Toronto Blue Jays – Draftboard Update – 18/09


No positional mano et mano with the O’s today, although my assertion that I’d take Colby Rasmus over Adam Jones next year did

cause a bit of a stir.  As a consolation, how about this?  Next year’s all-star centerfielders are Rasmus, Jones, and Trout….I’d take that.

Will attempt to do a similar exercise with the pitchers in time.  On to the board:

Not a lot of real change in terms of positions but last night was a good one for the Jays.  As they were blowing a three nothing lead against the Evil Empire, the Triple-M combination of the Mets, Mariners, and Milwaukee were all winning.  Add in the fact the Phils blew a lead against the Marlins and the Giants lost and it is getting very bunched up from seven through fourteen.

Should be an interesting last ten days.

    I have a question. Is the Jays no. 11 pick a protected pick since it was last year? Or does it not fall under the same rules? I know with the Mets last year, trying to sign Bourn but didn’t want to surrender their No.11 pick (due to an unsigned pick the year before, the Mets were bumped from No. 10). So if the Mets got bumped because of an unsigned pick, shouldn’t the Jays no.11 pick be unprotected?

      From my at time shoddy understanding of the CBA, if a team fails to sign it’s first round pick it becomes protected next year. The first ten selections are protected so because Pittsburgh’s pick for not signing Appel was in the top 10 the Mets were bumped to 11 meaning their pick was not protected since it wasn’t a top 10 pick. Toronto’s situation is different because their pick is protected regardless of whether or not it’s in the top 10 since they didn’t sign Bickford.

        That was both my hope and my understanding. I get the feeling the Mets wont be too happy about that though. Thanks
