Rays Index Trade Value Index

Cork Gaines over at RaysIndex has just published his 2010 Tampa Bay Rays Trade Value Index. It amounts to a very interesting methodology for rank ordering players in the Rays system, primarily players on the 40-man roster, but he plugs in a few deeper prospects as well.

Seven current Bulls are on the list: Jeremy Hellickson (2), Desmond Jennings (9), Jose Lobaton (24), Mike Ekstrom (29), Fernando Perez (33), Justin Ruggiano (34), and Dale Thayer (36).

I don’t consider myself enough of a Rays fan to ponder the deeper implications of this list, except perhaps to notice that a couple of very high quality ball players we Bulls fans know well are not on the list — that is, most of the seventeen other players on the Bulls roster.

More evidence, if readers needed any, that I don’t have much of a grip on the business of baseball.
