  1. Nix was added to the 40-man roster.


    Who in the Sox system is up for being added in a few weeks? Like last year when Russell, Egbert and Harrell were added or they would have become fair game in the Rule 5 draft...who is in that category this year? Brandon Allen one of them?

    Wow...Jordan Danks already 2-2 on the day with a dinger. As excited as I am about Beckham...I'm really hoping this kid develops into our CF of the future.


    4-4 now. 2 runs. 3 rbi's. It would be a refreshing change to actually develop some of our own draft picks.

  3. Maybe a Getz/Nix platoon until Beckham is ready.


    I'd be surprised now if the Sox signed Orlando Hudson. He'll want years, but I don't see the Sox making Beckham a 3rd baseman--and he's not going to be in the minors very long. Getz/Nix/Uribe seem to be a good stopgap until Beckham is ready. If Getz or Nix play their way into the lineup long term, even better.

  4. Beckham was 1-3 with a double, walk, and 2 runs today. Also made his 3rd error in 4 games.


    His team lost 18-10, and they committed 6 errors.


    Carlos Torres and Derek Rodriguez both pitched and managed not to give up any runs.


    Cole Armstrong was 4-5.

    this is not just directly directed at you yasny but to everyone....really Beckham in 09????


    I think Beckham will be on the fast track, but they have to decide what position he's going to play. I could see him being up at some point during the 09 season, but not to start the season. That doesn't seem realistic since they'll build a team that can win in 2009. They certainly won't count on Beckham to start the season in Chicago.


    My feeling is Beckham will play 2B next year at Birmingham. If Alexei is a great SS, he'll stay there. If not, Beckham will move back to SS. I'm not buying the 3rd base idea.


    I think Beckham is in the opening day lineup in 2010, and hopefully for the next 15 years.

    I didn't realize that the kid was #23. My favorite :headbang


    He was 6 at Georgia. He was 8 at Kannapolis.


    Don't go out and by that 23 jersey quite yet. JD might not want that either.

    Yep, it's 2 on Saturday.


    Ranger posted on WSI, that there was talk of Sunday but then the teams met with MLB and came up with this.


    It's a regular doubleheader, starting at 2:55.


    Tickets for tonight's game can be used for a voucher for a 2009 game.

    That would be great, no liriano or slowey...we would actually have a chance to win the series!


    They could definitely move Slowey up to Thursday, but as of now that's how their 5-man rotation works out.


    Liriano will pitch the final weekend, so the Sox will definitely miss him unless they go to a 4-man rotation, which seems unlikely.

    AJ needs a rest badly. other than that Ozzie should play all of his regulars, unless Griffey needs a rest, then it should be BA in CF for his defense.


    I heard the lineup earlier. Hall is playing, but I can't remember if there were any other subs in today. Today is a huge game. If they can win today and tomorrow, the Sox will have a 3 or 4 game lead going into Tuesday.

  10. Ah yeah, Paul Phillips. Forgot about him. Considering Armstrong is on the 40-man, and having a good season, I kinda hope he gets the call.


    The Boone Logan callup already is curious. He sucked at Charlotte too, so hopefully he's just going to be used in blowouts.

    childers or phillips?


    Who is Phillips? They had Heath Phillips last year, but he's long gone.


    Childers would have to be added to the 40-man. Doubt that will happen.
