  1. That's right. Faedo was ranked 15. Gerber is the oddest rank on this list. I hope he's awesome.
  2. I posted this in another thread but probably more appropriate here.

    Castro was 11. Peterson does not seem like much.

    They had Clemens ranked 31 out of the 33 prospects they ranked w/in the org. They have him a future value of 35+, so clearly not believers. Parker Meadows was 18.

    Justin Verlander Traded to Astros

    That's my thought, tho did not consider the Mize bonus. Wealthy teams that went after pitching in the offseason were unusually stingy,... The Stros got Cole for very little and the Yankees offered even less, for example. Plus most big budget contenders were trying to protect themselves from luxury tax, so unless Ilitch was willing to eat a lot more loot, I think the pool would have remained relatively limited.

    Do folks here think we would have done much better holding onto JV through last season and then trying to trade him in the offseason or this past July? Would the Astros have been willing to part with Tucker or Whitley as the headliner after seeing another month or five of JV dominance? Maybe, but probably not with Daz. So maybe it's Tucker or Whitley and Jake Rogers?

    I'm not convinced the Tigers will play that game. They could have done that with Jeimer last year and chose not to. If Daz is playing really well in AAA, I could see a promotion by midseason.

    Pipeline Rankings look very off right now. Paredes feels closer to 3 than 13, for example But Peterson is a nice flier to grab and is another OFer into the Toledo-Detroit mix that is pretty heavy, as of now... Castellanos, Mahtook, Jones, Stewart, Reyes, Daz, Robson, Gerber and now Peterson.
