Kiss 'Em Goodbye: Toronto Blue Jays
Despite the tough AL East, the Toronto Blue Jays are headed in the right direction

Kiss 'Em Goodbye is a series focusing on MLB teams as their postseason dreams fade -- whether in September (or before), the league division series, league championship series or World Series. It combines a broad overview from Baseball Prospectus, a front-office take from former MLB GM Jim Bowden, a best- and worst-case scenario ZiPS projection for 2012 from Dan Szymborski and Kevin Goldstein's farm-system overview.
Today we say so long to the Toronto Blue Jays, who continue to make progress in competing in the tough AL East but found themselves coming up short. It's time to kiss them goodbye, eh?
