  1. Mike,

    I assume you’re talking about Miller and Maybin specifically? I know they are the most valuable minor leaguers at the moment, and I share in your frustration, but otherwise I haven’t had a big problem with the handling of other prospects. Except maybe De La Cruz who they can’t decide if he’s a starter or reliever.

    They’ve taken a nice approach with Jurrjens. They were right to skip Hollimon a level. Placing Worth at Lakeland seemed aggressive, but he responded well.

    They did fine with Verlander, Zumaya, and Granderson as well.

  2. I don’t disagree with testing young talent when the trade market isn’t brimming with options.

    Miller and Maybin are not worse for wear.
