Toronto Blue Jays Season Preview

As the weather warms up in Toronto, my thoughts turn to two things. One, is that the Leafs and Raptors are almost done another miserable season where they will both miss the playoffs by a considerable margin, and probably finish just high enough in the standings to NOT get the chance to draft a franchise player to turn these miserable teams around. My second thought is a little bit more pleasant. That the Toronto Blue Jays are about to embark on a brand new season in Major League Baseball’s hell, the American League East. All is not lost for the Jays. Many industry gurus and prognosticators have the Jays labeled as a “sleeper” pick to upset a lot of higher payroll teams and win the new Wild Card that is being introduced this season. For the first time in Major League baseball history, there will be TWO wild cards handed out in each league. The two wild cards will playoff in a one game do or die format where the winner will face the first place team in the league in the first round of the playoffs. That means that hypothetically, the Jays can finish third in their division and still qualify for the Wild Card. Its not a lock, but it could happen. Here are the things that need to occur for the Jays to have a shot. Read moreRead more

Toronto Blue Jays Offseason Moves: Prince Fielder

As a Toronto sports fan, I am getting fed up. Across all of the sports teams this city has, certain things are consistent. We have rich ownership, high profile and highly respected General Managers, a world class city and market, and a loyal fan base that would fill a stadium up for a winner. Yes I said it. Toronto fans would flock to the Rogers center for a winner. Back in 93 and 94, the glory years of the Blue Jays, the Skydome was regularly packed. Not many baseball teams can lure 50,000 fans to watch their team, but Toronto did it. Read moreRead more
