It’s been a while since Toronto has had a sports team to get excited about. There is the Argos who are terrible and do you know how much you have to suck to be terrible in the CFL? There is the Raptors who are still recovering from losing their star player/mascot Chris Bosh. Then there is the Maple Leafs the laughing stock of the NHL. The team who gets just close enough to making the playoffs without making them and in the perfect spot to get a mediocre player out of the draft. Now we have The Toronto Blue Jays who haven’t won the World series since 1993 which in compared to the Leafs winning anything, not too bad.
Toronto has always been known as a hockey city, but that is beginning to change. The Rogers Center was sold out for the home opener and there is a buzz in the air. Why so much excitement? With addition of the extra wild card spot this year, the Jays are a young exciting team with all the tool to not only grab a wild card spot but win the division (Yeah I said it). For the series in Cleveland the Jays fans drowned out the home town Indians fans with there cheering. We can finally believe in a sports franchise.
Jose Bautista is coming off two home run titles and is one of the best batters if not the best batter in MLB today. J.P. Arencibia is improving behind the plate, and we have Brett Lawrie for the entire season this year. Not to mention our bullpen has improved significantly from last year. They proved that in our first game going into 16 innings and not allowing anyone to score. Ricky Romero may have had a rough start to the season but they still pulled out the win, and Brandon Morrow only allowed one hit.
This is our year Toronto, it’s time to believe!
Go Jays Go!
