While we're still more than a month away from seeing MiLB teams begin to announce the rosters, the Toronto Blue Jays have some conundrums coming up that are worth a closer than usual examination. Typically, a fan with some basic knowledge of their favorite team's system can offer up a fair estimation of where the 120ish players who'll make the roster of the system's four full season teams will land. If you can read the player's previous track record, are aware of who's left the system (and joined it) and have paid attention to the prospect discussions you could probably guess right on around 80% of assignments. Typically the only mildly difficult part is guessing which of the short-season guys from last summer do well enough in the spring to break camp on a full-season team. Not, of course, that the average fan is as compulsive about such things as some others (like, oh, i dunno, this writer maybe).
Blue Jays fans, meanwhile, can look forward to the system generating so many good players they don't have room for all of them.
