If the Jays can finally have a stellar season would that bring you back? I can understand why its frustrating, because the team went from being one of the best in all of baseball to bad and mediocre. Pat Gillick was a genius, one of the best general manager's ever and that's why he's in the hall of fame now. Then you have some really awful management by J.P. Ricciardi, bad contracts and the team gets a poor image.
You bring in Anthopoulos and he begins to turn around the team by acquiring young talent and building the farm system. Now we have ourselves a likely contender in the toughest division in all of baseball.
This is going to be a fun year to watch the Jays IMO, I think we're going to see a lot of people get back into baseball.
