Toronto Blue Jays 2014 Season
Last offseason, the Toronto Blue Jays made two huge trades with Mets
for a number of touted players. The moves did not pay off in the least and left the Blue Jays at the bottom of the AL East. This time around, GM Alex Anthopoulos is going in another direction, staying quiet and pinching pennies all winter.
That’s not to say that Toronto hasn’t made any moves this offseason, in fact, the Blue Jays have signed Dioner Navarro, reacquired Eric Katz, and banked Chris Getz. Still, the Blue Jays are left with a problematic bullpen and two gaping holes in the starting rotation. The franchise is reportedly in talks to land Ervin Santana and/or Ubaldo Jimenez in the next week. The offseason is not over yet, Toronto fans, with a month until Spring Training, there’s still time to bag a big-name impact player off of the free agent market. Get your Toronto Blue Jays tickets now and see if the past years of spending will finally come to profit this season!
2013 figures to be one of the most significant seasons for the Blue Jays in recent memory. In 2012, the Jays managed a mediocre 73-89, good for 4th in the AL East and 20 games out of the MLB playoffs. However, their extensive offseason activity has many fans and odds-makers looking to the World Series. Coming into
Spring Training, Toronto's the favorite in Vegas to win the World Series.
After manager John Farrell was released to take the same position with the Red Sox, the Jays rehired former manager John Gibbons. Gibbons will have a stable of new talent to work with. In free agency, the Blue Jays signed 2012 All-Star MVP Melky Cabrera and infielder Maicer Izturis. In a move that sent shockwaves through the baseball world, Toronto made a blockbuster trade with the Miami Marlins, acquiring all-stars Mark Buerhle, Josh Johnson, and Jose Reyes. The Jays were also able to acquire 2012 NL CY Young winner R.A. Dickey from the Mets and sign him to a 2-year contract extension. Dickey will be the opening day starter on 4/2 at home against the Indians.
It remains to be seen whether all the new talent can mesh with Jose Bautista and the remaining 2012 Jays to challenge the Yankees, Orioles, Rays, and Red Sox, for supremacy in the ultra-competitive AL East. Fans hoping to see how the season plays out at the Rogers Centre can expect to pay an average of about $84 per ticket for Blue Jays tickets, good for 10th highest in the league and 8% higher than league average. Despite their all-star roster, the Toronto Blue Jays tickets only average $66 on the road, 20th highest in the league.
