TORONTO - I’m not going to rag on Rogers again for being cheap, disinterested owners of a Major League Baseball team, though I believe they certainly are.

And I realize it’s still early in the season and no one is running away with the AL East.

But the way the Blue Jays are trending considering the problems that have arisen already this season (rotation, bullpen, second base, hitting for average, stranded runners), it leaves one with the impression that 2013 is about to repeat itself.

The Jays are like the proverbial wayward son in the basement (with the big pile of Mad and Cracked magazines) who won’t get a job, won’t go back to school, won’t lay off the weed and constantly disappoints. You have faith that somehow something good will happen, but never does.

The Jays have stumbled out of the starting gate again and fans — who have been told that this team needs everything to go right to contend — are rightfully starting to become concerned.
