Year in and year out, the Blue Jays are over-matched in the AL East. I think there have been occasions when they would have been the best team in the frequently crappy AL Central.
I will credit the Blue Jays for this...they are always a formidable team. They never tank it in September and they don't roll over against the Yankees or Red Sox like the Orioles do.
The Blue Jays come to play. They don't have the weaponry of New York or the Bostons but they compete. I have to give them credit. It's never an easy game against Toronto.
