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.
The attitude was invalid because the argument structure was that because it had happened in the past, it would happen in future and potential future additions were negated prior to happening for this reason. Keep in mind that payroll has risen several times in the past with each result being poor attendance. Anthopoulos has built himself a team and can add where he sees fit (instead of throwing money at the players that happen to be available).
