Number Five: Toronto Blue Jays (9-19)
Remember the whole, “The cream rises to the top” thing in the introduction? Yeah… the Blue Jays are the polar opposite.
Sure the numbers are awful, but it’s just bad baseball to watch. The Blue Jays are messing up everything kids are taught when they start playing baseball.
The fielding is bad, the hitting is bad, and the pitching is abysmal. The, “The season is still young” argument is starting to get old. The season isn’t as young as people think, and when a team is already 8 games back, that’s a tough hole to dig out of.
The Jays are one of the worst teams in the league, and they don’t look like they’re getting much better. This is the third straight week they find themselves at the bottom of the AL East totem pole, and they don’t look like they are climbing much higher.
There are arguments for both sides of the coin, but let’s be realistic, the Blue Jays aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. They just aren’t as good as the rest of the division, and they don’t seem to be getting much better.
It will be interesting to see where the Blue Jays are come time for the mid-summer classic.
