The start of the regular season is just around the corner. The Blue Jays have had a very entertaining spring filled with story lines. These stories may carry over to the regular season and could effect them throughout the season.
Jays management were busy ‘upgrading’ the team in the off-season, but didn’t address the team’s glaring weaknesses. Going into Spring Training the fans had the following concerns:
- The outfield
- 2nd base
- Starting rotation
- 1st base
- and, offence
With all the pieces of the puzzle being put in place, John Gibbons has added clarity to the above concerns. I have gathered a crack team of Jays Journal writers to provide a synopsis of what has happen and provide some foresight on what to expect in the coming weeks and months.
