Blue Jays 2011 Year in Review
2011 was a year of change. New Manager, New Closer, New 1st Baseman, and most of the experiments worked out this year. Adam Lind who played 1st Base in College turned in a great year with the glove, making most of us forget about Lyle Overbay. Lind who appeared at times as uninterested left fielder, we have to assume that the idea of chatting with all the opposing players is more interesting than standing in left field or on the bench waiting to hit. The move has solved the issue of the offensive vacuum that plagued the Jays for parts of the last 5 yrs. To Adam's right was Aaron "I Forgot how to Hit!" Hill, who was traded to the Dbacks for another under performer Kelly Johnson. Johnson could be brought back next season but it is not sure how they will handle second base next year.
