The weather for Game 1 today (3:30 p.m. ET/2:30 CT, FS1/Sportsnet) looks promising, with mainly sunny skies with a high of 15 degrees Celsius (59 degrees Fahrenheit). Friday's forecast for Game 2 is more questionable, with clouds and rain showers expected for the area. The temperature shouldn't be an issue at 18 degrees Celsius (64 Fahrenheit).
"No, I think I've only -- I think I've only made one start here when the roof was closed," Blue Jays Game 1 starter David Price said when asked if he had a preference about the roof. "It's definitely a little bit more steamy whenever the roof is closed; you don't have that breeze.
"I've kind of heard different things, maybe the ball flies a little bit better with it open, which I get, but I don't have a preference. Whatever our offense wants. The best offense in all of baseball, so whatever they want is fine with me."
Toronto went 38-14 with the roof open and 11-14 when it was closed at home this season. The Blue Jays also went 4-0 in "other" situations, which includes either the roof being open and then closed midway through the game or vice-versa.
• The Blue Jays will recognize the team's first AL East pennant since 1993 in a pregame ceremony prior to Game 1. Fans are encouraged to get to the ballpark early, as ceremonies will begin at approximately 3:10 p.m. Gates will open at 1:30 p.m. Toronto has yet to announce who will be throwing out the ceremonial first pitch.
• The regular season set a record for Sportsnet as the most-watched Blue Jays season in network history, delivering an average audience of 973,000 viewers (2+). This marked an increase of 68 percent over the 2014 regular-season average audience (580,000), the previous most-watched Blue Jays season on record.
