Bluejays.com talks about the Jays weakness


Recommended Posts

Many of us think the Jays may be the main competition for the O's to win the division. Here is a part of the Opening Day roster article from the Jay's website. It talks about what may be their weakness:

The club's weakness could potentially be found in the bullpen, where there aren't that many pitchers with a long track record of success. Casey Janssen is set to begin his first full season as a closer while hard-throwing righty Sergio Santos will attempt to put last year's shoulder woes in his rearview mirror.

Darren Oliver, 42, will attempt to defy the odds by having another productive year while Steve Delabar, Esmil Rogers, Aaron Loup, Brett Cecil and Jeremy Jeffress round out the group.

The track record might not necessarily be there, but it's still a strong mix of power arms and one that could surprise some of its biggest critics.

"We have a lot of quality arms," Janssen said. "We have arms that can pitch late in games, we can be comfortable with them late in games. It will give Gibby a ton of options and then, I say this a lot, but if these starters do what they've done, it's going to take a lot off of us and keep everybody fresh and we pitch to our roles.
