Basically who would you rather have in the system given the choice: Neal Cotts or Joe Valentine

I guess I'm being kinda biased here, since I know Cotts and have seen him play here at ISU, but this guy has a very promising future ahead.

Funny how things work out, Koch was acquired for Hinske, who was dealt to Oakland for another 23 y/o rule V guy who was the top reliever in the Southern League and features a mid 90's heater and nasty slider, Scott Chiasson. Valentine reportedly ended his year with arm troubles...Chiasson is recovering from Tommy John. Can't we just start over? :D:

I like Cotts, he did well at the CL which is a notorious hitters' league (though it also has its fair share of K artists on the mound).
