Verlander traded to Houston (trade went thru)

Nice haul. Will really miss JV.

Perez, Cameron, and Rodgers in return.

Stros took on almost all of his contract. We shaved $160 Million in payroll today.

So with Sanchez hopefully released what's the rotation going to look like in 2018? It's going to be really really bad. This deal sucks.

Were you hoping to get an MLB ready starter in return?

Fair enough. The wording made me assume otherwise.

I don't know much about the prospects, I really try to avoid the rankings. I could probably find sources that list that same prospect as somewhere in the top 30. Subjective stuff. Hopefully they pan out and JV gets his ring.

I hope so too.. I'm not a big fan of free agency / trade deadline. It would have been nice to have JV for the duration. It's been a long time since a player was drafted and retired a Detroit Tiger. I wanted to see him get more records in a Tigers' uniform.
