IF, big IF, everybody on the Jays stays healthy and performs like they can then they win the division, but I don't see that happening.
I won't argue that. I think this division is wide open. Your right about the injury problems as well but if they stay healthy this rotation could be scary.
It's between Yankees and jays with the rays in 3rd who cares about 4th and 5th
Nothing he said was unreasonable. Morrow and Johnson are at risk for injury, Romero did have a bad year last year and Buehrle's record in the AL East is not superb.
Personally, I expect Morrow and Johnson to play really well and hope Buehrle and Romero do enough to keep the team competitive. I'd still love to see the Jays acquire another top pitcher, but only if the price is right.
Exactly. If everything clicks they will be scary but nothing is for certain. As a Jays fan all I can hope for is a healthy and competitive team come September.
I argued that Toronto has a lot of injury prone pitchers instead of a rotation full of reliable 200+ inning guys. Go ahead and tell me that any pitcher in that rotation is a given/reliable option to give you 200+ innings and an ERA around 3.50. Are they capable of it? Sure, all 4 have the potential, but odds are not on their side. I personally hope they all get smashed around or hurt, if not gives Detroit a challenge.

The Rays are the best team in this division.
1. Desmond Jennings CF
2. Yunel Escobar SS
3. Evan Longoria 3B
4. Wil Myers RF
5. Ben Zobrist 2B
6. Matt Joyce LF
7. INSERT NEW DH HERE
8. James Loney 1B
9. Jose Molina C
Not to mention: Sean Rodriguez coming off the bench, capable of playing everywhere
SP David Price LHP ... AL Cy Young
SP Jeremy Hellickson RHP
SP Matt Moore LHP
SP Jeff Niemann RHP
SP Alex Cobb RHP
SP Chris Archer RHP
SP Jake Odorizzi RHP
CP Fernando Rodney
If they can improve their bridge to Fernando Rodney (I know they brought back Joel Peralta) but if they can do more ...

don't think I'd pencil Wil Myers in as a number 4 hitter just yet
