The Toronto Blue Jays could be in far worse hands than those of president and general manager Alex Anthopoulos.
Anthopoulos hasn't raised the Blue Jays out of the muck of fourth place in the American League East quite yet. Since taking the reins as general manager, however, he's taken big risks for decent returns.

The roster that Anthopoulos put together in 2012 looked good on paper, and it will look even better in 2013. Here are five reasons why Blue Jays fans can put some hope in what "AA" is doing in Toronto.
