It Might be Time to Start Fresh in Toronto

The Toronto Blue Jays have been a powerhouse in the league for quite some years now, on paper that is. It seems like each year since the mainstays have made their debuts, such as Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Bo Bichette, etc. the expectations are set high.


However, since 2019, the Blue Jays have yet to make it past the AL Wild Card Series. Those series’ being played in 2020, 2022, and 2023. What makes that worse, they are 0-6 in those games.


The Blue Jays have showed electric flashes of the team they could be. The young core of guys they have built around have been star studded. The front office has shown a willingness to spend big money to make Toronto a true contender.


That young core of guys have now aged a bit with both Bichette and Guerrero Jr. set to be free agents at the end of the 2025 season.


That brings us to the current state of the Blue Jays. Toronto currently sits dead last in the AL East with a record of 38-46, 15.0 games back of first and 4.0 games back of the 4th place Rays.


The American League is loaded with talent this season and the Blue Jays are quickly running out of time to make a push for one of the Wild Card spots. That has to be unacceptable in the eyes of the front office.


Speaking of front office, the 2024 trade deadline is quickly approaching and there is going to be some hard questions to be answered. With circling rumors of Bo Bichette and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. being placed on the trade block, this franchise could take a turn for the worse.


It has been quite the turn around for a team that so many expected to be World Series contenders, if not winners just a few seasons back. The core of players always seemed to be right, but on the field, it was a different story. It will be interesting to see if the movie finally plays out that Guerrero Jr. was speaking of.
