Why the Blue Jays will win the 2017 World Series

TORONTO - The Blue Jays are poised to win it all in 2017.

My prediction is that the starting rotation will exceed 2016's excellent showing.

The rotation includes J.A. Happ, Aaron Sanchez, Marco Estrada, Marcus Stroman, and Fransisco Liriano or Joe Biagini.

J.A. Happ will have another excellent season recorded 15-20 wins and Aaron Sanchez will easily acheive 20 wins. The replacement of R.A. Dickey will add more consistancy to the rotation.

The offence had a down year in 2016, but I predict Josh Donaldson will have a more typical year, hitting 45-50 home-runs. and 100+ RBI. 

The addition of Kendrys Morales will more than make up for the loss of Jose Bautista.

The key will be the addition of a legitimate lead off hitter such as Dexter Fowler to the fold and fortifying the middle relief pitchers.
