While I don't agree with some of the Jays off season moves, I think they are much stronger than last year. It's unfair to discount them because they spent a lot of money. They Yanks and BoSox have a larger payroll and anyone could equally argue that they have overpaid for players as well.
Injuries to Koskie, Halladay and Hudson played a large roll in the Jays' finish in 2005. Assuming everyone is healthy in 2006 I see them finishing with a much better record. They have upgraded themselves in starting pitching, closer, first base and third base. Wells will be better in '06 with Glaus hi
