So, with the Blue Jays about to open a very important series with the Baltimore Orioles. Jays Jose Bautista, Jose Reyes and Marcus Stroman, were seen out until the wee hours of the late Monday night. Joey Bats looked pedestrian going o-fer against a pitcher he should have dominated. Feebly swinging and missing at a 92 MPH fastball. Does this team really want it that bad? or is it all about the pay day.

The 2014 blue jays have an all or nothing addition. The offense has been at times the best in baseball and at others the worst in baseball. Winning the 1 run game is the most important part of a championship season and the blue jays have had the finger on a great team only to let it slip away. The recent additions have been the most troubling. Batting career minor leaguer Dan Johnson in the cleanup spot against David Price was nearly the stupidest move I have witnessed in Baseball. DJ is hitting well, for him, at triple A but a 241 avg is not a major league clean up hitter Gibbons thinks he can find players when the rest of baseball has missed him. Dan Johnson is a fringe player and this shows how desperate the jays are for anything in the way of production. Bouncing players up and down in and out is not how you build a winner.

It is very disappointing to watch prospect after prospect be touted around the MLB as the future of the given franchise. From D'Arnaud to Nicolino to Syndegard, the Blue Jays have done a great job stockpiling the rest of baseball and I am not we are the better for it. The one shining light is Aaron Sanchez, the Cubs were adamant that Sanchez be included in the jeff samardzija trade offers. The Blue Jays have wisely retained Sanchez and many scouts project him as a top of the rotation, number 1. His stuff is already better than most of the pitchers heading north. Routinely clocked in the mid nineties. Sanchez will probably be assigned to the Bisons and could see the big leagues after the All Star break.

Something that has been lossed in the moves that were made last year is that way it left the Blue Jays minor league system. The Blue Jays have been sending top prospects all around MLB; Noah Syndegard and Travis D'arnaud are both poised to put the Mets into an incredibly powerful position. The Marlins are also incredibly stacked, only leaving the Jays with basically a raped farm system de-void of anything future inspiring. Toronto only has 1 player in the top 50 - Aaron Sanchez, with many other top prospects having started with the Jays.
