I love the Bluejays. I always have. I’ve been asked who I love more, my wife or the Bluejays. My standard answer is “I’ve known the Jays longer”. But love sometimes make you do crazy things. For instance, not too many people would have $300 out on bets that the Jays will win the AL Pennant in 2013. Then again, not as many people are as love sick as I am.
After the 2011 season, things looked bright. A .500 record for a team with no expectations. Anthopoulos’ plan really seemed to be paying off. So I made a two year bet (at least I got odds).
Turn the page to 2012. It’s hard to predict how this injury-bitten team would have faired if not completely wiped out and placed on the DL. But even with players coming back healthy, it looks like we have a lot of holes out there. And potentially some clubhouse issues.
The purpose of this blog is to provide a place for all the Jays diehards out there to vent, cry, laugh, and debate the roster transactions, in-game moves (please bunt more with runners on 1st and 3rd with only one out), ticket prices, the Rogers Centre experience (why the hell was the dome closed the last day game of the year when it wasn’t raining and was 16 degrees celsius?), etc.
I hope you all enjoy this blog and participate freely.
From one lover to another, this is IHEARTBJ’S signing off.
