do you guys think that verlander will always be this good? like what kind of numbers do you see him putting up in 5 years? like i think verlander is great, but i do question his workload in his first major league season.

Verlander

I think Verlander should be great in the next few years to come. That’s just my opinion, he’s still young and I'm an owner of him in my keeper league however I hope in a few years he isn’t pitching like Beckett is right now. When Beckett was a rookie everyone said how good he was and with no blisters this season he’s pitching bad. (Bad comparison) However I think Verlander should be great.

He will not end up like Beckett, but Beckett is still a pretty good pitcher...

Good trade, I would also trade move Butler for Verlander, but I don't think it's a huge steal.


I tend to agree with you. While I would also probably make this move, it definitely isn't a steal IMO and Butler could certainly end up having a better career than Verlander.

Butler is raking as a 20 year old in AA, and that just doesn't happen very often. He is an extremely polished hitter, hits for both average and power, has a great contact rate, and really doesn't look to have any weaknesses at the plate.

I am always a little bit more cautious about pitchers in fantasy baseball than I am with hitters, so that could contribute to my opinion. Even though Verlander has had a solid year, I still can't get TINSTAAPP out of my head.
