The Orioles are better. The Royals are better. The Padres are laughing at us. Ricky Romero looks like Josh Towers. Anyway, this guy sums up what I'm thinking: http://thebarnstormer.com/a-minor-bird/

Go Jays Go! Pennant in 2021!

I would say you have Rasmus, but somewhere along the line he forgot batting average is important.

I always think of the Jays as one of the most talented teams in the AL -- a formidable team -- but playing in an impossible division. Forgetting about the injury-decimated 2012 team, they won 80+ games every year in that brutal division for the past 7 years, except for 2009 when they still won 75. In fact, you have to way back to 1995 for a year thet were really bad.... Also, they only won 67 in 2004.

I respect and admire the team and its players and leadership, and am amazed thye can do it in that market in that lousy old stadium.

And Jose Bautista, though injured now, has to be one of the greatest players of recent times -- he just didn't play for the right team in the right market.

Incidentally, I'm a lifelong Phillies fan. Up until very recent years, they have an amazing record futility and poor, cheap management. But I still loved the guys on the teams.
