You know it's coming.

And it's not going to be pretty.

Before I vent my own spleen on this year's team - something which may take some time, in the same way that sacking a city takes some time - I thought I would first solicit the views of the readership on the exploits of the 2012 Jays. Will this be helpful to me? Possibly, but that's hardly the point. Will it be entertaining? There's a better chance that could happen. Will it be cathartic? Oh, indeed!  It's kind of what I'm counting on.

The scale I work with is as follows:

A - Outstanding (You could be an MVP, and ought to be an All-Star)
B - Good (You too could be an All-Star)
C - Average (You're getting by, there are probably bigger problems)
D - Below Average (You passed. Big deal.)
E - Fail. (You don't belong at this level. Not at this moment anyway - not yet or not anymore)
F - Epic Fail (You need to look for a new line of work.)

And I'll begin by asking how you would judge the work of the management crew: GM Alex Anthopoulos and field manager John Farrell.
Bring it!
