The Toronto Blue Jays probably have a lot of fans wondering what to expect from this team. This event will be interesting to see unfold, as the serious questions surrounding the team must be answered. There are many pressing issues on my mind but one stands out.
Given how the Jays rotation was sub-par last season, it might be a good idea for them to pursue a starting pitcher who could reliably be called on as their number one guy. In a previous article, I outlined the differences between two solid pitchers that the Jays have been connected with in Ubaldo Jimenez and Ervin Santana.
Given how big of a splash Anthopoulos made last off season, it is a little disheartening to see the lack of moves that were made this off season. Hopefully the Toronto Blue Jays will be able to pull together with the roster they have now, and climb out of the basement of the AL East.
