Jays, Rangers enjoyed in-season roster makeovers
The Blue Jays of October aren't the Blue Jays of April. They were remade on the fly, strengthened up and down the roster. In that way, they're a lot like the team they'll play in the American League Division Series beginning today. The Rangers were also transformed over the last few months.
