The Toronto Blue Jays currently sit in sixth for largest team payroll across the entire league only behind Mets, Dodgers, Yankees, Phillies and Astros. With such a large sum of money going towards their lineup, a mediocre season would be very disappointing for the amount of money being paid.

The Blue Jays Have the Proving to do this Season Due to Large Payroll
Since the 2020 season, the Blue Jays payroll has been steadily increasing and sitting at approximetly $236 million USD this season.
Even though the off-season signings were a bit of a let down after not being able to sign superstar Shohei Othani, the Blue Jays spent $45 million on Justin Turner, Chad Green, Kevin Kiermaier, Isiah Kiner-Falefa and Yariel Rodriguez.
The Jays are currently spending around $111 million on their pitchers which $75 million is to their starting rotation with Gausman and Barritt sitting at $22 million each. The rest of the Starting 9 have a total of $103 million with an additional $8.3 million going to their bench.
The Blue Jays have one of baseball's bigger payrolls, but it could take post-season success to keep things that way

If the Jays want to hold onto to superstars such as Bichette and Guerrero Jr. they will need to do well in the post-season since signing these stars will not be cheap.
