Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. had arguably one of the more notable breakout seasons in recent memory last year. The Blue Jays also had several other standout performers across the board in the season, and now heading into the 2022 campaign, Guerrero sees that his team is just getting started.

“Last year was the trailer,” Guerrero said on Thursday. “Now you guys are going to see the movie.”

On Guerrero’s part, he had one of the more stout offensive seasons in Blue Jays team history. He wound up logging career highs in multiple notable statistics in the 2021 campaign, from home runs (48) to OPS+ (169). His formidable campaign was good enough to earn him a second place finish in the final voting for the 2021 American League MVP Award behind Los Angeles Angels two-way star Shohei Ohtani.

After a season in which the Blue Jays fell short of reaching the postseason, Guerrero is eyeing the biggest prize in the sport.

“That’s our goal, to get to the World Series and win the World Series,” Guerrero said. “There’s 29 other teams trying to do the same thing. That’s our goal for the year, though. We’re going to stay focused, work hard for everybody on the team. If we get there, we get there, and hopefully we’ll win it.”

Although the Blue Jays have lost several key contributors from their 2021 campaign, team general manager Ross Atkins has responded with key additions such as third baseman Matt Chapman and starting pitcher Kevin Gausman. Toronto is expected to emerge as a viable contender in the hectic AL East this season.
