    8/22 games

    Interesting that May has his 6th homer, and yet ONLY has 4 doubles. I understand that his time at Kanny is a small sample, but IMHO I didn't think he'd had this much power already. I'm wondering if he'll top out at 10HR or less a year, or if his upside/physical frame can help him hit double digit HRs every year.

    FS visiting three affiliates in the coming days

    I'd love an interview with Tyler Danish at Kanny, or just a couple of quotes if at all possible on anything, or how the Sox got him out of his commitment to Florida. (I know part/most of it is $$$, just wondering if there was anything else).

    Hawkins in August: New Hope?

    And those videos to illustrate what he has seen and scouted puts everything in perspective about Courtney. Good stuff!

    White Sox v Tigers

    Just checked out some stats from Yahoo.Com on Dunn. You know when he plays 1b, his stats this year are: G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB K SB CS AVG OBP SLG OPS 64 221 30 53 8 0 15 37 40 67 0 1 .240 .362 .480 .842 Pretty cool.

    White Sox v Tigers

    Rienzo had 6 strong innings. Maybe Ventura left him out too long and should have gotten a reliever for the 7th??

    2013 Minor League Transactions

    http://chicago.cbslocal.com/?podcast_url=h...mp;dcid=CBS.CHI In case you missed the interview on Saturday, this is Asst. GM Buddy Bell talking with Chris Rongey on the White Sox weekly radio show. Some pretty good answers regarding the state of the minor leagues, what they preach to the young hitters, and how Jim Thome is coming across to the prospects. Currently, Bell and Thome are in AA Birmingham taking a look at Brandon Jacobs.

    QUOTE (flavum @ Aug 1, 2013 -> 07:54 PM) Somebody on Twitter is saying Barnum got a concussion at the play at the plate. According to the Intimidators' Twitter feed, and @BigTexJosh (voice of the I's), the catcher's glove hit Barnum in the head while making the tag. OUCH.

    Joseph (Joe) Martin Dvorsky

    EAT EM UP CATS! TEXAS STATE'S OWN!!!! So the University and baseball field are literally my backyard........ Anyhow, he's doing pretty good still, stat wise, earning a promotion from Low A Kanny to High A Winston Salem. Combined, he has the following: 25 games 39.2 IP 1-2 W-L record 2.27 ERA 6-43 Walks/Ks (love the K rate there) 39 hits allowed. One big number sticks out. 6. The number of HRs he has given up. I'm not sure what is normal for a reliever, but that seems a bit concerning to me.

    AAP: Kevan Smith

    Kevan is still playing at High A Winston Salem... This year, he's played 72 games, 274 ABs, and has the following line: .255/.346/.431/.777 70 hits, 18 2bs, 3 triples, 8 HRs. 53 RBIs and 47 runs scored. 42 strikeouts and 30 walks. Not bad. Little bit on the old regarding Age-to-Level at 25, but seeing that he was raw when he was drafted after a QB career at Pitt, he's learning slowly and developing.

    AAP - Erik Johnson

    From my first post.... Today, he's arguably the Sox's #1 prospect. 9-2 W-L, 2.24 ERA in 17 starts, AA and AAA combined. 100.2 IPs, 92Ks, 27 walks Has three CGs this year with one SHO. Currently on the DL with a strained groin.

    Last 10 games: .209/.267/.465/.692 16Ks in 43 ABs, small sample size of how his year has been going. .194/.265/.470/.735 at High A Winston Salem for the year. 116Ks in 243 ABs. That's past Jared Mitchell-like. That's just...........wow. 18 HRs in 243 ABs for the year. Not bad for power, but everything else has been a disaster.

    Fangraphs Future Closer: Daniel Webb

    QUOTE (NorthSideSox72 @ Jul 11, 2013 -> 03:11 PM) You were. After we published your article and tweeted it, he replied that he was there. His name is Nathaniel Stoltz, I've used his videos in a couple articles and he provides some good info on Kanny and WS guys from games. He recently joined Fangraphs, also writes for Beyond the Box Score. He's also on Twitter: @stoltz_baseball

    Red Sox interested in Thornton

    And, as much as some want to bash Thornton, he's a lefty who throws 95mph. Teams value that plus his experience.

    Rosenthal: Sox should market Sale

    QUOTE (Jerksticks @ Jul 10, 2013 -> 06:13 PM) Haha totally. Prospects? Are you ducking kidding me here lol. I'd need at least 8 jurickson profar level prospects before I even listen. Plus what a nice message that sends to our young guys: Sign a team friendly contract and we'll send you packing to a destination of your not-choosing for the next 7 years. GMAFB even discussing this like it's smart or even plausible. THIS. Sale is going nowhere. You think we have low attendance now? We trade our #1 for prospects? No thank you.
