Welcome to the Batter's Box Top 30 Blue Jay prospects for 2014. Five of your trusted minor league correspondents pooled their votes to come up with the list. The same trusty five shared the task of writing the prospect descriptions you see below. Come back tomorrow for numbers 20 through 11.

There is turnover from 2013. Marcus Stroman, Kevin Pillar and Ryan Goins have all graduated. Aaron Sanchez still qualifies as he was called up in mid-July, giving him less than 45 days service before September. Tom Robson, Clinton Hollon and Adonys Cardona were injured and didn't pitch enough to make it on this year's list. Kenny Wilson and Deck McGuire were traded. They make room for a new crop of exciting prospects who shot onto the scene in 2014, starting with a holdover at number 30.

The world Series started yesterday and the game did not live up to the standards of the previous rounds. In recent years the World Series has been less enthralling than the previous rounds, two of the last three series have been sweeps. The Giants get to pitch Madison Bumgarner twice against the Royals and that could give them an edge. The Royals do have a lot of left handed hitters and that works in favour of Bumngarner and the Giants.

The Royals face a must win game tonight with Yordano Ventura facing Jake Peavy.

Baseball is a funny game! R.A. Dickey and Miguel Gonzalez had given up a combined 50 home runs (25 apiece) heading into their final starts of the season. Instead of a home run derby and offensive fireworks, only one run was scored.

Dalton Pompey is greeted by first base coach Tim Leiper after a single to lead off the second inning. Pompey was later picked off at first.

With the amazing year we've seen in the Jays minors it got me to thinking about prospects and how the Jays ones have done and what is the best year we've ever seen.  Could we currently have the strongest farm in Jays history?  Doubtful, but lets do a check.
