Bottom line is that the Jays fanbase should be thrilled about the recent additions and the usual suspects in that division should be "worried"

It's about time we talked about another team then the Yanks and Sox coming out of the AL east.
That isn't why at all

The Yankees have pretty consistently been a 90+ game winner and playoff team so the additions they made in the off-season were expected to make the team even better than it was in that prior year

When the Jays or Marlins make some big off-season acquisitions, there is doubt and rightfully so of what those additions could do to the team because of the year(s) prior when the team did not finish well (perfect example in the NHL would be the Wild with this past off-season)

The Rays and most recently the O's have been names to be reckoned with coming out of the AL East along with the Yanks - the Sox haven't been in the playoffs in 3 years, they haven't been a threat at all recently - you're talking about the best division in the league, where this coming season each team is capable of winning 80+ games
