MLB Tonight panel expert and former major leaguer Sean Casey was asleep at the wheel when discussing the Toronto Blue Jays farm system and what the Jays should do with Josh Donaldson.

Sean Casey might want to familiarize himself with Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Bo Bichette before he sounds off again that the “Blue Jays have nothing in the minor leagues” and that trading Josh Donaldson will afford them the opportunity to replenish their farm system.

Casey spewed the same old tiresome verbiage about how Alex Anthopoulos emptied the prospect cupboard for the playoff push in 2015. News flash Mr. Casey, the Toronto Blue Jays farm system is alive and well even beyond the dynamic duo of Vladdy and Bo.

Have a listen to the full clip below:

I understand that the Blue Jays sometimes fall in the pecking order south of the border and would even afford Casey a mulligan on some of the lesser named prospects in the Jays farm system. However, it is unfathomable to me how he can attempt to quantify that the Jays have nothing in their farm system. He obviously is very ignorant about the Jays system and needs to do his homework before making such outlandish statements.

Aside from Vladdy and Bo, the likes of Anthony Alford, Nate Pearson, T.J. Zeuch, Ryan Borucki, Lourdes Gurriel Jr. and Logan Warmoth all loom large as very talented pieces.

I get it, if you want to trade Donaldson sooner than later to get a better return than at the trade deadline, fill your boots, we are all entitled to our opinion, but don’t have the audacity to say the Jays should trade him to recoup some of the prospect capital lost from the previous general managers attempt to bring a winner north of the border.

This is not 2015 anymore Sean, the landscape of the Jays farm system has changed drastically in the last three years and you should know better.
