Whose 0-2 Looks Worse, the Yankees Or the Blue Jays?

The Yanks, injured, old and battered are 0-2.  The Blue Jays, who went wild in the off-season picking-up names like Josh Johnson, Jose Reyes and R.A. Dickey, are also 0-2.  What record looks worse during this early Major League Baseball season?Well it is the Yankees, of course.  Why?  Two reasons.  The first being that they lost to the rival Red Sox in the first two games and looked pretty disgusting in doing so.  Losing is one thing.  Looking terrible (Derek Jeter’s leadership is missing big time here) is another.  But the worst thing ever is losing to your rival.

Add to this the fact that SMART baseball people recognize that Toronto’s collection of off-season players is just that, a collection.  Toronto general manager Alex Anthopouos went for it this year because the division is down, which makes sense.  But Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle are all potential damaged goods and R.A. Dickey can’t possibly do what he did last year.  So hold the phones on the Jays.

The Yankees are the Yankees.  Good or bad, they are the story.  And it is no different here.
