Not the start Blue Jays fans were looking for. With a 6-9 record at the time of publication they already trail Boston (led by reviled ex-BJ manager, John Farrell) by 4.5 games.

The batting has been particularly anemic but the pitching – particularly the starting rotation – has also been a concern

Josh Johnson ($13.75m) and Mark Buehrle ($11m) have the highest salaries (223)
