    Just saw Mcguire's numbers for the first time.. not sure what has gotten into him

    He has 2 more HRs (6 total) in 113 PAs in AA this year than he had in his previous nearly 1500 minor league ABs (4 total)
    Thats quite something

    If he has learned something here, he and Jansen could be a very cheap C combo for years

    They need Jansen with Martin next year just learning the ropes... he's not going to be much worse than the scrubs we have now anyways so why not have him be a backup to Martin and get some apprenticeship under Martin's wing.

    August's rough losing streak gets 15th pick if season ended today.

    But separation between #11 - #15 pick is measly 1 more loss. Add another 2.5 losses brings top 10 pick already.

    Basically, each loss counts in 2018 draft positioning.

    Next 21 of last 24 games are against playoff chasing teams, except Detroit. If guys can just swallow their pride and throw in towel, a top 7 pick is still up for grabs (Atlanta -8 losses).

    Obviously, the higher pick yields much better prospect, and bigger signing bonus pool to work with across the board.

    Shutting Stroman down will surely help. And rolling out Sept. call-up kids usually do the job, (except they have been wonderful in 2 days of debuts).

    The Future is Bright - Blue Jays Minor League Thread 4.0

    Minorleagueball.com has the Jays as the 2nd best farm system for hitters only behind the depth of the ChiSoxs.

    In the final game in Buffalo (a 3-2 win over Dayton) Alford, Tellez and DSJ all doubled and Fields went 3-4 with his 50th SB of the season..(43rd in AAA).


    Palacios went 3-4 with a SB while Lansing got pounded 10-1 in their final game. For anyone who wonders why Palacios is a prospect, the guy hit .340/.404/.433 in July and .333/.422/.409 in August. In fact, over his final 58 games in the second half (235 AB's) once he was able to play everyday he hit .328/.403/.421 with 14 doubles and 9 SB's (in 12 attempts).


    Bluefield lost in the East division finals 2-0. They were held to just 2 hits.

    Is this on the strength basically of 2 guys bichette and Guerrero or are there other exciting bats I haven't heard much about?

    but hopefully we can use his expiring, if not at least we unloaded Novak's deal...

    I think the Jays should give Fields a shot .

    2. Toronto Blue Jays-The Blue Jays donít have the depth of the White Sox, but this is by far the most exciting group of bats in the minors. Just this past Friday, Baseball Americaís John Manuel suggested 80 power and 80 hit for Vladimir Guerrero Jr.

    An 80 hit tool on a guy not named Rose, Gwynn, Miggy, Trout, or Altuve seems insane, but if anyone can do it heís the guy. Bo Bichette is so good that heíd be the top bat in most other systems, but yet he hasnít been the best bat on either of his two minor league teams this year because of the presence of Vladdy Jr.

    Anthony Alford is a five tool, exciting talent and a clear third Top 50 guy for the Jays. Those three guys are a big part of why they rank this high, but Teoscar Hernandez and Richard Urena have potential along with being ready to contribute now. Logan Warmoth was a first round pick as a college shortstop and they added another shortstop in Kevin Smith, then Hagen Danner and Riley Adams as high pick catchers.

    Another catcher who is having a breakout year is Danny Jansen. If thatís not enough, Rowdy Tellez, Max Pentecost, Cavan Biggio, Juan Kelly, and Connor Panas are in the system. If they had just a little more depth near the Top 100, they would have been in the top spot.

    The Vancouver manager was talking about a bunch of the recent draftees on the FAN on Monday. You'd expect him to talk highly of his players regardless, but he went out of his way to praise the talent of Warmoth in particular. Said he thinks Warmoth can play SS at MLB level and hit in the 3 spot of an MLB lineup someday.

    It might be a bit too far with the praise (always better to temper expectations), but interesting to note nonetheless.
