Ever since the Blue Jays won the World Series more than once back in the 90's when I was just a kid, I can't remember the last time I truly followed the team on their quest to win the title again... that's because ever since then, the team has been stricken with poor pitching and batting output, as well as poor management. These days though, wow... it really does feel like they're coming out of left field..
Ever since Bautista started lighting up his at-bats, almost everyone on the team started to be able to swing. Now we got batters who can actually hit... giving our pitchers some breathing room... Johnson, Lawrie, Bautista, Thames, Encarnacion, Arencibia... almost everyone on the team can swing! I'm not saying they will be able to win the World Series this year, but they're starting to look more and more like a team who can actually become a contender, if not in this year, then the next! I think the managers and owners know this as well, as there have been more press and promotions to help try to raise some hype and excitement about the team's successes and potential.
Anyone else out there a Blue Jays fan? What are your thoughts and opinions on the team developments as of late? I wonder if we'll ever see the Skydome (yes, not the Rogers Centre -_-) be packed to near capacity again on regular non-opening games.
I really just hope that management is going to be smart and try to hold on to the guys on the team right now that are really shining. Please, please, please, don't make the same mistakes that other Toronto sports teams have done in the past T_T. More TV coverage would be nice too.. not everyone has cable T_T.
