AA certainly does follow up on his word. He claimed he was interested in high-ceiling athletes. Claimed he wanted more speed and athleticism. He has made obvious steps in the past year regarding both. Keep it coming AA.

The Jays in their glory days in the 80s and early 90s just DOMINATED the scouting in the Dominican. I expect them to return to that kind of philosophy.
