    "I see no reason why a small-market team like the Twins or Expos can't continue to remain competitive, just because it lacks players," Selig said.

    Division battle

    I thought we had a good season, we had a couple dissapointments but all in all what a year. Finishing second is something to be proud of, no matter what anyone says. I actully posted a four part article on the website Baseball Views from the North that attempts to examine why the Jays weren't able to beat the Yankees this year. So if you want to read that and leave some feedback come on over.

      in retrospect, we didnt have a bad season. 86 wins isnt anything to hang our heads about. i dont think that we blew our chances, new york and the wild card race was just way too strong. i think the hillenbrand incident and the whole wells dilemma had some effects on the clubhouse and we slumped at times. looking forward to spring training already!

          well i have to agree with you on that one, towers certinly did something to stop us from reachign the post season but hey guys you cant be mad at second place, i mean look at the Skychiefs...they sucked this year and well i actually thought this was a very productive season and next year should be fun.

            I would consider it a successful season IF they hadn't spent so much money on new players. Considering their budget, they should have been in the wild card hunt into the final weekend. (What was the budget of the Tigers, A's and Twins? I'm sure it was less than the Jays'). After all, Tim Johnson led them to 88 wins a few years back with a lot less money.

            Some general managers react poorly to big budgets (HELLO Glen Sather). JP is slipping dangerously into the "if we just spend more money we'll get a whole lot better" mode. It won't work with a general manager who is used to smaller budgets, and Riccardi comes from Oakland.
