There hasn’t been a perfect team in baseball since the 1927 New York Yankees.

 

Yet, there was a perfect team at the Rogers Centre on Wednesday night.

Try and match the starting pitchers in the first base dugout if you can: Justin Verlander, Doug Fister, Rick Porcello, Anibal Sanchez and Max Scherzer, who was facing the Blue Jays.

Now put in back of those starters the guys in the left field bullpen: Blue Jays closer Casey Janssen, lefties Brett Cecil, Aaron Loup, Darren Oliver and Juan Perez, plus Steve Delabar, Neil Wagner, Dustin McGowan and Todd Redmond.

The Jays have the best, and maybe the only, nine-man bullpen in the majors. You probably noticed the construction crews working on the platform to make room.

The combined pitching staff might not be perfect team and go 160-2 as some fans expected the 2013 Blue Jays would finish, but it would make for an easy team to manage.

The Tigers rotation has the second lowest team ERA in the Am
