The Summer of Jo-Jo begins. And make no mistake: This is more than an affectation that we attempting to torque into a meme.
From the moment the Jays acquired the lefty from Atlanta last year, we saw the potential for him to reclaim his status as a potential mid-rotation arm on a good team. It could be that he gets bumped from the rotation in a week's time, and he gives the Jays 100 innings swinging back and forth between starting and the pen. Or maybe he really does stick, and turns into an inning eater to support the bright shining arms at the front of the rotation.
However it plays out, or whatever manner of value he provides, we believe with the entirety of our being that Jo-Jo Reyes will be a valuable part of the Blue Jays this year. And it starts tonight.
We're positively giddy.
