A disappointing offseason

Every good free agent that’s available or even almost any player that’s able to sign with any team they please, the Blue Jays have been linked to them.

Ross Atkins and Mark Shaprio have even mentioned that they’d like to add some really good players to the team this offseason.

After getting the fanbase excited all offseason about being linked to big time players and all the talk the front office has made, they will fall short of the expectations they put out for themselves and will ultimately disappoint.

They won’t be able to lure any of the top free agents north of the border in Bauer, Springer, Realmuto, LeMahieu or other big names that come to mind, nor will any trades of major significance.

Their biggest move of the offseason will most likely be bringing in Kim from Korea, and while he could do well in the major leagues, there’s no guarantee that it’ll be a smooth transition to North America.

Blue Jays fans are expecting a big name player to join the team, but the front office won’t be able to do that and the fanbase will start questioning whether Atkins and Shapiro are the right people for the job despite all the work they’ve already done in building the roster as it is. We’ll see how it ultimately plays out, but this is how I predict the rest of the winter goes for the Blue Jays.
