Toronto Blue Jays 09-10 Season Recap
After trying to compete in the American League East for the past few years with little success, the Toronto Blue Jays finally conceded before the start of the season by trading away ace Roy Halladay.
The trade was good for all parties involved, as the Blue Jays stacked their farm system with prospects while Halladay went to a contender and was able to compete in the playoffs for the first time in his career.
Nonetheless, the Blue Jays actually got off to a hot start and were in the thick of the American League race for a couple of months before folding up.
Toronto has to be encouraged by the amount of talent in their farm system, particularly when it comes to starting pitching, but the hitting is a different story.
The biggest surprise this year had to be third baseman Jose Bautista, who lead the big leagues with well over 50 home runs. The power surge came out of nowhere, which obviously has also lead to a significant amount of suspicion as well.
The Blue Jays still have a significant amount of work to do when it comes to producing a contender in baseball's toughest division, but there are reasons to be hopeful about their future.
