Keith Law Ranks Jays Minor League System Third

Keith Law will name the Toronto Blue Jays farm system number three in baseball tomorrow when ESPN.com rolls out its Annual Top 100 prospects.  The Jays were behind only the San Diego Padres (#1) and Tampa Bay Rays (#2).  I can see San Diego being number one with an extremely deep collection of arms currently in their system but outside of super prospect Matt Moore I just don’t see the Tampa Bay system being better or more complete than the Jays at this point.

I think Keith Law is being contrarian a bit to the recently released John Sickels list which had Toronto slotted in at number one – the prospect evaluators can’t all agree right?

The top 100 prospect list is also released and expect the Jays to be all over this list, I would expect as many as six and perhaps seven Blue Jays to be on this list. 

An interesting quote from Keith Law during a recent “Klaw chat” about the common misconception that the Jays are “cheap”:

One of the many reasons criticism of Rogers Communications, the owner of the Blue Jays, for being stingy with free agents is so ignorant is that the club has spent aggressively in the amateur markets during the past three years, grabbing high-ceiling high school players and Latin American prospects by stockpiling picks and paying whatever it took to sign those players.”
