But if the 2011 Reyes and 2010 Johnson show up, the Jays might be the favorites in the AL East. OK, maybe not the favorites, but at least a good bet for a playoff spot.
Reyes is better than Escobar, thats a no brainer, and Johnson despite last years so called "bad year" was better than every Jay pitcher (minus Morrow because his numbers were skewed a little because of injuries).

Without a doubt, the Jays are way better than last year, especially with everyone returning healthy.
