Darren,

Actually, Nate Did Really Advise to Draft Elsewhere.

Vermilyea does seem worth a flier, however, although I like almost all of our internal candidates more. Toronto has 40-man issues, so maybe they'll be looking to pay off the Blue Jays for the ability to send him down later.

But what's the big value? It's even questionable whether he'll be worth keeping on the 40. I'm surprised no one took a flier on Fransisco.

That's [Francisco] who I really wanted too, Darren. They could, conceivably, buy Vermilyea from the Jays and then outright him to the minors, no? I know he'd be exposed and all, but I guess it's possible.

And how can you not comment on my beautiful work in Post #1, or did you not catch the obvious?

Nate, I'm surprised you didn't bring up Andrade.



(Let's see if anyone has their sarcasm radar on today.)

I'm no scout, but Vermilyea didn't seem like anything special in the several times I saw him pitch.

There was a tidbit in Rob Bradford's very mediocre book on the Sox and Jays that the Sox were disappointed that Tor took Vermilyea before the Sox could. They've at least been interested in him for awhile.
