If there is one team in baseball that would like to put the 2013 season behind them it is the Toronto Blue Jays.  Coming into the year with expectations that God himself may not have been able to live up to the blue bird have been if nothing else disappointing.  While injuries to some key cogs in the wheel can be partially blamed for the clubs lack luster season, there are a few questions that need to be answered.  That is GM Alex Anthopoulos’s job this coming off-season.

Looking forward to 2014 though the Jays have released their schedule and all involved are hoping for some meaningful games later into the summer at the very least.

The Jays open 2014 with a four game set in Tampa Bay against the division rival Rays beginning March 31st, followed by the home opening series against the hated New York Yankees April 4th.

The 85th edition of the all-star game will take place at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota, The home of the Twins on 15th.

19 out of the Jays 26 games in September are against divisional opponents which could make for an interesting final month of the season.  They play the Rays six times over two series, visit the Yankees for a four game set, take on the Red Sox in Boston for a four gamer and the Orioles meet up with Toronto a total of six times in September including a three game set at the Rogers Centre to close out the regular season.

The club may look very different in 2014 compared to the under achieving group that took the field this season but the nucleus will be here for the next number of years as most of the “key” players on the ball club are signed to long-term deals.  It will be interesting to see what this club looks like in the spring and what the fans expectations will be after another lost year.
