Toronto Blue Jays Organization Discussion

Toronto Blue Jays GM Alex Anthopoulos - Tom Szczerbowski-US PRESSWIRE

I am currently working on the Chicago Cubs prospect list. The next team in line is the Toronto Blue Jays, to be followed by the Miami Marlins, Houston Astros, Cleveland Indians, and New York Mets.

Use this thread to discuss the Blue Jays system. The Jays have been very active of late, making a big trade with the Houston Astros this past summer, then shipping off several of their top prospects to the Marlins earlier this month in an attempt to make a major league run for 2013. They remain very aggressive in the draft, focusing on high-risk, high-cost, high-upside talent. This sort of approach can pay great dividends, though there's always a risk that you can end up with a farm system filled with athletes who can't actually play baseball very well. They remain quite active on the international front with continued investments in Latin America.

Some points for community discussion:

**How much does the trade with the Marlins hurt system depth? Who is the best of the prospects that were shipped to Miami?
**Do you think the trade will work for 2013? How many games will the Jays win this year?
**What do you see as the strengths and weaknesses of the farm system? Is this system overrated? Underrated?
**As always, feel free to make a case for sleeper prospects that you like.
