Uncustomed Heroes of 2017: Blue Jays
*Dances around joyfully as the Blue Jays end the season in last place*
It's just really satisfying. After two years of the Jays just deciding halfway through that they're gonna compete and making the ALCS, they FINALLY just stink for a season, and end up in 5th place, while deserving teams like the Yankees and Red Sox made it to the playoffs. This was a very satisfying outcome.
Not that the Jays didn't have its share of standouts amid a muddy, disorganized roster. Marco Estrada had another high-strikeout year, despite not really having a ton of wins.
Coming Tomorrow- They weren't perfect, but they still had enough signs of life to give their fans a hint of optimism.
