    Maybe no one should have been freaking out about less than a month's worth of DSL games fresh off signing a new contract. Really, no one should give a shit about DSL games in general, but certainly not in this context.

    They're third in the IL in average attendance and less than 100 from the league leaders

    I know Ramon Torres is just org depth but the guy is on the hot streak of his life since moving from Bham to Charlotte

    I just wanted to show my support for the points made here. I don't think Rutherford is much of a prospect at this point. No reason to totally bail on him, that doesn't accomplish anything, but I'm not seeing reason for optimism. Sheets is starting to look like a legit bat. Him and Stiever can combine to make a decent trade package in the offseason.

    Good spot. Zavala catching and Collins at first, too. Looks like they're getting creative with ways to get all three in the lineup. Those three plus Robert and Mendick are the only players of any consequence (safe to say the White Sox have given up on Palka?) in Charlotte so it's good to see them all in the lineup at the same time. Not a great team defense though ha. The poor pitches already have to deal with that ball in that park and now they have a bad D to go with it.

    Ivan Gonzalez got moved up to Great Falls a couple days ago, but he hasn't played there yet.

    I'll give you decently pleased with Delgado (although his K rate has gone up this year). Weaver is not doing much in year 2 of rookie ball.

    I noticed Kaleb Roper's line in Great Falls tonight (retired all 12 batters he faced with 7 Ks) and thought to myself "Please don't be 23. Please don't be 23. Please don't be 23." I click on his profile. He's 23☹️

    Pretty sure Luis Robert just got robbed of an RBI infield single.

    7/24 Games

    Yeah I noticed that too, but it's still just over 18%, which is fine. Not exactly red flag territory. Plus, 6 of his 15 Ks in Kanny came in his first 4 games (19 PA). He has 9 Ks in the 63 PA since (14.3%).

    I don't think there would be concern of a lack of power if he's getting 8 HRs a year. I think the concern is that it would be mildly surprising for him to reach 8 HRs in a year. The power projection could be *that* low. We're potentially talking a Scott Podsednik-esque 3 HRs in two seasons with an ISO well below .100. And Madrigal won't steal bases like Pods and might not walk as much either (though he should hit for a higher average to cancel out those two things). Pods was one of my favorite players, but the margin for error on guys like that is tough. Madrigal really could use *some* power.

    I agree, but that's also not a high bar on the White Sox.

    Charlie Tilson Optioned to Charlotte

    Yep, beat me to it. Looks like Engel is back

    Charlie Tilson Optioned to Charlotte

    They have 13 pitchers already so another one doesn't make sense to me. Engel makes sense positionally, but also doesn't really make sense because why would we want Engel up? Have they just decided Tilson can't hit either so we might as well have Engel up for his defense? Could it be Tim Anderson?

    Yeah, good to see him performing. I know you know this, but he is going to have to move quickly given his age. At least he is in Great Falls, but honestly, I wouldn't mind seeing him move up to Kanny before the end of the year. He needs to be in AA by the start of 2021, if not earlier.

    I still think Robert is a guy I want in the middle of the order because I don't see him as a high OBP guy in the majors. I do see him as having huge power though. I think he will be more of a Baez type bat than Moncada or Eloy.

    7/12 Games

    He got hit on the jersey. Not even sure it hit his body. It was chest high and he leaned out of the way, but it got his jersey solidly.

    Sheets keeps this up, he gets dealt in the offseason. Him and Walker + another OFer isn't a bad package. Under the assumption that they are going to keep Abreu, there's no room for Sheets. Vaughn isn't far behind him so 1B/DH is Vaughn/Abreu.

    Ryan Sweeney was a "golden god."

    7/11 Games

    I was "watching" on gameday when I saw Robert was going to hit that inning. When I saw the ole "in play, run(s)" I was thinking, man it would be cool if he did. Damn near lost my mind when I saw it. He's going to put up some serious numbers in that park with that ball.

    No Steele Walker in the lineup tonight. He on his way to Birmingham finally?

    7/9 Games

    Both four-pitch walks. I know the assumption is he won't stay in Kanny long, but the four-pitch walks are as much a sign of him being too good for the level as anything else. If pitchers are still pitching around him, move him up.

    I wonder why Steele Walker is still in Winston-Salem. Birmingham is trotting out Damek Tomshaw in the outfield.
