It’s been 22 years since the Blue Jays last saw the postseason, a streak matched by no one else in any of the “Big 4” (NHL, NBA, NFL, MLB).
For the lives of many younger Jays fans, the playoffs were merely a fantasy. Every year, Toronto would show flashes of brilliance, but it was never long before the team started losing.
Slowly, the ball caps on the side walk would be replaced with Maple Leafs toques. October would come and go, and yet another AL East title was won by someone else, and Toronto fans would try to be re-invigorated by the thought that the Maple Leafs would somehow solve Toronto’s woes.
