TORONTO (AP) - Joe Carter says the Blue Jays' new additions can't get caught up in trying to do too much.

The retired Toronto star knows something about meeting high expectations. In 1993, the Jays came into the season as the reigning world champions, and he led them to another title with his winning home run in Game 6 of the World Series.

Carter says: "What they've got to do is just go out there and try to relax as much as possible and trust their teammates and believe in their teammates and not try to do it themselves.''

Toronto appears primed to make a move in the AL East after an offseason of big trades and spending.
