There really is no way to explain it, no way even to try to explain it.

The last time the Toronto Blue Jays won a game at Yankee Stadium was 23 months ago. In the interim, they have lost 17 in a row, including Friday night’s 6-4 defeat at the hands of Ichiro Suzuki and friends.

The numbers tell a tale of woe that goes even beyond the current streak.

Yes, 17 in a line is an arresting number. It is the longest current win streak in MLB by one team over another on its home ground.

But there’s more.

For example, the Yankees are now 26-2 versus the Blue Jays in their last 28 games. And to take the numbers to an absurd level, Toronto has won just 11 of 50 games since the new stadium opened in 2009. That .780 winning percentage is the best for any MLB team over any other team at any current stadium.
