The Blue Jays haven't been in the MLB post-season since Joe touched 'em all in 1993. That was 21 long years ago.
With the Kansas City Royals clinching a playoffs spot with a 3-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Friday night, that's by far the longest active drought in Major League Baseball. Seattle is next, having missed the playoffs every season since 2001.
As a younger man, I took the playoffs for granted. We were there in '85, '89, '91, '92 and '93. And that was before the wildcard spots. It's hard to believe we haven't been back.
