It’s a shame that Marcus Semien and his Toronto Blue Jays got aced out of the American League Wildcard sweepstakes on the last day of the regular season, October 3rd.

Despite winning their season finale against the lowly Orioles by a 12–4 score, Toronto (91–71) finished one game behind the Red Sox and the Yankees (each 92–70).

Second baseman Semien cracked his 45th home run of the campaign in the contest.

A second baseman.

45 HRs.

Shortstops with pop, seem more common than power-hitting second basemen.
