Mandatory Credit: Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY SportsThe Toronto Blue Jays have made quite a few changes this winter, in what could perhaps be the most radical offseason makeover in baseball history. And as we inch closer and closer to the start of the 2013 season, the excitement over those changes continues to build to a fever pitch.

With that in mind, we thought we’d pose a question to our loyal readers, asking them which of the new additions will have the biggest impact on the club in 2013.

Will it be Jose Reyes, who gives the Blue Jays the top of the order hitter that they have been craving for years, with a unique mix of speed and on-base ability?

Will it be R.A. Dickey, the reigning National League Cy Young winner who will become the staff ace and bring his fluttering knuckleball to the Rogers Centre?

What about Mark Buehrle, the consistent lefty with the golden glove and the ability to eat innings and keep bats off kilter?

Or will it be Josh Johnson, the righty with ace stuff but a history of injuries that have prevented him from being truly great?

How about an underdog? Perhaps Emilio Bonifacio and his ability to be a super-utility guy in the mold of Ben Zobrist?

What do you think Blue Jays fans? Who jumps out and takes this team to the World Series?
