Because they're better than the Pirates.
Yeah, that's saying a lot.
If the Pirates add a left handed bat (Laroche or Cabrera?) to bat 5th behind Bay and the young pitching (Duke, Snell, Gorzelanny, Maholm) takes step forward, they can make a little noise in the division I think. How much? Who knows.
I wish this city cared more about the Jays. I hate hockey.
