David Cooper is good enough to play in the MLB, or atleast he's proven that at the minor league level. Moises Sierra is hugely under rated and has no MLB starts list in his future. Travis Snider will make it to the MLB but he is literally taring up the minors but JAYS can afford to keep him there longer. Drew Hutchison will be sent down as soon as McGowan is ready. Chad Jenkins, Chad Beck, Deck McGuire and rest of the star studed pitchers have an uphill battle, while in any other system, they'd be getting MLB experience.
Would you really want to be a minor league player in this system?
Yes, because that would mean once I was ready to be called up, I would be winning, not losing. We are just at the end of "talent acquisition" mode and before the beginning of "condensing talent" mode. 2012 is a year just for us to give those players who need another year in the system another year (Hutch, Gose, Snider, D'Arnaud) and find out what we have in the MLB (If Lind can be a big league 1B, or if Colby can perform like he did in 2010 etc.)
We are just in between modes at the moment. We will start seeing more trades with blocked players shortly.
