Sickels:  Toronto Blue Jays Top 20 Prospects for 2012

What can you say? This system has incredible depth, and a year from now it could look even better, depending on how Nicolino, Norris, and Syndergaard perform in full-season ball, not to mention hitters like Smith and Dean who are just getting started. Sanchez and Woj have the natural ability to zoom up the list as well.

Many of the C+ guys (and even some of the Cs) have B or even A-level physical ceilings but need to play and get some experience in, particularly pitchers like Carmona and Osuna.

Overall, I think this list speaks for itself. There is upside with guys who could be stars, there are solid future role players, there are arms, there are bats, there is power, there is speed, there is defense. It will be interesting to see if the Blue Jays are able to keep the talent spigot on full blast under the new CBA

25 players in the top 20? I'll take it.

2nd funnest time to be a Jays fan in my lifetime. I almost hope I get stuck in a Groundhog Day situation this winter so I can just live in this anticipation and not suffer through the heart-break 2012-2015 is sure to be!

As an occasional poster and Jays fan, who is unable to add anything of substance to most conversations, I present the following:

Geez, you don't have to call 'em like you see 'em...

...oh, you were talking about you.

I saw Syndeegard pitch for the Canadians this year. He was dominating, I'd never seen a pitcher at that level overpower hitters like he did. I was strongly thinking about taking him with the last pick in my keeper league draft but I took a flier on Lucas Giolito instead. I might regret that.

That's an awesome list.

Nestor Molina for Sergio Santos trade apparently.
