The Toronto Blue Jays have been on quite a roller coaster ride this season - with players like R.A. Dickey, Jose Bautista, and Colby Rasmus in the lineup, many fans anticipated a strong, successful season.
However, it certainly hasn’t turned out that way so far. The team is currently seven games back from the wild card position and 10 games back in the overall standings.
However, even through the slumps and big losses, one thing remains - consistency. The fan support for the Toronto Blue Jays has been absolutely phenomenal so far this season.
Their victory against the Cleveland Indians is a perfect example of this fact. The Toronto Blue Jays fans easily outnumbered the home side Indian fans, and luckily got to see their team win.
This proves that fan loyalty is still present and thriving in baseball. The Toronto Blue Jays’ players know that they have a lot of work to do after the all-star break.
It’s likely that the club will not be making the post season yet again this year. However, perhaps the support from the fans will give the players a much-needed boost.
This team has the roster to compete, and challenge their opponents. They’ve proven this when the team went on a 10 game winning streak.
The trouble has been the lack of consistency within Adam Lind, Colby Rasmus, and the rest of the team’s batting order.
I believe the Blue Jays have fallen too far behind yet again this season. Regardless, the fans always seem to come to see their Blue Jays put on a show.
They love seeing guys like Munenori Kawasaki and Rajai Davis provide excitement and step up to lead their team to victory.
Last night’s fan support for the Blue Jays road game against Cleveland was incredible. And this was just a regular season game.
I can only imagine what kind of fan support the Jays will receive if they ever make the post season. I for one hope they’ll make the post season very soon.
