The Toronto Blue Jays have some of the most wasted quality starts in the MLB by pitchers right now, because their offense is unable to give their pitchers any run support.

Yes, good pitching beats good hitting, but when your own team can't score runs to back up quality starts on the mound, winning is not really a realistic outcome.
The Blue Jays are wasting elite performances from their pitching this season

The Blue Jays starting pitching has been elite for the last couple seasons, but there is a massive issue with the consistency of the bats that keep them on the fringe from even making the post season.
After the loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, Chris Bassitt stated that the team needs to be better, but it is clearly directed at the offensive, as the starters have been doing more than their share to squeeze out wins.
He conceded Jays starters have to be good, that was «just the reality of our team.» Left unsaid was that even when the pitchers are performing well, it's often not enough to win

Since the start of the month of May, the Jays are ranked 4th in pitching in the entire MLB with an ERA of 2.78. Compared to the Phillies who have a similar ERA (2.69), the records showcase a very different story. Toronto went 14-13 in that span as the Philadelphia went 17-9.
The difference... the extreme lack of offense.
