This gives the Blue Jays a realistic chance at signing top free agents Prince Fielder or Yu Darvish.
These are not exactly new ideas for the Blue Jays. They have had All-Stars before, their farm system has produced very good players such as Alex Rios and Roy Halladay. The Blue Jays have made big free agent signings in the past such as Frank Thomas and Troy Glaus.
However, this time around, it seems like this Blue Jays team is innately "Toronto" and connects to the fan base like no Blue Jays team before.
