As we find ourselves having just passed the midpoint of the 2019 MLB season, I can’t help but start to speculate on what the second half of the season may hold for the Blue Jays and it’s fanbase.
There will be trades, and the Blue Jays roster likely won’t look the same in two weeks time after the July 31st trade deadline. There could also be prospects brought up or acquired, or superstars discovered from within. This type of rebuild season is new for fans of the Toronto Blue Jays, but they are a young and upcoming team and that gives you the feeling that anything is possible.
There have been surprises already in 2019 like the departure of Kendrys Morales the night before the season started, and also the trades of Kevin Pillar and Russell Martin happening so easily. Then there was the extension of Randal Grichuk and the complete turn around for Lourdes Gurriel Jr after being demoted to Buffalo earlier in the season. Those were all things that very few would have predicted would happen just a short few months ago.
So, in the spirit of having some fun and putting ourselves out there, I have asked my fellow Jays Journal staff members to help me come up with some bold predictions for the Toronto Blue Jays in the second half of the 2019 baseball season. We managed to come up with 8 of them, and we hope you enjoy our 8 bold predictions for the second half of the Blue Jays season.
