Jays off to Predictable start to season

The Jays come into Wednesdays game with a record of 8-7 while being on a two game winning streak following their two last meetings with division rival Baltimore Orioles.

Many experts believe the Blue Jays will win the AL east this year. The division isn't the power house it once was with the Yankees and Red Sox stuck somewhere between rebuilding and trying to get by with what they have while looking towards the future. The Rays on the other hand are a mystery. After David Price left to the Tigers most people believe they will be a basement dweller till a prospect or two can step up and fill the hole Price left.

The division was supposed to come down to the Orioles and the Blue Jays but nether team is playing as to be expected. Both teams have great hitters and shaky pitching but nothing has been consistent. We've seen days where they put up 10+ runs then they lose without much offensive support.

If the Blue Jays and Orioles can't snap out of whatever is plaguing them this division will be up for grabs to every team including the Tampa Bay Rays. Although this will make the AL east race more exciting, I feel safe in saying Jays fans would rather have a 2 team race for the division with the loser having a shot at one of the wild cards spots.

Only the future can tell what this season holds for the Blue Jays but  for now it seems they're back to their old ways of being a team hovering around mediocrity.
