    For anyone interested in the thoughts of Blue Jays fans, I've found the comments to this article pretty fun.

    No real disagreement, just my opinion... Martin #1, but I still like Balazovic as #2. Miranda is #5 for me - he's absolutely demolished high-minor pitching for months.

    We added three very good pithing prospects this week and we are not done yet.  We are deep in SP prospects and lean in SS/CF prospects.  It is no surprise a guy who could play both SS and CF was part of the package the accepted.

    No, but there are economic realities that all but a handful of teams must confront. I don’t know why you’d expect the Twins to suddenly start spending at the top of the league. (This is all I’ll say on the matter, because it comes up literally every week in this website. It’s tedious, and no one has anything new or constructive to add.)

    There is 0 chance Lewis, who posted an 88 wRC+ in AA in 2019 and will turn 23 next year, will get busted down to A+, unless he is still recovering from an injury.  Especially since in his last taste of organized ball, he slashed .353/.411/.565 in the AFL after the 2019 season.

    If you had told me SWR, Groshans and a lottery ticket I would've been happy. Martin is a huge get.

    I think Martin is the sure* thing here, and the pitcher is riskier for sure.......Do they need pitching? Yes. But they also need hitters and fielders. 
    *no player is a sure thing....

    It will be interesting to see the prospect rankings and write ups when all is said and done. Come on, @Seth Stohs, get cranking!

    Given FG and mlb.com have Martin in their top 25 overall, I think you are low on him. This is his first year in professional baseball, and he's hitting well (not great) in AA, and playing both SS and CF.......

    Simon-Richardson was one of the big pieces in the Mets Stroman trade a couple years ago. 4 pitch pitcher. Fastball, chaneup, curve and slider. Seems like he ran into pretty massive, and unexpected, control problems this year, but he's a 20 year old pitching at AA after the lost 2020 season.
    A very nice write up on Simon-Richardson https://jaysjournal.com/2020/02/15/blue-jays-2020-top-prospects-4-simeon-woods-richardson/

    It would not surprise me one bit if both Shoemaker and Happ are effective pitchers for another team next season.

    I have watched 7 or 8 games now but he has been at 1st for half the games.  He looked good at 3B in the limited number of plays I have seen but you make a good point.  He is going to rank quite a bit higher if he projects to stick at 3B although I don't mind the flexibility of him being able to play 3 infield positions.

    The team scoring 14 runs after falling behind 10-0 shows that the team hasn't quit, at least from an offensive perspective. This is an abysmal pitching staff. At this point it seems like pick your poison and the question becomes less, "which guy gets us out of this jam" and more "which guy would you like to give up three runs in an inning today?"

    I'd say just the opposite about the hitters. They came back from 10-0 to make it 10-6. They scored 6 in the 8th to come back to a 13-12 game. They scored 2 more in the 9th. The hitters never quit the game. They also came back in a few other games in the past week.
