I think the reason nobody took a chance on James is because he would have had to stay in the majors for the entire 2012 season. And he would have had to play, because hiding him would have done him no good. Some non-contending teams might have been able to do that, but I’m not sure that any actually would, considering that James has never been above A ball.

For the most part i agree with this article. I’m surprised Galvis is ranked only one position higher than Roman Quinn, but i’d love to see them both kick ass.
Speaking of Jon Pettibone, he just did an interview with my phillies’ blog, phightingon.com

Yeah, in essence he lost 2.5 years of development time already due to pitching so to lose another year on top of that would have been huge… And he’s so raw all he could have done in the Majors would have been to pinch run and play defense late games.
