Today is draft day. The Jays pick at number twelve in the first round. In some years the Jays would have a clear picture as to who would be available at this stage of the draft. But this year it seems there are at least six and maybe more names associated with the Jays. Talk amongst yourselves about who the Jays could pick.

Buffalo, New Hampshire and Lansing all went to extra innings. It worked for Buffalo and Lansing but not for New Hampshire. With the new "runner on second" rule, none of these extra inning games went long and indeed there have been few long games this season.

Sean Reid Foley learned today that AAA hitters can take care of business if you can't hit your spots. He gave up eight runs in 2.1 innings. Buffalo lost but does scoring seven runs in the last four innings give them some hope? New Hampshire got home runs from Bo Bichette and Vlad Jr. but still lost. Randy Pondler came out of the woodwork to get the win for Dunedin. Lansing scored three in the ninth to come from behind and win.

Baseball insiders say it is good for a player to have some adversity before they reach the major leagues. Players in the majors will struggle at some point and if you had gone through it before you reach the majors it leaves you more prepared to handle it. Bo Bichette is gaining experience at the moment. Bo was 0-4 on Wednesday and is now hitting around .200 for May. Pitchers have adjusted to Bo and now he needs to adjust too. His strikeout rate is 20% and he is walking, just running into some challenges getting hits. Cavan Biggio and Vlad picked up the slack and New Hampshire continued on their winning ways. Ryan Borucki pitched well but had some umpire trouble, the Bisons lost. Dunedin lost in extras while the Lansing hitters not named Kevin Smith were quiet. That left Zach Logue the loser after his best start as a pro.

We have a pretty good minor league system. Three of our four full season minor league teams are playing .500 baseball or better, we have arguably the best prospect in baseball, and most of our top prospects are playing at our AA or AAA affiliates. I'd like to see a bit more pitching in the system and high-end tools, but it's awfully difficult to be picky given the challenges of our big club. Hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend.
