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.
though they're asking for too many years, i'd still try to sign Soria or O'Day... even with KRod, DET's bullpen
Kaline fan I'd say Big Al & Tigers doing pretty good so far. Just the fact that they dumped "Gas Can" Krol
Tony de Florida I agree, and there may be some upside. It would appear our coaching staff needs to work on cutting down
jud Krol and Spier are basically worth a box of rocks trade value wise , so getting Mabin is ok with
