Toronto Blue Jays: 5 Free Agents on the 2013 Christmas Wishlist

Toronto has been aching for a playoff-contending Blue Jays team since 1993. Prior to the 2012 season, Blue Jays fans had hope that this year was it.

Rumors of big name acquisitions like Yu Darvish and Prince Fielder circled over the Blue Jays, leading us to believe this team was a serious contender.

What happened?

Of course the Blue Jays ownership believed that those players were not worth the money, and they went to Texas and Detroit respectively—two teams that made the playoffs.

Maybe it was for the better as the Blue Jays have a wonderful situation this off-season.

The Yankees have pretty much collapsed at the end of the 2012 season, the Red Sox are in rebuilding mode, and the Orioles' success is speculated by many to not to last.

That just leaves the Rays as the strongest competitor in the division—an organization that will most likely not go past $70 million in payroll.

These five players are going to look the best in that blue uniform in my opinion and help bring October baseball north of the border. Take note, Alex Anthopoulos!
