It's time for the Blue Jays to get serious about the state of their season, and that needs to start with removing Yusei Kikuchi from the rotation. A lottery ticket like Ken Giles could maybe help. So could returns from Julian Merryweather and Nate Pearson. How about a projection-busting sprint to the finish from *anybody*? Second base no longer being a black hole?
