Unbreakable because...

The Blue Jays didn't have any chance to compete during their inaugural season. As an expansion franchise in 1977, their roster was largely comprised of other teams' scraps. That led to a lot of fundamental mistakes that you don't ordinarily see in the majors.

Clemens, an all-time great, was at the peak of his abilities during his two years in Toronto. He also wasn't at the mercy of pitch counts in the same way that pitchers are now. The Blue Jays cannot reasonably expect any of their rotation members to deliver a quality start in three-quarters of all appearances (particularly over multiple seasons) unless they move their home games from the Rogers Centre to a more pitcher-friendly venue.

Even in 1982, Stieb's workload was an amazing outlier. To challenge it in the 21st century (presumably as part of a five-man starting rotation), a 'Jays pitcher would literally need to record complete games every time he takes the mound!
