The AL East is going to be one of the tough divisions in baseball, but the Jays will not be a cellar dweller. Way too much speed, power, and offense. Last year, God came and smited their pitching staff. They were calling up pitchers from Double A to start major league games. Right now, the Jays have, on paper, twice as many HRs and RBI's as the Red Sox and 3 times as many SBs. I'm a Red Sox fan and I know the Jays could be frightening if set up right and they have the pieces to be a strong team. Pitching wise they will have Johnson, Morrow, Buehrle, and they will get back Drabek and Hutchinson midseason. What could be interesting is the Jays could have excess starting pitching and catching to trade at the trade deadline.
We fall in line with our thinking but frankly, the AL East could be interesting. We could see the Sox and Yankees at the bottom of the division.
