It really depends on who you talk to when the topic is Spring Training.
Many believe that it means nothing. Many believe it can be a sign of things to come.
Many believe that they don't know what to believe.
Spring training to me is completely unique to the player. There are some players who always struggle in spring training only to come out and have a great year. For example, Tim Lincecum has a career 5.59 spring training ERA.
However, for many players it is indicative of the season they are going to have. Many players had a strong spring and continued it on throughout the regular season.
Let us put it into the context of the Blue Jays.
This article looks at the five Blue Jays who really had a terrible spring.
Let's get after it.
NOTE: I define a bust as someone who did not come close to meeting expectations and as a result it could negatively impact their projected place on the team. For example, I don't consider Dickey's 9.00 spring training ERA to be a bust because he is established and getting accustomed to his new team, let alone the fact that he has only pitched five innings.
