It was not exactly the start the Toronto Blue Jays were hoping for, but the first week of the regular season is in the books. Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson and R.A. Dickey all saw game action, with Reyes appearing in all six games, Dickey making two starts and Johnson appearing in just one.
The Blue Jays own a 2-4 record after dropping two of three to Cleveland and then the Boston Red Sox. Not the greatest start to a season, and hardly what fans were expecting, but things could have been a lot worse.
At the very least, it was an extremely entertaining week. Filled with bat-wielding fans, inappropriate gestures from the crowd, paper airplanes, Jose Bautista’s issue with umpires, a couple wins and twice as many losses.
Although it is a small sample size, here are my grades for Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson and R.A. Dickey on their first week as Blue Jays. Grades are based on performance, and without a rubric I can honestly say that they are slightly arbitrary.
