I wish to hell I'd never said "Winning isn't everything it's the only thing". What I believe is, if you go out on a football field, or any endeavour in life, and you leave every fibre of what you have on the field, then you've won.

A good read on the depth in the Jays farm system:

https://www.tsn.ca/scott-mitchell-nate-pearson-tops-toronto-blue-jays-top-50-prospects-list-1.1428288

Nice to see Kay and Woods Richardson ranked that high.

Here's one on Pearson:

If Pearson arrives some time this year and Ryu pitches well, that could be a very strong top 2.

Jays have signed Joe Panik to a minor league deal.

BA released their new top 100.

Pearson 7
Groshans 29
Woods Richardson 61

With Woods Richardson ranked there and Kay appearing to be in the mix for a rotation spot this season, the return on Stroman is looking good.

Fangraphs put out their top prospects list and the Jays have 4 guys in the top 100. Pearson is at #8, Simeon-Richardson at #76, Groshans at #80 and Orelvis Martinez at #89.

Sounds like a strange situation for the kid, I hope there is some kind of explanation that makes sense but I am not that hopeful. I guess he will be playing for Houston soon.

The report is he was masterbating in his car watching porn on his phone with no pants on. The police asked him why he was doing this in the parking lot of a strip mall when he lived a few blocks away.  Too bad I thought he was better than Jannsen but looks like he will be done as a Jay.

He's either a)  Stupid.
                b)   Took something that interfered with his mental clarity.
               *c)    A reckless idiot.

*I'm thinking this one is more like it.

No excuses for him.  If he will be done as a Jay, good riddance.  I've lost respect for such a person.  He obviously had brain enough to think but elected to be careless & irresponsible.  And in a public place with females around.

Sadly, it seems as though Tony Fernandez has passed away.

Ugh one of my favorite Jays of all time. Sad news. Rest in peace Tony.

Tony will always be my favorite Blue Jay,  I loved the guy.  His gangly style at the plate, reminded me of a Praying Mantis, I always called him the "Insect Man" because of it.  In an affectionate way of course. 
Had three friends pass this week all within 24 hours, this feels like the 4th.   Way to young.
