I just found this little gem and thought it deserved some more discussion in regards to the recent spat of trade arroyo/harang for prospects. I must say for the timeframe he had a couple of "misses" but overall I like the list.
Out of our top 40 I only see a handful that are playing either for our club or any other major league team for that matter. I just find it hard to trade away a franchise for a couple million dollars worth of lottery tickets. It sounds like a sure thing except there are 10 million plus winning combos. We had a lot of discussion before but if I was the yankees I would jump all over an Arroyo or Harang for Hughes straight up deal or, being a reds fan, I would take a D. Willis for homer deal straight up. Major league skillsets are just that. Someone might have the basics of it but, until they decide to put everything together they do not make the big club.
Lets open up a new debate
