Sure. Bring back Valverde. Are you serious? We have one of the best teams in baseball and we are going to hand over the closers job to him again? No thanks.
And what is the first round pick ? Are we guaranteed he makes it to the majors ? Are we guranteed he is worth losing out on a bonafied closer ? Just how many of these so called 1st round picks have been worth waiting for? Yes I would give up that pick if it meant winning a WS. by no means does signing Soriano gurantee us the title. But we have a hell of a lot better chance with him than without. Or with your idea of bringing back Mr. Heart Attack. You don't hang your season on a prospect. Not when we are this close to a title. I've been a Tiger fan a very long time. I can honestly say this is the best assembled team I have ever seen. A tweak in the bullpen. A couple of good bench guys and a solid lock down closer and they can start printing the WS tickets.
Screw Valverde. That train left the station .
