BOSTON - Glass half-empty? Or glass half-full?

With the Blue Jays season precisely at its mid-point -- 81 games gone, 81 to go -- it all depends on your perspective.

If you’re still stuck on the notion that the Jays began the year as the toast of baseball, destined to dominate the American League in 2013 after an offseason of game-changing transactions, then to finish this first half just one game under .500 after Sunday’s 5-4 loss to the Boston Red Sox is an abject disappointment.
