The Toronto Blue Jays made headlines last week when General Manager Alex Anthopoulos traded for starting pitchers Mark Buehrle and Josh Johnson. The move had enough of an effect to shake up the 2013 rotation to the point that their 2012 opening day starter, Ricky Romero, moved down to third on their official depth chart.
Toronto now potentially boasts one of the strongest rotations in baseball and a solid bullpen to back it up. Expectations are as high for next season as they have ever been in the Anthopoulos era but there is a long time before opening day.
All that time off means we can look into our crystal ball and predict how the Blue Jays pitchers will fare this season. These are just my predictions, and I am in no way a fortune teller. Have your say in the comments section below.
