Joad - WTF?
The Jays' disastrous record is all on the bats. Few guys getting on base and can't buy a hit with RISP.
8 of their 10 losses have been by 1 or 2 runs (with the tying or winning runs LOB in the 9th.)
Donaldson being out indefinitely hurts, but every team has to overcome injuries.
The starting pitching has been as advertised. Just one bad start so far. But they have no rotation depth if Sanchez & Happ spend significant time on the DL.
Still don't think the Jays will finish below .500, unless Shapiro goes into full rebuild mode by the trade deadline. But Rogers ownership probably won't allow Shapiro to completely blow it up since they're riding the wave of having so many new season ticket and "flex packs" holders plus Rogers profits greatly from TV ratings that have been thru the roof. But a retooling, for sure, is in the cards for the oldest team in baseball.
