Let's dig into some projection systems for this team as we near the end of winter. I figure it is about time as the team is unlikely to change much now. I figure this is the best way to cause a trade/free agent signing to happen. Putting this together now when all seems quiet.

Welcome to the Blue Jays top 30 list for another year. It was a quiet year on the farm which is not always a good thing. Among the prospects, just one member of last year's top 30 was traded, that being Sem Robberse. Just one graduated, Davis Schneider. That leaves 28 players from last year's list and 18 of them are repeating on this list, which leaves room for twelve new prospects. As usual, there is always significant debate around the names on this list. While most of the top 20 would be on every top 30 list, there are a host of candidates for the bottom part of the list.

Whoa. New thread is required.

I haven't really been paying attention. (It's December, folks.) Anything interesting going on?

The winter meetings have started. There are a few official meetings but many one on one meetings between teams and between teams and agents. There are few very good free agent hitters so will trades be a bigger part of the meetings than in the past?
