Okay Blue Jays, let's play ball....
The All-Star break is quickly approaching. After a slow start the Toronto Blue Jays have quickly turned the season around. The bats are making some serious noise, leading the league in runs and the starting rotation is coming together nicely. Presently the Jays are 1.0 game out of a share of the division lead and are sitting tied for the expanded wild-card spot. With the team on the brink of the first playoff birth since our run in the 90's, our savvy GM AA needs to make a move to push us to that elite level.
Personally, I feel the team needs to bolster the bullpen and sure up the closer position. They can't let late leads slip. Every win counts and blown saves will certainly cost the Jays in the long run.
Have you had a chance to see the boys of summer in action? No time better than the present. What a great showing on Canada Day. Hopefully the lay off for All-Star break doesn't cool off the hot bats.
With that being said, remember to vote for your favourite Blue Jays to make the All- Star roster.
Thoughts, predictions, moves you feel can help the team?
I think they're 5 games back now... Jose just broke two records, but if that's all they got then I wouldn't expect much this season. It's now or next season!
Anyways lets keep positive! good 7-1 win yesterday, lets keep the momentum... sweep the A's and Mariners.
So excited! What a huge splash! Welcome to Toronto Troy Tulowitzki. Sad to see Jose Reyes go, but necessary to get arguably the best shortstop in the game. The lineup is scary; let’s land a pitcher and (knock on wood) World Series, here we come!
Another blockbuster. Welcome David Price. An ace to sure up the starting rotation. Look out American League.
Trade season continues. With an additional two moves the Blue Jays look poised to position themselves amongst the MLB elite. Adding a power arm in the bullpen and a veteran outfielder the roster is coming together nicely. Hopefully Jose isn’t too mad about the loss of Jose Reyes as the new acquisitions have already paid dividends. Let’s keep those wins coming! August is crucial to the playoff push.
