BA ranks the Yankees top prospects. For those still wringing their hands about the Sheffield trade, none of the players the Tigers sent (Sanchez, Claggett, Whelan) made the top 10 or were even discussed in the chat. Claggett was recognized for having the best slider in their system though.
The Tigers have talked with Brandon Lyon's agent. I like it, not as in handing him the closer's job, but as in adding a bullpen arm for under $4 million. Lyon has a low K-rate but a very low walk rate as well. He was hurt by a very high BABIP last year that resulted in probably 15 more hits than would have been expected.
Ilian Georgiev Thanks for sharing score board for 9th innings i have missed this match !
Vince in MN Yup, they definitely won't be running away with it like the last couple of years.
StorminNorman$ ...for the record, and if DD would have checked with me - I'd have signed Melky Cabrera and hung on
The approx. 75-80 games against AL Central teams will be more difficult for DET this year...as opposed to the past
Vince in MN Don Kelly is available, and he can pitch relief too.
