Not since Roy Halladay was traded during the 2010 off-season have the Blue Jays with a bona fide ACE. Not since the Gustavo Chacin, Shaun Marcum, and Casey Janssen in 2006 have the Jays this many home grown arms to cheer for….oh Gustavo, I had such high hopes for you.

This year was to belong to Marcus Stroman. He was expected to take the next step and assume the title of ACE, one many thought RA Dickey would fill when Alex Anthopoulos traded away top prospects for. Unfortunately after suffering a torn ACL, the Blue Jays will be without the services for the Alumni of Duke University for the entire year.

Fear not Jays fans, we will preserver and will not need to call on the likes of Chien-Ming Wang, Ramon Ortiz, or Aaron Laffey from years past. We have the luxury of being able to turn to talented arm, the likes this organization have not seen since Halladay and Cris Carpenter.
