The Toronto Blue Jays are not projected to finish anywhere near the top of the American League East in 2019, however, don’t tell that to Vladimir Guerrero Jr.
The most anticipated prospect in recent memory has his goals set on vying for a championship in 2019 whenever the young slugger finally gets the call. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was recently interviewed during his time in the Arizona Fall League and had this to say about his expectations for the upcoming season.
"You have to wait your time. You have to wait your time, but if they give me the opportunity, I know I can contribute. I want the Blue Jays fans to keep supporting us. The next generation is coming soon. We are going to try and bring a championship to Toronto this season."
This next generation of talent has grown accustomed to winning at the minor league ranks and are not about to roll over and sail in the 2019 campaign. These uber talents are chomping at the bit for the opportunity to prove to the world they can be a force to be reckoned with on the big league stage.
