Reacts: Surprise, Jays fans think they need to add a pitcher

Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across MLB. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged-in Toronto Blue Jays fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, a majority of Blue Jays fans think the team needs to add someone to the roster before the season starts.

When asked what specifically could be improved, 97 percent of fans said they need to add pitching, while 3 percent said the Blue Jays could add defense.

I know this all comes as a shock to you all. I guess the surprise is that there were 3 people who thought defense over adding a pitcher. I’m thinking 3% made a mistake when they clicked the button.

Spring training has made me feel a bit better about our pitching, but then ‘pitchers are ahead of batters’ is the motto of early spring games.

Around the league, two-thirds of fans believe their team needs to add a player with just over half of MLB fans wanting their team to add a pitcher. It seems like all teams would like more pitching. I don’t know if this is a recent thing, I wonder if in the 50s and 60s fans always thought their team needed more pitching or if this is a new thing. I guess when you have 14 pitchers on a staff, pitching is going to be at a shortage.
