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.
I heard the same thing when they got Burnett, Glaus, Ryan, Thomas, etc. I'll believe it when I see it. Rays and Yankees are miles ahead of everyone else as of now imo. Jays could battle Orioles for the extra wildcard spot.
