    Who are we going to miss the most 10 years from now?

    AA has traded away a lot of prospects or very young players in his last two big trades.

    Who do you think we will miss the most ten years from now?

    Don't get me wrong, I like a lot of the players we got back.

    Yes, I realized that I wrote Jason instead of Jake Marisnick.

    The smart money is on Marisnick or Nicolino since they're the highest touted.

    Man 10 years is a life time to me, I would think by then most of these guys will be on thier last leg or done. Whoever is the youngest, I guess.

    I don't know if we'll be talking about any of those guys 10 years down the line.

    I'd say marisnnick, but we have speed. So I'll vote hech. Any of those other guys would need a a breakout in talent if they're gonna become a nice piece on an MLB roster.

    Things will always work out in the end, but if you want them to turn out a certain way... You need to make it happen.

    I still think Henderson Alvarez will be an elite pitcher in the league. Especially if he can add an offspeed pitch

    I gotta go with Alvarez. With the velocity and movement he has on his fastball, I think he has the highest ceiling of everyone that we traded. He was rushed to the big leagues as soon as his velocity jumped up. He threw almost 190 innings this year at the age of 22, and with some better support could have won somewhere between 12- 15 games..with the amount of "quality starts" that he gave us.

    (NOTE: I don't call 6 innings and 3 ER's against a "quality start". If they only throw 6 innings, I only count it if they give up 2 runs or less. They need to throw 7+ innings for me to consider it a "quality start" if they give up 3 ER's)

    Alvarez in 2012 (at the age of 22) threw more innings (,had less walks) and was just as effective as Brandon Morrow in 2011 (at the age of 26). He was just a ground ball pitcher who pitched to contact and not a strikeout pitcher.

    I think at the very least Alvarez turns into a legit late inning reliever who can crank his sinker up into the high 90's for an inning and mix in an above average change piece. If he masters that breaking ball and stops hanging it so frequently though I see him becoming an above average starting pitcher who can eat a tonne of innings.

    Henderson Alvarez.
    I still feel he will be a 15 to 16 game winner and as he matures, there is no reason he can't hit the 17 to 18 win mark.

    However, I still rather have JJ the Alvarez - just hope we can get him signed to an extension.
