  A with the Tigers, it will take a couple of years to get all these players to get used to play together. But, as the FA will leave before they become a good team, the Jays will remain a mediocre team, with no prospects to boot as they traded them all.

    Worst move :   Trading Tavis d'Arnaud for R.A. Dickey. An end of career pitcher for a promising catcher. Arencibia can hit HR, but he ain't much of a catcher. Now, they're stuk with him as they have no one to take his place .

   Second worst move : re-hiring John Gibbons. Of all the coaches they could have hired, they go to the very worst one they could get. A coach that let pitchers get murdered by opposing hitters, that seems indifferent to what is going on on the filed. i often wonder if he loves baseball.

   Best move of the off-season : getting Melky Cabrera.

   that said, their crappy bullpen is still crappy. They did nothing to improve it in the off-season. And, if the starters falters, don't count on the bullpen to keep you in the game.

      The Marlins deal : what did they get for these prospect reall?. An over the hill pitcher ( Mark Buerhle ), a pretty good pitcher in Josh Johnson, but one that only once pitched more than 200 innings in his career ( remember the bad bullpen that will ruin many good efforts from him ? ) Let's forget Emilio Bonifacio mnd John Buck. EWhat is left is Jose Reyes. The only player of the deal that really adresses a need for the Jays. Finally, a true lead-off hitter.

   The only saving grace for Toronto is that the Yankees are injury ridden, aging ballclub. Also, the Orioleswill find new ways of losing.

     If i were the Rays, i would get the champagne ready. They probably will be able to clinch the division in early september.

   So :

    1 -  Rays win the division   with over 95 wins

    2 - Under 81 wins fo Boston
    3 - Under 75 wins for the Jays
    4- Under 70 wins for the Orioles
     5- Under 70 wins for the Yankees

a little early to write off the Jays

Nobody's winning in the east? Where are the wins coming from?

What?  You mean that with only 156 left to play that the Jays might turn it around?

Another idiot who completely underestimates the O's and overestimates the Sux.

There is no way the Sux win 90+ and certainly no way they finish 19 games ahead of another team in the division.

The Miami Jays got STOMPED by LeTigres again today. If it weren't for the Tigers LOUSY bullpen the Jays woulda been swept outta Motown these last few daze. And Johnson got RACKED. For Detroit everyone in the lineup except Dirks had a hit and Dirks, Peralta and Avila were the only ones that didn't drive in a run. Peralta though had 3 hits and Avila had 2, so the production was there throughout the ENTIRE lineup. Nice to see Encarnacion get a hit for the Jays to RAISE his average to a robust .143 too.
