The initial prognosis for all-star closer B.J. Ryan was a mid-June return, at which time he'd rejoin the Toronto Blue Jays and give them a huge boost for the remaining half of the season.
But rest, as was hoped, didn't make the pain go away in his strained elbow. Instead, it kept getting worse and worse and eventually forced Ryan to undergo season-ending ligament replacement surgery.
Are the Blue Jays done for the season? Do they have any hope of making the playoffs? Have your say in our forum.
Are the Jays done?

If anything, the Jays have to play well enough (individually) as to ready themselves via the trade market. It looks to be the right time. Time to overhaul the roster!
Staff has to regroup, hire out, whatever it takes to get a decent crop of youngsters within the farm system. I'm not here attacking JP Ricciardi for his development overall. I think a decent job has been done with position players but not so much with pitching personel.
It actually pains me to make these suggestions, as I was among the few (I'd like to say mass but not too many support the Jays) who thought they Jays looked like a good group of contenders, which they still do IF HEALTHY.
One things for certain, if anything I've written seems to be gibberish: John Gibbons must go.
He's mismanaged too many guys into the predicament their in. Gibby it's not a video game, stop playing the numbers all the damn time. You're dealing with human's! Rant Over!!!
