I didn't exclude any years, 1978 to 2008 were the year the Chiefs were the farm team. And in those 20 years, the running joke was how soon they'd be out of the playoff hunt because the Blue Jays never supplied them with the talent they needed to make the playoffs.


...it seems you forgot that players move up through the minor leagues? I mean, Toronto DID have a top notch farm system with a lot of promising young players before that blockbuster deal. They still have a chance to supply a pretty good team to Buffalo though. Even with the trade, they still have more AA/AAA talent than the Mets had.

I see this a win win. Great proximity, kind of like the Sabers/Amerks, hopefully attracting fans that can watch the players grow in the minors and continue on watching them in the bigs.

There are some good players playing there right now. Gose can be electric when on base, Lawrie and Reyes have both been their on short rehab assignments, Romero is starting to get back into form.
Now they get back The Japanese phenom that is Munenori KawaMascot!
