    I see what you mean. .277 against lefties, .251 against righties. Even weirder: 4.24 ERA at home, 1.52 ERA on the road. He has 8Ks through 5 IPs today.

    Leesman has been really, really good the last few games. Makes me wonder if Thornton gets traded, if Leesman gets a crack at the bullpen for the Sox?

    I think that my AAP Jeff Soptic is finding out quickly that just because you have a high 90s fastball does not make you invincible. Especially after today's game. OOOOOF. Better get those offspeed pitches refined.

    Chance of being in 1st by ASB?

    If Floyd and Humber do not turn it around, we're probably in 2nd place by ASB.

    QUOTE (balfanman @ Jun 12, 2012 -> 03:43 PM) What do you think that the chances are of him getting called up to play 3rd base? If Hudson doesn't start hitting soon don't they have to try something? In the majors, according to Baseball Reference dot com, Dan has played a grand total of 9 games at 3b. And, 4 in LF.

    2012 Minor League Catch All thread

    According to Kanny's Twitter, Snodgress was hitting 95-96 mph today. Not bad!

    You're KW, what next?

    It would be a minor replacement, but demote Stewart to AAA and bring up either Doyle or Axelrod. Live with Hudson at 3b until the end of June and see what you have from there. Humber/Floyd ??? Don't even know. If Humber doesn't have any options, move him to the pen until he gets his act together. Floyd, IMHO, is still trade bait.

    2012 Minor League Catch All thread

    QUOTE (SpainSOXfan09 @ Jun 7, 2012 -> 12:46 AM) Trayce Thompson still hitting pretty poorly in A ball. Not sure how much time he will be given past this year before the BUST label starts getting floated. A 21 yr old playing in High A should not even be in the running for any consideration for the Bust label. It's a small sample size, but his June splits look encouraging. .259/.344/.630/.973 Give him some time. Those that follow T2 know that he's a raw prospect, high upside. I wouldn't be surprised to see him in the minors until he's 24.
