Of all the above divisions, I think the faith in the Blue Jays is probably the most impressive, considering they have not finished higher than third in the division since 2016. However, they did win 91 games last season, and missed out on at least a slot in a wild-card play-in tournament by just one game. There’s only one other division where fans have not chosen the reigning champions to repeat. That’s in the NL West, where the Dodgers remain the overwhelming choice to get back on top, with the 2021 winning Giants not even in second place, getting just 7% of the vote.
