The Toronto Blue Jays were a great team to watch back in the glory days of the '90s. They had everything you need in a competitive team. They had top-of-the-line, well-known players. They had exciting young players who were part of the present and the future.

They had guys who could come up in clutch situations. They had players who knew how to win, and win consistently. It was these kinds of players who would bring 40,000 people to the Dome every night. It was these kinds of players who made people want to watch and follow every single pitch. More importantly, it was these kinds of players who gave the city of Toronto a winner and its last professional major championship.

For the last 18 years, the city and Blue Jays fans across the nation have been waiting for that feeling to return. Many say that it is starting to happen now.

Can we really compare what happened in the past to what is happening now? Can we take that comparison and somehow draw a conclusion that would have the Jays in the postseason?

Well, we can certainly try.

Let’s look at the four factors mentioned above: top-of-the-line, well-known players, exciting young players for present and future, clutch players and players who knew how to win, and see if the Blue Jays of 2012 are setting themselves up to recapture the glory days of the '90s.
