Could be better than all of them? Yes, but he hasn't worked well with the organization to get him to that point.

Bradley also has a very mean curveball as well and a more consistent delivery. He may not be ahead on the big prospect rankings yet, but he's getting there.
Archie Bradley has a FB that touches 100 and a devastating curveball. His biggest problem has been his command, which is Bauer's issue as well, only difference is Bradley is significantly younger than Bauer and will develop.

Bradley's stuff trumps Bauer's.

Bauer just wants to K people, no matter what the cost is. He's a 5 inning pitcher right now, he needs to learn to pitch to contact and attack hitters. Not throw 4 straight curveballs in the dirt with an 0-2 count.

Not sure how it would've affected the rankings, but Bill Center from the San Diego Tribune left Miley off of his ballot altogether and put in a third place vote for Yonder Alonso.

Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle, Jose Reyes, John Buck and Emilio Bonofacio

for

Yunel Escobar, Hech, Henderson Alvarez, Marisnick and Nicolino

I know Marlins ownership is a joke, but the return isn't too bad at all. They got some nice players in return and obviously shed massive salary...

Yeah I'm sure one foot is already out the door unless they just throw massive amounts of money at him, but given what's transpired over the course of the franchise's life then that's a longshot.

Disappointment is the wrong word, too. He said "Alright, I'm pissed off!!! Plain and simple."

Really I don't care what the return is. Loria sold plans for the stadium on a whole re-branding of the franchise. Changed the name, uniforms, spent some money and it lasted a whole half-season. I could justify the Hanley and Anibal trades because there was talent that came back and while talent may have come back in this deal its clearly not the intention of the franchise to put a winning product out.

They've traded their starting C, 2B, SS, 3B, CF, and starters #1-3 since the trade deadline.

As an Expos fan it doesn't surprise me that Loria remains one of the biggest scum bag in sports.
