I know you can't scout the stat line, and I know that Vlad Guerrero Jr. is the better rated prospect, but Bo Bichette is putting together a great season. On Wednesday Lansing scored four runs, Bichette drove in three of them and scored the fourth. He reached base all four times he came to bat. There are some concerns regarding his swing but you have to admire the way he is playing. Between Vlad Jr., Anthony Alford, Bo Bichette and some of the pitchers, you could have quite the discussions at the end of this year as to who is the number one and number two prospect in the system.

There was lots of hitting on the farm Wednesday. The Jays four teams racked up 45 hits. Unfortunately their opponents also had 45. The Jays came out on the short end at 1-3.

The affiliates lost all three games on Sunday, and the bloom is off the winning rose. Some of the Jays pitchers were very hittable over the weekend. Matt Latos, Shane Dawson and Jon Harris in particular had to deal with lots of base runners. Some of the winning has come out of the system. Buffalo started hot but a lot of bad weather and double headers have slowed the winning. New Hampshire have a 12-24 record. Lansing lost both their weekend. Only Dunedin won.
