DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) - On paper, the new-look Toronto Blue Jays appear to be the team to beat in a tough AL East.
But don't crown them champions just yet. After all, even in their own clubhouse, they don't believe that.
New shortstop Jose Reyes, in fact, put the pressure on another team this week when asked about the season. The former Florida Marlin and New York Met says the New York Yankees ``are the team to beat because they are the team who wins the division almost every year.''
Either way, Toronto has tons of talent, and with that, comes expectations. Finding a way to manage all of it - while blending in the new players to an already sound base of returnees to form the right cohesion - will be key as the Blue Jays try to make the postseason for the first time since 1993.
