So I believe this team will make the playoffs
Just because you didn't blow a save doesn't mean you won the game. You can have 25 blown saves in a single game and still win it.

Haven't been this excited for a season, probably since the summer we signed AJ, BJ and all the other jobs. That turned out to be a disappointment, but with all the home grown talent we've got, this should be an awesome year!

DISGUSTING!! pitching. They should be be able to roll over teams. Having Syndergaard, Sanchez, Nicolino as our top 3 starters is insane.

Actually, pretty reasonable stances. How good will even the great Pujols be in the 6th year of his contract?

As very young pitchers go, Alvarez is as good a bet as any to succeed and succeed well. Great arm, even greater head.

Texas, KC, San Diego, Arizona by Baseball America. We have the 5th best farm system in baseball.

My god, Farrel has EE in the cleanup spot instead of Lind. Is this a mirage?

In regards to the Lugnuts roster, I could see Noah Syndergaard move through the ranks fairly quickly.

We're interchangeable with KC and San Diego. It seems so close in terms of prospects that most analysts list either KC, San Diego or Toronto as #1. BA just have to put the Rangers at #1 because they have Yu Darvish and Jurickson Profar.

I've seen some rankings put the Jays anywhere from 2nd to 5th. Fangraphs has the Jays at #2, BA has us at #5, and I think I remember one other well known source that had us pegged at #3.

The Jays upclose description might be inaccurate; I tried to record the Bautista/Romero one twice and both times it was actually the JPA/Lawrie/Snider show

If Rogers cared about the Jays they'd sell Fido and give Pujols a 20 year 1 billion dollar contract. Any team that tries to give responsible contracts obviously and will spend a lot on scouting and drafting and taking in bad contracts like Teahen obviously doesn't care about their on-field product.

Lawrie and Alvarez just barely missed the prospect cutoff.
Put those 2 down in the teams top 10 and we would be ranked #1

LOL Ricky and Bautista feeling a bit sea sick. I was in the Dominican two years ago and I puked my guts out from sea sickness, worst feeling of my life.
