Blue Jays Draft War Room

Figured I would post this as I watch the Jays-Padres late game, to give anyone that wants to contribute some extra time! At 1:00PM EST tomorrow, we'll get going, and hopefully around 10 minutes...

Blue Jays MOD #3: 1st round wrap-up/2nd and 3rd targets

We had some really good discussion in MOD #2, and I think we've narrowed our scope for the first round pick. I've included a poll with the five names I think will be in the discussion to get a vote...

Blue Jays MOD #2

In our first MOD, we set the stage by talking about a few players in particular, but mostly setting a fairly simple strategy: we'll be looking for the best player available in the first round,...

Blue Jays MOD #1

This year’s draft will probably be a bit different for the Blue Jays than the last few years, for a few reasons: 1) The Jays don’t have any extra picks this year, so all we’ll have is a...

Toronto Blue Jays War Room

Welcome! Grab a seat around our mock boardroom table, it's time to fictionally add a crap load of talent to the Jays already pretty stocked farm system. The strategy seems certainly to be focusing...

Toronto Blue Jays MOD #6

I tried to put together a ranking of the college class to go with my ranking of the prep players (http://www.minorleagueball.com/2012/5/22/3037519/blue-jays-mod-5)... I could only get up to...

Blue Jays MOD #5

I put together a ranking of the top 50 prep players in the class. I'd like to do the same for the college class or maybe an overall ranking, time permitting, but I figured that for the Jays, the...

Blue Jays MOD #4

One week away for the Minor League Ball Community Mock Draft! It's time to start focusing in on rankings. Our strategy seems pretty clear - focus on upside in the prep ranks, with a preference to...

Toronto Blue Jays MOD #3

Judging from our last few MODs, it certainly seems like the focus among Jays fans is on adding high-upside offense to go with the tremendous pitching in the team's farm system. It sounds like that...

How the Angels landed Mike Trout

Really interesting piece on how the Angels landed Mike Trout in the 2009 draft that I think draft fans will love reading. Rosenthal notes that both the Angels and Yankees had Trout #2 overall on their boards - after Stephen Strasburg - which goes to show you how team's perceptions of players in the draft can be radically different than what we say. After reading this, I dug back into that 2009 draft, and found Keith Law's old mock draft. For the Yankees, he mentioned that he's not sure who it is, but that the Yankees were sitting back waiting for one particular player that they'd be willing to throw their checkbook at. In retrospect, that must have been Trout.

Minor League Ball Community Mock Draft - Jays

I'm going to be the "Scouting Director" for the Blue Jays in the Minor League Ball Community Mock Draft, scheduled for Saturday, May 26th at 1:00PM eastern. I opened up the "war room" in this link for some early strategy talk, and I'd love to get as much input from Jays fans as possible.

Minor League Ball Community Mock Draft - Houston Astros

Hey guys - Over at Minor League Ball, we're doing a community mock draft for the upcoming draft. Our mock draft will be held on Sat., June 4th and I'll be drafting for the Astros. Leading up to that, of course, I want the help and opinions of Astros fans! If you stop by this link, and the follow-ups to it over the next two and a half weeks, together we can put together a philosophy for the draft, and a list of players to target in the first three rounds (pick #11, #69 and #99).
