It is a very fair opinion, but remember that Verlander has only just recently made AA, and is about a year and a half younger. It's probably too soon for Verlander to have made the majors, but he's gotten a look twice so far.
Also, Verlander has a special desire to play this game. Best example being that he actually fired his agent so that he could sign with the Tigers in time and not have to re-enter the draft. He probably signed for a bit less than his agent was holding out for, but he chose to go another path and not put his pro career on delay.
Baker looks like he'll be a fine pitcher in this league, but don't count out Verlander yet.
