TORONTO - The usual suspects are sitting on their various thrones, lecturing a panicked Blue Jays Nation that it’s far too early to freak out about the club’s slow start, and that any angst directed towards the players and manager at this time is premature.

And they’re right.

It is too early to panic.

However, what is undeniable is that after 21 games, the once feeling of good will and excitement in Toronto about this Blue Jays team, the “buzz” if you will, is quickly dissipating — and not just because the Jays have sputtered to an 8-13 start.

It’s the way they’re losing.

This is supposed to be a great team, even with the injuries (most notably to all-star shortstop Jose Reyes).

What has rankled Blue Jays fans more than anything is the fact that this is a veteran team NOT playing good fundamental baseball.
