Favorite Blue Jays GIFs From The First Half
If you're a Blue Jays fan, it's been a pretty depressing season so far.
Toronto hit the All-Star break four games under .500 (45-49), which wouldn't have been so bad if it wasn't for the fact it's hardly the midway point of the season. With 68 games to play, the Jays have to start playing at a pretty insane clip to make the postseason.
Andrew Stoeten at Drunk Jays Fans crunched some numbers and let's just say the Jays are going to have to whip off a few more 11-game winning streaks to get to a win total that gets them back in the mix.
But enough debbie downers for one post - how about some of the positives?
Below, we've compiled our favorite Blue Jays GIFs from the first half - both from our own virtual dwelling here at Gamereax and also from around the web.
When you have players like Jose Reyes, Munenori Kawasaki, and, yes, even Mark DeRosa, on one team, it's really hard coming up with a short list. But, here they are (in no particular order) and be sure to check out our archive of Blue Jays GIFs for the ones that didn't make the cut.

We lead off with Human GIF Generator, Munenori Kawasaki, doing what he does best.
Mune was called up at a time when the Blue Jays were struggling mightily and in need of some serious self reflection. He took it literally.
Still, it was his easy-to-get-along-with clubhouse persona that endeared him well to fans and teammates alike.
Another guy who has proved to be quite GIF-worthy is veteran Mark DeRosa. Even if his teammates won't acknowledge him.
Of course, being the vet he is, DeRosa knows how to give it right back.
And he isn't afraid to tell it like it is.
Neither is this guy.
Speaking of Red Bull...
Yep, the Blue Jays season has been one wild ride of emotions. Guys losing their cool, managers losing their hats.
But there's certainly been some lighter moments along the way.
Mostly at Edwin's expense.
But even Edwin knows how to laugh. Sometimes.
And even though the rally stick couldn't save this team from its early-season struggles...
...it's hard to argue the passion hasn't been there.
Even if it's been one of those years where all you can do is throw your hands up in disbelief.
The fans, however, have taken on a more impassioned approach...
...to put it midly.
