While it was fairly obvious in the recent days that he was not going to land here I find it interesting though as to how little Detroit ended giving up for him. While I won't pretend to know either of the pitchers given up the quote that struck me from the SI article follows:
"French and Robles were not among the top 10 prospects in the Tigers' organization entering this season, according to Baseball America."
While I am not upset at all that we will be staying pat (though I would've liked to see Hardy go to bring up Escobar) couldn't we have given something comparable?
(I figure most people will respond with the fact that we don't have young pitching to offer and that's what everyone wants)
