I'm cautiously optimistic about the Jays' chances. I'd feel a lot more secure, however, if they had a natural outfielder in left, and maybe another reliever. Still, a Wild Card spot is definitely possible.

This strategy of spewing every decent prospect you have in hopes of making a superteam that will dismantle after the season is seriously stupid. If the Blue Jays don't win the World Series this year (which is still quite unlikely given the variance of the MLB postseason and that they're in a really tough division), they are completely screwed for quite some time. They have an aging core with no top level prospects anymore and a David Price that is certainly leaving. Not good

I don't know if making the playoffs one time is worth severely hurting your chances of getting back in the next 5+ years

I'm kinda with you on that. Although their core isn't exactly aging--they've still got Hutch, Stroman, Sanchez, Osuna, Pillar, Travis, and Pompey, who are all valuable players--their hopes of contending beyond this (and maybe next) year are severely reduced. Still, the next few months should be exciting.

So, uh, how 'bout them Cardinals? I keep waiting for their luck to run out, but it hasn't yet - here's hoping for another World Series win.

ETA: The game tonight was pretty exciting - gotta love the walk-off walk.

Last five National League champions:
2010: Giants
2011: Cardinals
2012: Giants
2013: Cardinals
2014: Giants

It's their turn.

Blue Jays are first place in the A.L. East, but don' get too excited. They need to win more. Need at least a 5 game cushion of lead against the Yanks.
