Blue Jays Future Stars Kevin Smith?

SDS

What an absolutely strange choice they made to make him the future star.

This guy had a big 2018 (which was a surprise for a 4th round pick with little hype), and a dreadful 2019.

He is ranked between 15th and 25th best prospect in the Jays system (a system in the top 10 in MLB even after graduating Vlad, Bo, and Biggio).
Even after his great 2018 season, he was ranked between 5-12 on most lists.

Why choose this guy??
You could have chosen Groshans (an actual top 100 guy with tons of hype!
Or Simeon Woods Richardson or Alek Manoah.. tons of options better than this..
Why not a useable Bo or Biggio?

Even the guy who revealed him would be better. Anthony Kay..

On top of that, he only got a 90 rating.. worst by far of all Future Stars I've seen so far.
Just as Vlad was also the lowest rated FotF too. Jays are getting hosed badly in Affinity..

SDS

Agree with you. Pathetic.

SDS

This is what happens when you throw a dart at a list and go with the name you hit. RNG in real life.

SDS

Yeah! And Tusk was just mediocre AT BEST!

SDS

Yep, the direction they chose to take the FS is just flat out bizarre. Really makes zero sense when you think about it

It truly is. At least pick prospects that will be future stars.. why not make a useable Bo Bichette or at the least Cavan Biggio.

I mean, Bo Bichette.. he's a 75 in DD.. 75... Unusable... Dude is one of the brightest future stars there is. He's also featured in their players league and killing it. 22 years old. Younger than Kevin Smith lol..
Why not give him a 95. The same rating they gave Nick Madrigal!!! A totally inferior player and always will be!!

I usually defend SDS.. but these choices in content are beyond bad

SDS

It’s true, Bo got disrespected. Compare Gavin Lux’s card. Don’t get me wrong, I’m stoked for Gavin too, but I don’t get it.

Kevin Smith is a future Hall of Fame.

Kevin Smith is a future grocery store clerk and alcoholic for having too high expectations put on him by this

SDS

I really wanted a Cavan Biggio. Idk why they didn't go with second year players. Same for Cardinals, I would have loved to see Tommy Edman.
I'm not saying I hate the Nolan Gorman, and I'll definitely use him + I realize not every team has usable second year players that could be made into a card... but still

SDS

Maybe they wanted a mix of positions and needed another shortstop? I dunno.

But he was really good in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

Kevin Smith had a decent 2018 playing in both high A and A ball. His 2018 wasn't even anything special either. If I remember correctly, he had like three weeks in a row where he was on pipeline's prospect of the week team, or whatever it's called. I'm as big of a Kevin Smith fan as anybody (not saying much) and I think that there is decent chance he never cracks a major league roster.

Yup. He's never even been a top 5 org prospect.

Jordan Groshans would have been the perfect choice here. He's the only position prospect worthy of one now that the big 3 have graduated. He has a legit shot at the majors and moving Vladito over to 1B

Thats really disappointing. So many bright stars to pick from and they pick a completely average and underwhelming guy that gets no one excited and on top of it hes rated higher then vlad? This stage 2 has been disappointing, i wish it was more 2nd year guys across the board. Bo should have been pick 100%.

Yup!! Bo seems like a no brainer.. I suppose if they're saving him for something bigger, then Cavan Biggio would have made a ton of sense...

The funniest thing about it is SDS got a more legit prospect (Anthony Kay) to announce Kevin Smith on twitter.. like wtf.. total fail

Even conine would have been better. Probably 15 guys ahead of smith in the organization

About 22 actually!! You can almost field a full team of prospects better rated than Smith...

I want to know how Anthony Kay felt when they asked him to reveal Smith.
