Wow. Top 10 All-Time is nothing to sneeze at when it comes from ESPN. Not as bad as SI with their American bias, but I wish I could remember those teams.

In case you weren't excited enough already, my buddy posted this Superman/Blue Jays Trailers to Facebook today. I thought it was pretty solid.

http://mlb.mlb.com/bluejays/ anyone know what this announcement is going to be? The blue jays home page says "live toronto blue jays announcement at noon".

edit: I think it's just an error. Their site is working fine now and going to their normal page.

Maybe Anthopoulos decided just to host a "**** yeah, I'm awesome" press conference?

Grab your gloves, there should be random baseballs flying around Toronto.

Agreed.

It's not every year that we acquire talent like: Dickey, Johnson, Buerhle, Reyes and Cabrera in a single off season!

Toronto should win the East comfortably this year. I don't want to get too cocky before ST even starts, but I don't see a team in this division that can threaten the Jays too much.

I have to imagine that if such a press conference were to take place, it'd look something like this:

I agree I just don't want to say it and Jinx it. We all remember how well the Red Sox did after their spending spree

On paper they are clearly the most talented team.

So with Upton going to Atlanta do you guys like the Braves outfield or the Jays? Both could be elite

Braves, even though I think that BJ Upton isn't the brightest bulb and is kinda overrated, Colby has to have a sizable improvement for us to match the Braves.

And Melky doest hold a candle to Justin Upton when he is bringing it.

While this may be so, what is yet to be displayed is how the team's chemistry is. If the team gels, this will be one difficult team to beat. If egos or injuries hit, the Jays could find themselves with difficulties. I really hope this Jays team pans out as TO has not had anything like this team to get excited about in far too long but there are too many things that can go either way still to be making bold predictions. This baseball season cannot start too soon

Just recieved my 44 Blue Jays tickets in the mail for the opening Fri & Sat against the Red Sox. Group rates in the 500's.

I actually flipped throught them like they were $100 bills and smelled them.

Ya, I'm ready for some baseball

Well, the first step is admitting you have a problem, so you've made a good start.
