Toronto Sports Report: September 23rd

Matt ClarfieldContributor ISeptember 30, 2009

Welcome to my second edition of the Toronto sports report. Today I will be reviewing The season that was for the Blue Jays.  

We Started off well winning every series in the month of April having a 27-14 record. Unfortunately it was all downhill from there.

Roy Halladay was a superstar for the Toronto Blue Jays. He won his first 8 starts and was an early candidate for the Cy Young award. He was slated to start the All Star game for the AL. 

Aaron Hill also had a great start to the season and he was getting his name mentioned in MVP award candidates. He has since tailed off a bit but he still has over 100 RBIs. 

Where the Blue Jays really missed the boat was Roy Halladay. For a pitcher to be this talented in the AL East he can do wonder in the weaker NL (See Cliff Lee). His contract is expiring at the end of next season. He has showed no signs of resigning with the team.We could have got prospects or draft picks for Doc. This would have been great so we could rebuild a team with the same talent as the back to back world series winners.

It was a very disappointing season for the Jays after a very promising start. We have to rebuild because we are not going to make the playoffs with a mediocre team in the AL East.
