Recommended Posts

THANK f***ING GOD! Holy s***, classic White Sox mismanagement. Wonder who Hahn had to bang to get this to happen?

Such a terrible handling of Fulmer.

 

Just think of it as them limiting his innings.

Still don't know why he was called up

Attempt to save Robin's/Kenny's/Rick's jobs? really don't know, but it was a bad mistake.

I like everything about how they handled Fulmer. Everything. Bullpen in Chicago wqs a perfect way to bite his innings but more importantly expose him to the quality of hitters in the majors. Plus the main man big daddy Coop got to spill his undeniable and unarguable wisdom into his ear. I can't wait to see the next version of Fulmer.

Then again maybe he would be better off in the minors. Coops track record over the past few years isn't impressive.

This. Called him up just to get his feet wet/no depth in minors.

This is an unexpectedly smart move.

 

I agree, he never should've been called up in the first place.

 

I hope this doesn't mean they're calling up Burdi.

I'm glad he was called up and stuffed in the pen. He learned he can get guys out up here but he also learned how much better he has to be. Now he knows. Nice job FO. Probably saved him a whole bunch of development time

Possible but I think it's more likely the brass wanted to show him how certain things he does won't work in the big leagues. Just seems like the only way calling him up early makes sense. The sox are aware of service time and developmental time and they chose this course of action. They know what they're doing with their pitching prospects. Amazing people doubt that, simply amazing.

With a guy like Burdi, if he is just blowing away AAA hitters, how is he going to get better? I understand the rushing guys crowd, but Fulmer was having no problems with AA guys at the time he was recalled. Burdi doesn't seem to be having problems with anyone now either. Chances are they will struggle here, but they and the team get a better idea of where they are at, and what needs to be improved. It obviously isn't a strategy for everybody, but if you are a better prospect and not really being challenged at your level, you aren't going to get better.

For literally 3 starts.
