    With the money the Jays paid him for essentially doing nothing, he could make a living without earning measly cheques playing minor league ball.

    I think you are ineligable to play for a year after a transfer..

    It makes sense as it prevents star emerging players from ****** programs to switch to the big schools after they break out

    The confusions stems from the guys over at DJF, some are saying one thing and others are saying differently. I admit I don't know much about the NCAA or it's rules so. If he can't play next year it's good news for us.

    He is also transferring to the SEC where his exposure will increase dramatically

    Yeah that was one thing I thought about. After the whirl wind he just went through, he may want to avoid all the press and enjoy some minor league ball. But he is an American QB so he's probably used to the attention.

    Things will always work out in the end, but if you want them to turn out a certain way... You need to make it happen.

    it also means he will get killed by better teams

    I'm afraid that it also means that he is still very committed to football

    I've never seen this A.J. Jimenez play but from his stats he looks like a good catching spec. Can some of our prospect guru's gime me a lttle more informed insight. Does the kid has a chance to be an everyday catcher or even better. It just got me thinking since there's been talk about TDA getting moved.

    I got the chance to watch him a bit early in the year with NH

    he hits for a good average, makes a lot of contact, very little power though and more of a line drive guy, probably 5-10 HR a year if he becomes a ML regular. Great defender though, mobile behind the plate, he's quick to throw and has a pretty strong arm. All around a very good defender. He doesn't walk much but doesn't strike out a whole lot either. His athleticism goes beyond his defensive skills though, he's a very good runner, fast for a catcher, and smart on the base paths.

    best case scenario: .290-.300 BA, .320-.340 OBP, 5-10 HR a year, 15-20 SB a year with some doubles and great D

    Everyone round here has one of those prospects that they just really like .... AJ Jiminez is that guy for me.

    Thanks man you were the guy I was hoping would drop the info. Well A.J. sounds like a pretty solid spec then. Knowing that would make losing TDA a little less painful.

    Santiago Nessy is going to be a sleeper for the Jays as far as catching is concerned...

    the only issue is that he doesn't really walk or have power - a guy like that, you have to wonder if he'll still be able to make enough contact against major league pitching

    yeah, tons of power and defense isn't nearly as bad as it used to be. still a ton of swing-and-miss though

    but he has a cool name so he's destined to succeed
