The Blue Jays had a couple big pieces to their future on display in the Futures Game. Both Vladimir Guerrero and Bo Bichette represented the Blue Jays organization in the showcase of tomorrow’s big league stars.

I figured since it’s the All-Star break, maybe it would be fun to take a break from the 2017 season for a moment. The Futures Game took place on Sunday evening, and the Blue Jays had Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Bo Bichette participating in the game, giving fans plenty to dream about regarding the future.

Not every prospect pans out, as we’ve seen time and time again over the years. However, the Blue Jays have a lot of young talent, and also a lot of aging veterans on the roster. When we’re talking 3-4 years from now, the lineup is going to look a lot different, whether we like to admit it or not. Jose Bautista would be in his 40’s by then, Russell Martin’s contract will have expired, as will Justin Smoak’s and Kendrys Morales’. The team will look a lot different, which happens. The good news is, the Blue Jays have plenty to be excited about in their minor league system.

With that in mind, here is my prediction of what the lineup looks like in 2020, and keep in mind that this is based purely on my own speculation.

Call me an idiot if you want, but this is all in good fun, so feel free to leave your changes in the comments section below if you like.
