Baseball America just released the Top 100 list and Vlad is #2 (previously #16). He's going to be a monster

I wouldn't say it's to be expected, but at the same time, I am not surprised that he's this good. Where his dad, swung at almost everything, albeit very successfully at hitting pitches outside of the strike zone, his kid, has a much better eye for the ball, but equally same kind of upside in power.

In other news, I am waiting for the damn Mets to give in and bring up Amed Rosario - need to pick up a sleeper for my pool. The guy is just bored down there and is at least better, both at the plate and on defense, than Jose Reyes and Asdrubal Cabrera. Yet despite one injury after another, and after another, they refuse to bring him up.

4 prospects in the top 100. Who knows how many we'll have on August 1 2017. My guess is 9!

Game over already and it is only the 2nd inning.

Mike Bolsinger, more like Bowelslinger is warming up.

Hindsight is 20 20 but it now looks like the wrong decision to get Sanchez a start before the All Star break

I'm not trying to make excuses for Sanchez, but there were many really good pitches that were called balls.

But my main point is why the hell does Gibbons choose Sanchez to give Montero the game to catch. It's Sanchez's first game back, give him Martin, someone he's familiar with and someone that knows Aaron's stuff.

Assuming 90 wins get you into the playoffs, the Jays need to go 50-26 (.657) ball to reach 90 wins. If 88 wins is the bare minimum to possibly force a one game tie breaker for the final wild card spot, the jays need to go 48-28 (.638).
In 2015 the bluejays went 37-13 in 50 games around the same time of the year so here's hoping they can tap into some of that mojo to really get back into this thing.

I guarantee that this year's BJs will not make the post season.

I agree, I don't think the Jays will make the post season. Far too inconsistent in wins.

There needs to be a mercy rule in baseball. These 15-0 games are just pointless for anybody to watch.

You are right! And on top of that, the home team should hand out free food/drink vouchers, 50% off coupons for merchandise and free tickets to another game. Seriously ticket and parking prices being what they are, I'd be pretty pissed off if I paid to watch this debacle.

Montero is this year's Melvin Upton. Attitude issue and can't catch, can't throw out runners and can't hit here either.

How can Joe Biagini be a major league pitcher? The dude stinks as a starter and is even worse as a reliever. This guy looks like an employee from your local Taco Bell. This team stinks.
