Wanna place money on that De Leon statement? I'm not sure how we'd measure it, given the Twin will be in A and AA ball, and De Leon will be in AAA and the majors....and lose his prospect status.

What De Leon statement? Did I miss something in this thread?

In the article:

 

I fully believe he will be viewed as a better asset than Jose De Leon – the coveted prospect Minnesota passed up in Brian Dozier trade talks – a year from now.

I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?

Ahh, skimmed that.  Well, let's hope so.  I probably agree that Romero's upside is higher (I was pretty low on De Leon in the first place) but his floor is much, much lower.

Right, I don't doubt Romero has more upside, but I'd be shocked if De Leon isn't a number 4 for some time, if not better. His floor is, imo, super high.

 

Not to mention Romero uses his arm for most of the work, and that scares me some.
