Epic Jays run still possible? 

Post#1 » by North_of_Border » Tue May 16, 2017 4:43 am

Jays started awful. People were talking of a fire sale. I agreed. It looked hopeless.

However, I just noticed that they are only 7 games out of first place. Considering how early it is, I think that's promising. Even if that it not plausible, the wild card is definitely reachable.

Even though the Jays sucked this whole time. Tampa is only up 1 game. Boston up 3 and Baltimore 3.5.... that is not devistating. Considering there is no run away Best team in the division. Everyone is about the same level. Some have just been lucky. Others unlucky. That's it.

I think the Jays have the talent to make a run and maybe even get away from the pack.

It would be a historic run if they did do it though. Everything is against them.

They need to get healthy first. The roster they're throwing out there daily right now is a 65-70 win group.
I don't want to say we're dysfunctional. But we need to be more functional.

The assets to make a big move like in summer 2015 aren't there... I don't see it with this roster
