The Fisher Cats look to have a pretty good team too, with good pitching. I like that the Blue Jays have separated our two Jacksons. I might be able to keep them straight this way. Kevin Smith starts the season here as well. If I was Smith I’d change my last name to Molitor, might as well be like all the other prospects.

We are learning the opening rosters of the Blue Jays four full season minor league teams today.

Let’s start with the Bisons. It looks like they will have a pretty good team this year. I’d imagine that Vladimir Guerrero (among others) will be on their IL list to start the season. Andy Burns is back from a season in the Korean League where he hit .303/.361/.499.
