It is highly understandable that people would get pissed off when they see division rivals outspending them and typically making the playoffs, whereas the Jays hadn't been relevant since 1993.

NOW, it is not appropriate to hold the view "Rogers is Cheap". The amount of money they have spent acquiring these players is proof.
This is completely accurate tbh. There was absolutely no indication that Rogers would spend money until yesterday. As much as the Jays said they would spend money I don't see how anyone can be blamed for taking the "I'll believe it when I see it" approach.
