That would depend upon one's expectations before the season began. They made a splash and raised hopes with their high profile deals during the off season, but people got all enchanted simply by the fact that they did make a big splash. What they were actually doing was gathering some players from a team which had been stinko in '12, the Marlins, and adding a 38 year old pitcher who just had a fluke season out of sync with the rest of his career.

It was more noise and flash than substance.

what a waste to have Bautista on that squad then - maybe they should have their own fire sale

Certainly it's disappointing to Jays' fans. Yeah, expectations were sky-high - in retrospect, too high. Injuries aside, it takes some time for a team to gel when 14 of your 25 weren't there last year. Factor in a spring training where the World Baseball tournament kept several members away for lengthy periods and a slow start might have been expected.

I still think they're going to make noise this season but if they're still under .500 at the all-star break, it'll be as spoilers, not contenders.

1 out of 3 from San Diego. And another starter bites the dust.

Not good.

Showing some good signs in taking 2 out of 3 from the Rangers but still haven't clicked on all cylinders.

Gotta take 2/3 from the White Sox now and then (hopefully) at least split in Texas on the weekend.

Still spinning their wheels. But at least Morrow and Reyes should be back within 7-10 days. Lind has been unconscious at the plate, going 21 for 47 in the past 10 games.

Still waiting for these guys to reel off a couple of longish win streaks. It'll happen but I hope they're not just playing the role of spoilers when it does.

Tidy (and unexpected) win against Yu Darvish got the 4-gamer in Texas off on the right foot.

Slowly...ever so slowly... nudging their way to that magic .500 mark.

Well-well-well. The lads have a chance to do what no team has done in the Rangers' history: sweep 4 from them in their own yard.

They done did it.

I do believe I'm seeing signs of the awakening of the Beast of the East.



But you won't catch me saying it out loud.

Nossir.
