The Toronto Blue Jays have been in the MLB since 1977.

They were placed in the East division of the American League, and one of their enemies was the Baltimore Orioles.

To this day, they have been in the same division, so naturally they have played against each other a lot.

The two teams are about to meet for the 700th time in the regular season.

“Today marks the 700th meeting of all time in the regular season between the #BlueJays & #orioles. The Blue Jays are 380-319 in their 699 games. The Orioles will be the first team the Blue Jays have faced at least 700 times in club history,” Sportsnet’s stats department tweeted Friday.

The Orioles are the Blue Jays’ most frequent foe, and while historical statistics say that Toronto owns Baltimore (a 380-319 record is notable), a new chapter is written each time they meet again.

Both teams are in a playoff push

This time, their matchup will have a nice seasoning for the weekend: both teams are fighting for a place in the postseason.

The Blue Jays (81-63) are second in the AL East, a half-game ahead of the Tampa Bay Rays and own a playoff spot via the Wild Card.

The Orioles, however, have been surprisingly good in 2022 and are 75-67 as of Friday afternoon.

Baltimore is five games behind the Blue Jays in the playoff hunt.

To qualify, the Os will likely have to finish ahead of one of the Blue Jays and Rays, and unless they go up in flames in the remaining two weeks of the season, that seems unlikely.

Regardless, Baltimore has had a phenomenal season and should be ready to compete from the start in 2023.

The matchups between the Blue Jays and the Orioles are going to get a lot more interesting.
