The Jays's Top 15 Prospects for 2013, according to Fangraphs: http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/index.php/toronto-blue-jays-top-15-prospects-updated/
Most of the pitching is a ways away...not that...
Guthrie doesn't do much for me. Although Fangraphs crowd-sourced contract projections have Guthrie at 2/$12. I could handle that. Although I think they're too low. For instance, they have Edwin...
I agree. THere are concerns, but the Twins could do much worse.
Hellickson was a strikeout pitcher in the minors, so maybe there's a chance he'll trend upward.
That said, given the...
If doing so nets them a young, cheap starter to upgrade the rotation now? Absolutely.
Although the "get a replacement RH bat" brings back uncomfortable memories of the logic that led to the Delmon...

I'm sure it's mostly injuries, but I also think the move to TF has really been difficult on him.
I don't know if he's at the end or not, but even at the height of his powers he was U-G-L-Y to...

Always fun to hear about young talent coming in.
Although it'd be nice if one of these times they'd target a young shortstop or two who actually might stick at the position. Cuddyer, Plouffe,...

I think Gould's the prospect that was going to go in the nixed Carlos Lee deal. FWIW.
