Its about winning the cup man. Win now, worry about the rest later. What better chance in a 48 game schedule?
We're not deep enough anywhere to compete right now.

The Jays situation was perfect for them to make this splash. The Yankees are old and slowing down, the Red Sox are coming off an extremely poor season and aren't poised to be much of a factor, and the Rays are retooling a bit. Baltimore's....who knows. It's the time to go for it. The Jays shouldve been a borderline playoff team last year, but injuries destroyed us.

The Leafs aren't there yet. We need almost an entire new roster to compete with the Pittsburgh's, Rangers, Bruins of the East.
