Where are the Sox at right now? Still top 8? 

Right now we're #9. Picks 7-12 are all bunched up though.

Haha, the problem with that is this board loses its collective minds. Everybody freaks out and thinks we are never going to win another game again. The negativity is quite awful. But hopefully this is our last year getting a good pick for a long time.

Sox finish the week with the 8th pick position.

Pirates, Tigers, and White Sox have been terrible since the break.

Interesting. No HS SS, and 1 college SS. Lots of OF and pitching right now.

Austin Martin should be listed as a SS.  I'm pretty sure the plan is to slide him there in the spring.  But yes very deep in pitchers and outfielders.  Some really good catchers too.

The Area Code games start today.  Last year there were 2 home runs hit in the entire event and both were by Illinois guys.  Jason Hodges and JD Gladney.  I think many more will be hit this week.

They announced  Team USA and three guys from the area made the squad.  Ed Howard (IL), Ben Henandez (IL) and AJ Vukovich (WI).  The team is absolutely stacked.

For anyone else interested, Howard is an INF from Mt Carmel, and Hernandez is an RHP across the street from guaranteed rate field at De La Salle Institute. That's pretty cool.
