Is Verlander for real?

Pick him up! As good stuff as anybody in the majors right now. Good mound presence as well. I think he'll do very well.

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position

17 straight scoreless is nothing to laugh at, even against two AAAA teams.



On a side note, Yoda, you should add a "DL trips" catagory to your Cole Hamles watch. :-D

Honestly, if you are in a redraft league, you should be selling him high. His schedule is getting tougher and durability is a serious question mark.

agreed, but he has as high a ceiling as anybody not named Felix in a dynasty or keeper.

Agreed. Verlander is an incredible talent, but most rookie SP #'s at years end look terrible.
