There you have it folks, Jays Journal’s eight bold predictions for the Toronto Blue Jays second half of the 2019 season.
Trying to make many predictions about the future of this team is probably a fool’s errand, even if it’s a safe assumption that Ross Atkins and company will be one of the more active sellers. That said, the young players on this roster have shown that there are plenty of reasons for optimism about the future, even if contending may be at least a year or two away in a best case scenario.

The Blue Jays will still be a team that could provide opportunity for young players this season, especially if most of their veterans are dealt before the end of the month. That could mean we’ll see guys like Bichette get an opportunity, but it could also provide another chance for guys like Anthony Alford, Dalton Pompey (if he can stay healthy), and likely several more.
It could prove difficult to predict just what will happen in the second half for the Blue Jays, as there are a lot of moving parts and variables this season. I can say with some certainty that not all of our Jays Journal bold predictions will come to be, but there are some listed here that have a real chance of happening.
