Toronto Blue Jays: early season observations

With the season a little over a tenth complete, it’s time to start evaluating how the Toronto Blue Jays are looking to begin the season. The Blue Jays currently have a 9-8 record, good for a third-place tie in the A.L. East, just 1.0 game behind the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees.

Have Blue Jays Finally Found A Legit Second Basemen?

“This is the greatest day of my life,” Devon Travis told reporters after hearing the news of him becoming the Blue Jays starting second basemen. It’s a lot to take in for a 24-year-old, who was acquired last year for speedy OF Anthony Gose, and has yet to have a major league at-bat. This is not to say that he won’t be ready for his shot. The young second basemen was taken...

Second Base has been something of a black hole for the Blue Jays since Aaron Hill‘s breakout year in 2009.  Hill regressed after that career season, and a revolving door of infielders have attempted to plug the gap since then, with limited success.   With the acquisition of Devon Travis for Anthony Gose in November, that promises to change, although probably not right away....
