The Toronto Blue Jays have been under a lot of scrutiny this season for under-performing beyond repairable measure. With 39 games left, Toronto is all but out of playoff contention. Instead, they've reverted back to the all-too-familiar role of "spoiler".
Granted, it's been a rough season for the Blue Jays, facing adversity no one could have predicted.
Toronto has lost 14 players to the disabled list, not to mention the injury bug filtering down the system, affecting catching prospect Travis d'Arnaud.
In Toronto, it's gotten to the point where fans, players and management alike are hoping to get through a game without losing yet another player.
But alas, there's no point dwelling on it, and looking forward the Bluebirds have a bright future ahead of them (pardon me for sounding redundant).
For Toronto, the future is in 2013, and this is a list of things the Blue Jays need to do to escape the basement next season, and make their strongest push for the playoffs since 1993.
