The Blue Jays season has arrived but not started according to plan. This week’s “Optimist, Pessimist, Realist” article takes a look at an inevitable question: Are the Blue Jays well prepared for a possible rebuild?
Only three weeks ago, fans and analysts were bullish about the Blue Jays chances of making the playoffs for the third straight year, and perhaps getting past the ALCS in 2017. Flash forward to the present, and the Blue Jays are owners of the league’s worst record and are also currently without Josh Donaldson, J.A. Happ, and Aaron Sanchez.
While it is still early to give up hope, there are whispers among the baseball world on whether or not the Blue Jays could become sellers at this year’s MLB trade deadline. Such a thought may seem preposterous given the high expectations at the start of the season, but could it possibly be justified? And if the Blue Jays are indeed out of the playoff race in July, are they even ready for a rebuild?
