04:56 PM ET 10.20 | The 2013 Toronto Blue Jays were a disappointment, and that's putting things rather mildly. After making a series of high-profile moves in the offseason, the team limped out of the gates and were never able to put it all together, finishing 74-88 - last place in the American League East. This is due, in part, to a horrendous road record of 34-47 and a starting pitching corps that failed to live up to expectations. Former big league ace Josh Johnson was a big part of that rotation's shortcomings. Despite being a dominant force at the front end of the Marlins' rotation for the better part of a decade, Johnson took a major step backwards in 2013 with Toronto.

QUOTE(#2):

The national league is not the AL East, simple as that.

That and he was damaged goods before he left the National League. No one should trade for a pitcher who has shoulder problems. That never ends well for the team or the pitcher.

This guy could make a GM look like a genius or an idiot...

Well, we know how that turned out.
