You can blame management for not making the playoffs. How many games did they blow midway through the season because of a crappy bullpen?
 Sure they tried addressing it but the pickups weren't of much help. Tons of young talent get rid of someone to address the bullpen. They blew so many games and to be honest it was better late in the year but every time Montoya went to the pen it always seemed to leave you in suspense.

Deebo:
What an exciting season for the Blue Jays. I had a lot of fun watching them this year. Starting the season on a 99 game road trip must have been rough.

It's a shame they came up a game short, but I thought they had a great year under the circumstances.

This team at the start of the season was not a playoff contender. They needed some work still to get there. You need to calm down and look at this team in context. Absolutely no one predicted or even had an inkling that Ray would have even delivered half of what he did. That’s why he got a 1 year 8 mil contract. If anything management saw the potential and made some nice moves during the season.

And don’t discount that this team had no home field for 70% of the season. That’s not a trivial point. They were being booed in Buffalo and Tampa. The stands were filled with fans of opposing teams.

This was a successful season. A step in the right direction for a young core. This team is trending in the right direction.

Yeah, but I bet the Yankees/Red Sox could say the same thing about games they could/should have won.

Dealing a good young position player or starter for short term bullpen help is the definition of bad management. There are years beyond this year.
