That is recent history. It isn't so much about the championships as the cubs and sox haven't really been that successful. It is about the history. When it comes to baseball history the jays aren't even mentioned in the same sentence with the braves, dodgers, yanks, cubs etc. this coming from someone who has family members that have played for the first two teams mentioned. Most of my family is in NYC and blue jays are not considered near the others. Decent short history, but the same way Canadians don't care about the canes or panthers or ducks many Americans don't care about tr jays
