04:57 AM ET 12.18 | With the relative inaction of the AL East teams in terms of high profile moves and a desperately-seeking-winner fan base in Toronto, AA has risen to the top of the sporting world mountain in Toronto. He saw an opening and, as he has always maintained, he had the resources to go for it when the time was right. That time is now. Underneath the astounding change of our beloved Blue Jays is still a firm foundation of prospects with legitimate chances to become major league ready. A completely different story is being harnessed from kids like D.J. Davis, Aaron Sanchez, A.J. Jimenez and Anthony Gose. They are drafting the next trilogy as AA keeps acquiring assets to build a long term contender. If we lose Josh Johnson after the year I would hope Drew Hutchison, Kyle Drabek or even Dustin McGowan may be ready to step in - we have more possibilities because this team is built to contend for the next three years. Prime years for most of the guys.

Bout time they decided to join the race. Pretty insulting the O's beat them to the playoffs

They've taken advantage of the hockey lockout. Can't remember the last time anyone talked about the Jays in December.

blue jays would need to win their division unless, the manager lacks in experience!!!

It's going to be an interesting race, The O's, are a outstanding young club, The Yankees have a ton of experience, The Rays probaby have the best pitching and Boston is looking to rebuild now, in any event it should be a lot of fun!!!!!

would interested to see WHO leads the division? the yankees aren't looking too strong in their roster but this team has alot of resiliance in their franchise,the rays could have been a wreck rotation without james shields but lets just hope the small guys leaded by david price do get in the right direction and endure hard times through the season!!!

the orioles have by far a tough rotation together with good lineup plus the manager knows how to move the parts in his team, the oriles have more chances in making the play offs than the rays, but anything could happen, the jays??well this franchise has alot of wood in their roster, everything it looks good except the manager nobody knows what would be the outcome in that matter!!
