I think I'd put Tork first just cause there is obviously less risk with a hitter than a pitcher, plus I think his floor is really high.  I think at worst he is an .800-.850 OPS 1B/DH, like a CJ Cron, which sounds bad but as a floor that is pretty damn good.     

My top 5 would be Tork, Mize, Manning, Skubal, Greene.

So this is the dream as of right now ehh? (My confidence level on a scale of 1-10 in parenthesis)  2023 Lineup:

Tork - 1B (10) 
Clemens - 2B (5)
Workman - SS (6)
Peredes - 3B (7)
D. Cabrera - LF (7)
Jacoby Jones - CF (3)
Greene - RF (8)
Dingler - C (7)

 

Bench
Quintana (3)
Rogers (3)
Meadows (5)
Someone else (10)

 

Not sure that screams playoffs...... Thoughts on that?

I’d put Cameron ahead of Jones in CF.  Goodrum will also likely still be a good super-utility guy on the bench.

I also suspect we‘ll add guys at positions of need, i.e., SS.  I wouldn’t be surprised to see us go after Lindor or Correa in free agency.

That'd be a dream come true. I predicted that 3 years ago that the Tigers would go after Lindor (wishful thinking since I worked at his High School). But it really is looking like he'd hit Free Agency right when the Tigers would need him most. That'd be great. My wife would surely be pleased. 

 

Speaking of which. Justin Colon at Montverde Academy is a clone of Lindor. Keep your eyes on him for next year. I'd love the Tigers to look at him too.

At this point I'm going to be surprised if either Clemens or a 4th round pick will  be able to bump even Willi Castro out of the Tigers IF.

Miggy is still under contract in 2023 (last year).  Agreed on Cameron over Jones.  Reyes could be in the mix.  WCastro (or maybe Cruz) over Quintana, at least at this point.

Jones is one of those guys that even if he sticks now, because of his age is not going to have a very long career as a starting CF. Reyes is interesting. He's one guy the short or none season is going to hurt the most I think. He was nothing great but the hook with Reyes is that he steadily improved each month once he started playing last July and he needs to be playing now.  I really wanted to see what his next 500 AB were going to be.

Switch-hitting Cruz is intriguing. He could be the 2nd baseman

Reyes should have a long career as a 4th or 5th OF—can play all outfield positions, and could develop some pop.  His utter refusal to take a walk prevents him from being anything more than that.

Victor was walking at a 5% rate the last two months so he has come off of 'absolute refusal', that's why I want him to be playing, for instance to see if he can push that up. Heck, 8% is passable in the modern game.

I would have to bump Meadows to 8 but that's just me.

It's taken a few years of garbage baseball, but the farm is definitely looking good right now. Let's hope they can develop some of these guys and no major injuries knock them out. Did I just jinx them?

We should be a top 5 team again in next year’s draft, hopefully for the last time. Should yield at least one, hopefully two or three integral pieces of our next good team

I agree with most of this but if Faedo isn't atleast in the majors as a reliever by 2022 I think that would basically make him a non prospect and not worthy of being in the top 10.  He'd be 27 by the end of the year so if he hadn't made it to the show by that point then chances are he either isn't going to make it at all or is just going to be a AAAA type guy.
