Add this to the fact that he also said that the Jays were:

7th in starting rotations
7th in infields (counting Encarnacion as the 1B and Bonifacio/Izturis both at 2B)
an honorable mention for outfields

and things are looking pretty good.
I'm actually surprised we were top 10 in infields.

The only gold glove candidate I see is Lawrie. Reyes is a good defender but there are a handful of better defensive SS. Izturis and Bonifacio are similar to Reyes imo, although I'll admit I haven't seen a ton of EB at 2nd... and EE hasn't ever played a full season.

But I will admit we've got a ton of potential defensively.

For the first time since I can remember we don't have a guy who I'm going "please god don't hit it to _______"
