There is no doubt that the Toronto Blue Jays have opened their wallets big time this past offseason and are willing to make a big time move to contend in the American League.
But you have to put everything into perspective. This was still a horrible baseball team last season at 73-89, and will have to win a minimum of 20 extra games to put them in a position to be in a playoff spot.
I know they acquired a whole bunch of talent, but with every single player they acquired, comes a question mark.
The Angels seem to be in a stronger position with the acquisition of star outfielder Josh Hamilton from Texas. The Hamilton-Albert Pujols combination gives the Angels some serious fire power.
The Blue Jays will also have to contend with the New York Yankees, Detroit Tigers, Texas Rangers and Tampa Bay Rays who will all expect to be in contention as well come year’s end.
