The Toronto Blue Jays had another impressive season in 2016. They keep adding to their stacked lineup and some of their young pitchers are developing into consistent hurlers.
The Blue Jays arguably have the best offense in baseball. Their lineup is loaded with power hitters who have contended for homer run titles. They did lose one of them to free agency and I’m not sure they did enough this offseason to replace Edwin Encarnacion’s production.
Can Aaron Sanchez repeat his consistent performance from a season ago?
Here is the 2017 MLB season preview for the Toronto Blue Jays.
Kansas City defied all odds and represented the American League in the 2014 World Series. They gave San Francisco quite a battle. The Giants needed seven games to win their third ring in five years.
Kansas City are coming off back-to-back winning seasons. They are trending in the right direction. They aren’t a prime free agent destination, but did manage to lure a few former All-Stars to the team in the offseason.

Did Seattle make a smart move by acquiring talent to win right now?
