Morning Prowl: Losers, Monsters, All-Invitees, and Andrew Miller

Newsday's Ken Davidoff has listed his Winners and Losers of the offseason, and has Detroit ranked second in the latter category. In his eyes, the Tigers "barely got up from their sofa."

ESPN.com's Matthew Berry thinks very highly of Miguel Cabrera as a fantasy baseball player, saying he's due for "a monster, monster year."

Scott Williamson, who pitched a scoreless inning yesterday, is on Jayson Stark's All-Invited to Spring Training Team.

Macay McBride is being held back from the throwing schedule the Tigers had him on, according to Jon Paul Morosi. Jim Leyland wants him to build up his stamina as a starting pitcher, but that would probably put McBride on track for the minors, and he's out of options.

Have you found yourself wondering how Andrew Miller is doing with the Florida Marlins? MLB.com's Joe Frisaro writes that the former Tiger is working on a more consistent delivery, one in which he doesn't throw across his body.

Over at FanGraphs, Eric Seidman has been evaluating past trades using Win Values. In a follow-up article, one of the deals he looks at is the infamous John Smoltz-for-Doyle Alexander trade.

If you needed a reminder about the selection order for the MLB Draft, Baseball America posted an updated list (factoring in the compensation picks for Juan Cruz and Orlando Cabrera). The Tigers have the ninth pick in the first round.
