Jays fans, how much do you hate the Baltimore Orioles?
There is no major sports team that frustrates Jays fans more than the Orioles right now.
The Orioles have been playing spectacular baseball all year and are tied with the evil empire of the New York Yankees for first place in the AL East.
How did this happen? The Orioles weren't supposed to contend for the banner of the toughest division in sports. They weren't hyped-up in spring training talking about how they're the next, young powerhouse in the MLB. That was the Toronto Blue Jays.
It was supposed to be the Jays turn to make a big vault to the status of "perennial playoff team."
It didn't exactly shake out that way though, did it?
Yes, the Blue Jays have many organizational issues, but that doesn't mean they don't have a bright future. This winter will be interesting to see how Alex Anthopoulos attempts to fill the team's holes. Time will tell whether he goes after big names like Josh Hamilton or Zack Greinke or stays the course and rolls the dice with his upcoming prospects.
Here's a look at how the Jays can be the Baltimore Orioles of 2013.
