    The Blue Jays Thread

    Figured at 23-16 the Blue Jays could use a thread. I am pretty surprised they are doing this well considering their team ERA is 9th in the AL and their team batting avg is 12th (but 2nd in AL with Rays in runs scored). What do people expect them to finish? I kinda figured they would get around 75 wins but now I'm starting to wonder....
    Hoping Rivera can pitch forever!

    Re: The Blue Jays Thread

    Just remember that they started last year even better than this year and look where that ended up.

    Mind you, they haven't had nearly as many injuries this year as they had last year at this time.

    Beating up on the Twins right now, 11-1 in the 7th.

    12-2 v KC, CLE, BAL, OAK

    The only team with a winning record they have been OK against is TEX.

    2-7 v Tampa & Boston and haven't played New York yet.

    Let's see how they do when the schedule gets a little tougher.

    Lead the majors in homers behind shocking starts by Wells, Bautista and A-gonz.

    Jose Bautista just hit another home run. 2-1 Jays, top of 5th against Seattle.

    Re: The Blue Jays Thread

    Why does every player in the Jays lineup have more home runs than our top HR hitter ? Is there something in Canada I don't know about ?
    Roger Maris = single season "natural" home-run record-holder.

    Just don't throw them fastballs and they will cool off. They are the AL version of the Reds - they'll be irrelevant by the end of August.

    Blue Jays activate Jesse Litsch from the 60-day DL.

    Great! See if he can go a whole inning against the Rays without crapping his pants. None of their other pitchers can.

    Re: The Blue Jays Thread

    It seems to me that the Blue Jays, even more than the Orioles, have suffered from being in the AL East with higher payroll teams. The Blue Jays are currently one game above .500, if they finish with a winning record that will make 4 out of 5 years with a winning record, yet they have not come close to making the playoffs.

    While a small internet poll does not represent a significant representative sample of public opinion, the results of the polls are interesting, and perhaps indicative of how many Blue Jay fans feel.

    Here's a link to the most recent poll thread. 80% support a cap, and this percentage is close to previous polls on forums such as the Blue Jays, Pirates, and Royals forums.

    they don't have some huge upside guys on the team...solid roster, but can't be serious contenders in the al east. put them in the nl, they should be a playoff team.
    always reasonable

    They have exceeded expectations so far this year. The Orioles were picked by many to finish ahead of the Blue Jays in the preseason. That is pretty unlikely at this point.

    You can add me to that list. I had the O's in front of the Jays.

    So did several baseball publications. The Jays have overachieved, and the O's have underachieved. I expect next year may be different in that regard.

    Precisely why baseball is dying in Toronto.

    That's what I said on the Blue Jays forum. What good does it do to finish above .500 if your team still never comes close to making the playoffs.

    In my opinion the Blue Jays need a hard salary cap in order to succeed in the AL East. Toronto can be a great baseball city, used to lead the league in attendance. Fans get tired of seeing their team finish out of the running, especially if they sense the system is not a fair one.

    Nothing new. bobby jr wants to turn every thread into salary cap discussion thread.
