TORONTO - The long-sought, elusive Toronto Blue Jays window of opportunity is now open.

Starting right now -- and running at least through the next three to five years -- the Jays are in it to win it. Nobody can say whether they will or they won't but in the past 20 years, the time has never been so right as it is now.

Indeed, there has never been a month in Blue Jays history quite like the one that began in mid-November with the 12-man Miami trade and ended Monday with the completion of the seven-player deal that brings the NL's reigning Cy Young winner, R.A. Dickey, to Toronto.
