Will the Blue Jays claim second place in the AL East?

There won't be any October baseball for the Blue Jays this year, as Sunday is the last game of the season for the team.

Toronto has already been eliminated from the playoffs, which means that local baseball fans won't see their team back on the field at the Rogers Centre until next year.

Ahead of Sunday afternoon's games against the Baltimore Orioles, both the Blue Jays and the New York Yankees were tied for second place in the AL East with identical 83-78 records.

Both teams play their last game of the season today.

So, if they both win, they'll both finish tied for second place. Otherwise, one will take home the consolation prize in the division, while the other will have to settle for a third-place finish.

The Blue Jays head into the off-season with a 21-year post-season absence, the longest active drought in the major leagues now that the Kansas City Royals are playoff bound.

Before this year, the Royals had not made the playoffs since 1985, the same year the Jays made the playoffs for the first time and Kansas City won the World Series.
