Every year, the Toronto Blue Jays inch closer and closer to a playoff appearance.
That being said, there are two vast misconceptions in Toronto: Rogers Communications will spend the big bucks, and Toronto is rebuilding.

Essentially, if it takes twenty years to get it right for Toronto, then so be it.
This winter, Toronto will be faced with even more challenges then there were last time around. With the emergence of certain rookies, the fall of others due to injury and contracts reaching the end of the road, it's about time Toronto finally made the big acquisition every Jays fan is waiting for.
In this slideshow, we'll look at the big-name players Toronto should seriously make a run at. These players will make an immediate impact on the club, because Toronto has ample talent in the minors already.
The Blue Jays need to pull the trigger on a couple of these guys this offseason, because 2013 is the year.
