1. Toronto Blue Jays
Last season, the Blue Jays dealt Roy Halladay away to Philadelphia for a trio of top prospects in Kyle Drabek, Travis d'Arnaud and Michael Taylor. Of that trio from the Halladay trade, Drabek and d'Arnaud remain while Taylor finds himself with the A's.
There are other key cogs in the Jays farm system, with OF Jake Marisnick, lefty pitcher Daniel Norris, and outfielder Anthony Gose all giving the Jays a healthy dose of fresh talent coming up in the coming years.
While playing in the AL East is tough, if you use the Jays farm system right you can probably compete with the Yankees and Red Sox within a couple of years as the Blue Jays head man.
