I agree, but I think Porcello was the Official "Steal of the Draft." He was probably Top 3-5 in Talent and fell to 27 to a team with an already solid rotation.
It could have been possible for Detroit to get both Porcello and Harvey, but I'm pretty sure there would have been some major retribution from the commish's office if they had. Detroit has been one of the worst abusers of the draft's slot/bonus structure the past few yrs and drafting Harvey too would have made a lot of people upset at them.
