With the relocation of the Montreal Expos to Washington, the Toronto Blue Jays became the sole non-American MLB franchise. Established in 1977, the Blue Jays have six division titles, two AL Pennants and two World Series championships. They became the fastest AL expansion team to win a championship. After a long period of not making the playoffs, the Jays finally returned in emphatic fashion in 2015 losing in the.
Fans and gamblers alike hope this isn’t a one-time thing and will continue to back the Blue Jays who have finally become contenders.

Toronto Blue Jays Record
The Jays won back-to-back World Series titles in 1992 and 1993. When they opened the SkyDome (now the Rogers Centre) in 1989, they were also the first team to have a ballpark with a retractable roof and led the majors in attendance in the early 90s. 2015 marked the first time the Blue Jays advanced to the postseason ending a 21-season long drought that started in 1994.
The Blue Jays finished with their best record since 1993 and a big part of that plays with their 55.4 percent success rate against their division rivals in 2015. Historically having difficulties against the New York Yankees, the Jays dominated their American rivals 13-6 on the strength of their new additions. Interestingly, the Jays have not faced any of their division rivals in the postseason in their 40-year history.
The bats will continue to be the bread-and-butter of this explosive Jays team. They led the majors in runs by a significant margin in 2015 and consistently blew out the opposition thanks to arguably baseball’s strongest lineup led by AL MVP, Josh Donaldson and two-time homerun leader, Jose Bautista. They lost David Price as their ace but the promising Marcus Stroman will anchor a pitching staff that only needs to be serviceable for the Jays to win the division again.
The Jays are used to disappointing seasons like in 2013 when the Jays were favored to win the World Series but didn’t even make the postseason. This season could turn out the same especially if the pitching struggles and the otherwise explosive offense becomes tepid for long stretches. The Jays have a high ceiling but also a low floor. They can be World Series champions at best and bottom of the division at worst. A mediocre finish is what is most likely.
