The Boston Red Sox don’t want anything to do with the Toronto Blue Jays at this point.
They don’t want to hear about them anymore.
That’s because the Jays humbled the Red Sox this season in ways fans couldn’t even imagine when play started in April.
“The best news for the #RedSox is that they won’t have to face the #BlueJays again until May 1, 2023. The Blue Jays went 16-3 against the Red Sox this season, winning the last nine games by a combined score of 83-23, and 125-55 for the season,” USA Today’s Bob Nightengale tweeted.

Taking 16 out of 19 games against the Red Sox is quite impressive by the Jays.
Toronto Made A Huge Leap And Boston Became The Division’s Worst Team
They are, without a doubt, the better team of the two, but the difference was not supposed to be that big before the season.
The Red Sox, after all, had gone to the American League Championship Series last season and the Blue Jays did not make the playoffs.
But the script changed this year, Toronto kept improving like we all imagined they would and Boston got much, much worse.
The Blue Jays will be the ones going to the playoffs this time around, and have a 90-69 record.
The Red Sox will watch the playoffs on TV, and with a 75-84 record, they are now 15 games behind Toronto and the last-placed team in the AL East.
Even the Orioles had a better showing than Boston, who will enter 2022 as the worst squad in the AL East.
George Springer, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Bo Bichette, Teoscar Hernandez, Danny Jansen, Matt Chapman, Alejandro Kirk, Kevin Gausman, Jose Berrios, Alek Manoah and company were just too much to handle for the Red Sox.
