This is the fifth part of a series of posts on the keys to the Toronto Blue Jays 2010 season. Part I, where we introduced and laid out all the keys, is here. Part II, in which we discussed the importance of Kyle Drabek's continued emergence as a future ace, is here. Part III, which focused on growth of Aaron Hill and Adam Lind, is here. Part IV centered on the continued contributions from Ricky Romero and can be found here. In this post, we will focus on the importance of a bounce-back season from Vernon Wells.
4. Vernon Wells -- Vernon's got a lot of money coming to him in the next few years, so if you think he's going to be wearing another uniform anytime soon, you're wrong (unless, for some reason, he decides to befriend some of those annoying fake umpires from last season). As long as Vernon's healthy and his contract is still on the books, they're going to be playing him. A nice bounce-back season could go a long way to making this team seem competitive again before 2015.
