Toronto Blue Jays Tickets

Having had what could be described as a nightmare 2013, the Toronto Blue Jays have a choice for the 2014 campaign; do they try to repair the damage done by poor trades and poor performances or do they back themselves to play at the level they, and everyone else, expects?

Given how difficult last season was no one would be surprised if they choose to rebuild, however, the smart move may well be to keep a largely unchanged roster. In 2013 a large part of their suffering was due to injuries; of all the teams in Major League Baseball their players accrued the 4th highest amount of days on DL, and were 2nd in the actual number of DL stints. A healthy Toronto Blue Jays team will certainly be a force to be reckoned with.

As far as trades go the Toronto Blue Jays have been quiet. Up to now Josh Johnson has signed with the Padres, J.P. Arencibia the Rangers and Rajai Davis has moved to the Tigers. In terms of players in, the only signing they've made is Dioner Navarro, a backup catcher. Whilst they have also retained Adam Lind's option.

Rogers Centre TicketsAll-in-all, fairly quiet. This inactivity does however leave them the chance to make a marquee free agent signing, especially with the payroll upgrade given to general manager Alex Anthopoulos; the fourth consecutive year the Toronto Blue Jays have received a payroll boost.

The Toronto Blue Jays have had a largely settled coaching staff with Tim Leiper promoted from minor league operations and Kevin Seitzer hired as hitting coach. In addition, last year was the first year of manager John Gibbons' second stint as Toronto Blue Jays manager. You would expect that with another preseason training under his belt, Gibbons will have been able to exert more of a positive influence on the team in time for the upcoming season.

If they can keep a healthy roster, work hard in training and maybe make one or two smart free agent acquisitions, you can expect to see the Toronto Blue Jays have a significant tilt at the American League East in 2014.

After the MLB had moved as many teams out west as they possibly could, the league needed to find a new direction in which to expand. That direction would be north and the Toronto Blue Jays would be one of two Canadian clubs to join the league.

Predictably and understandably the Jays struggled quite mightily in these first few seasons, but eventually the roster had ample talent and the franchise became a power in the AL East. The core of those clubs in the late 1980s included SP Dave Stieb, OF Jesse Barfield, OF George Bell, and SS Tony Fernandez.

Toronto consistently flirted with 90 wins and managed to win a couple division titles to close out the decade. Yet, the most memorable Blue Jays teams were those in the early 1990s. The teams that won back-to-back World Series titles in 1992 and 1993 will go down as two of the best in the history of baseball.

Not only had the front office added 2B Roberto Alomar, RF Joe Carter and CF Devon White to the playing field, but John Olerud came up to play first base, Par Borders was a solid veteran addition behind the plate, and Dave Winfield fit quite nicely at DH. The starting rotation still had Dave Stieb, but now he had Jimmy Key, Jack Morris, David Cone, and David Wells to fill out the rotation. This is as fine a collection of talent as there has ever been in the MLB. Really it is a wonder the club did not win more than two World Series. In the years since, the Blue Jays have avoided bottoming out while playing in the ultra-competitive AL East and have again been forgotten by most of the MLB fan base.
