Winning something like 17-18 out of 20 could put us back in the conversation for the wildcard. But as it is right now, this 6 game winning streak still has us pretty far back.
The winning streak helped the Jays shave 5 games off their wild card deficit in a matter of a week.

Thinking grand scheme of things, there are roughly 15 weeks left in the season. The Jays need to make up 1 game every 3 weeks on the 2nd wild card leader to grab one of those berths. Completely doable.

Similarly, they are 8 back of the division lead. Making up a game every other week is also doable.

I was rash about being in the dumps about this season as many others were, but the baseball season is long with lots of ebbs and flows. Hopefully what the Jays experienced in April is all they are going to endure this season and that they got it out of their system unlike other years when it's a bad July or August that does them in. They can't afford any more major slumps and hopefully it continues to be up from here.
