Discussion: What Should The Jays Do?

The Blue Jays are 24-14, leading the Red Sox by two games. It's early- we're not even a quarter of the way through the season- but the Jays have done better than anyone expected. Heading into the season questions about Roy Halladay's future swirled and some wondered whether the Jays might attempt to unload salary and deal the likes of Lyle Overbay, Scott Rolen, B.J. Ryan and Vernon Wells . So what should J.P. Ricciardi and the Blue Jays do?

  • Decide that the team can't maintain the pace it has set through 38 games and take offers for Halladay and others?
  • Wait it out until they've has played more than just three total games against the Yankees, Rays and Red Sox?  
  • Change the plan and go for broke this season, making whatever moves are required to put the team over the top? 
  • The Jays could use a better backup to Rod Barajas, but don't have other major holes thanks to good health and some breakout performances from Marco Scutaro and Adam Lind.
  • They have so much starting pitching depth that, as Mike Rutsey of the Toronto Sun writes, the team is keeping Casey Janssen and Ricky Romero in the minors for now since there's no room for them. 

 So are the Jays legit? How should they proceed with their season?
