5) 3-4 Punch– The Blue Jays will run out quite possibly the best 3-4 combination there is. Batting Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion together is enough to make fans drool. Think about their potential impact! Since 2010 they’ve combined for 268 HR and 685 RBI. And, they’ve each missed time due to injuries. Assuming health (yeah, yeah, we get it) these two sluggers have Reyes and Cabrera in front of them. The possibility for more other worldly numbers is huge! It is not out of the realm of possibility that they each hit 35 HR and drive in 100. Fans would take that any day. Expect Rogers Centre to be full of thunder!
Every team in baseball has a list of “what ifs” and “maybes” heading in to every season. 2014 is no different for the Toronto Blue Jays. If all goes right, they’ll be right in the thick of a tight AL East. Fans will be treated to some really exciting baseball. These are just 5 reasons for fans to come out or tune in to Blue Jays baseball.

OK. Enough talk. Let’s play ball!
