jays’ rookies. Vladimir Guerrero Jr., hit an opposite-field double and Rowdy Tellez had an RBI single, but Bo Bichette was once again Toronto’s offensive standout.

Clay Buchholz also deserves credit for a strong return from the injured list, but we have to start with Bichette after his 15th multi-hit game of the season …

Bichette’s first few weeks as a big-leaguer have been pretty special. On Saturday, he joined Carlos Delgado as the only players in franchise history to hit eight homers in their first 25 career games. He also came within one of Joe DiMaggio’s MLB record for extra-base hits through 25 career games (Joltin’ Joe had 22 to Bo’s 21).
