I don't expect much news until the season starts, which explains the lack of updates.  Casey Janssen's arbitration case should happen in the next few days if he doesn't agree to a contract with the team before then, and then you can expect a few minor league signings that don't turn in to anything.

Beyond that, I can give you one more list of top prospects, this time from MLB.com's Jonathan Mayo.  Unsurprisingly, Travis d'Arnaud, Anthony Gose, and Jake Marisnick round off the top three, though Mayo has projected ETA's for d'Arnaud and Gose set as 2013 and 2012, respectively.  I kind of think he's got those backwards, to be quite honest.

DJF's Stoeten compares Mayo's list with Kevin Goldstein's, Marc Hulet's, John Sickels', and Baseball America's.  He also states, quite correctly, I might add, that none of this really means a whole lot going forward, and that it's just fun to have a look at each system.

The Super Bowl happened the other day, which means that we're something like 10 days away from the day pitchers and catchers report for spring training.  Unrelated, but also really awesome, Mad Men returns for season 5 in something like 45 days.  Urge to kill... fading.

What's that?  You don't think playoff baseball is a crapshoot?  Think again!
P.S., for a team with 0 playoff appearances during this time-frame, to go along with a lot of 3rd and 4th place finishes, the Blue Jays are on that list an infuriating number of times.  Also, fuck you St. Louis.
