How will the Blue Jays do in 2009?
Fri, April 24, 2009

By BOB ELLIOTT, SUN MEDIA

The curtain goes up on a history-making season tonight at the Rogers Centre.

After a strictly Canadian scoreboard presentation, Roy Halladay takes the mound against the Detroit Tigers.

And the rest of way ... well, get ready.

For the first time in this their 33rd year, the Blue Jays open the season with three arms in their starting rotation with less than 66 innings of major league experience to their names.

Basically three starts out of every five go to rookies.

Can the young staff step into the Jays' pitching void? Is there any hope for 2009? Have your say in our forum.

Rotation worries for Jays

an open letter to all those idiots who ruined the Jays homeopener and nearly forfeited the game: dont ever come to a ball game again. I know you people well. you dont come to see the sports, your first priority is get as drunk as you can in the local bars before the game so you have an excuse to act like a bunch of yahoos and ruin it for other fans. thought throwing baseballs and beer cups and garbage onto the field and at other fans was funny, eh? you guys ruined leaf games, raptor games, Toronto fc games, even tennis matches (racist chants, booing your own team, fighting other fans, tossing crap onto ice/court/field, etc). Engaging in blatant criminal behaviour and then saying its your "right" because you bought a ticket to the game. Now you want to contaminate the jays games, once the only safe haven of sport to take my children to? grow up you 19 to 34 year old male drunken hooligans, we should do like the european cops do to violent soccer fans and a) blacklist them from coming to games, and b) break out the riot gear if any of them try to come within 100 feet of the stadium. I dont care if that means empty seats, Id rather see all toronto teams fold and go bankrupt than give a group of low class, worthless, mentally challenged punks their venue to act out their drunken violence. If they didn't have that, maybe they might actually move out of their mother's basement and get a job and do something good for society.

They'll hover around .500 and get most of their wins late in the season when it is a bit too late, typical of past Jay teams (and Toronto teams in general for that matter). The starting rotation does not have enough depth to compete in the AL East.
