The Toronto Blue Jays have some of the biggest question marks in regard to positional battles. With such an influx of talent, many Opening Day jobs are up for grabs. But with such a vast amount of assets, it will be tough to sit a very skilled player. As my father would always say, "It is a good problem to have."
So, who gets the nod?
Manager John Gibbons has always been a player's coach, and I believe that he had an idea of what he wanted his team to look like before spring training started. He understands that spring training is for veterans to get out the kinks and perhaps work on a new pitch or to evolve their offensive game—perhaps with a new stride or hitting the ball the other way. That being said, it is hard to discount the numbers of some players this spring.
We will outline the major positional battles and let you know who we at B/R believe will win out.
