Toronto Blue Jays Top Prospects: Mid Tier Love Part 2

Where's my glove? (image courtesy of Charlie Caskey)

Where Will the Blue Jays Reap Value?

Ya, he knew

Similar to 2011 when a certain hockey goalie on the West Coast ‘pumped the tires’ of one that played on the Eastern side of this great continent, I’m going to spend a good chunk of this piece extolling the virtues of a blogger that resides three time zones away.
