Their international program is a joke. The only thing that can save them is an international draft. 

I think this is too strong. I don't agree with their strategy but calling it a joke is wrong. Paddy signed Micker Adolfo, Fernando Tatis Jr and Luis Robert. They have multiple intriguing $300K signings recently. I wish they took bigger chances on 16-year-olds but they just don't.

3 home runs.  0.675 percent

Nellie Fox didn't hit a lot of homers either. Give it up Harold. He's gonna be a star. The more you whine, the stupider you sound.

Gonzalez 1-1, 2B. Kid has reached base in 13 straight games now. 

A lot of people are gonna look foolish for writing him off. He won't be a star but he'll have a nice MLB career.

Years ago there was a light hitting IF in the Sox farm who hit only 14 Hrs in over 2,400 plate appearances. He went on to hit 20+ hrs each of the last 3 seasons.

I honestly don't know who this is referencing. Semien?

little bit of late season fade from the HS and younger guys, still very happy with their first seasons.

Re: Sheets,

I am pleased that he has played his way into being a reasonable asset.

I'm still not that excited by him as a prospect to the point where I think he is a legitimate option as a starting 1b. It's really crazy to go look at even starting 1b and checking out their minor league stats. There will obviously be outliers, but they usually destroyed the ball, not just played slightly above average offensively.

Like Lucas Duda was in the 150/160 wRC+ zone before being called up.

Now, that said, there are players like Christian Walker who have become late in career pretty good offensive 1b and were up and down moving up. And Josh Bell's minor league iso's weren't that great, albeit he was younger but not that much younger by time he was in AA.

So anyway, I'm still in wait and see mode, but mainly just hope he's used as a trade asset for major league upgrades.

Ray only hit 20+ twice. I wondered about Don Buford but he did not either, even with the Orioles.

Juan Uribe, likely not, did not have 2400 plate appearances before doing it

Two  good things about Sheets that help. He keeps improving offensively every year even as the levels get harder. Also, he is a plus defender. 1st basemen

who have good gloves help more than people think.

Ty Cobb averaged 5 homers a year over 24 years. 

Pebbly Jack Glasscock only averaged 1.6 homers over 17 years.

You gonna tell me homers are all that matter! PSSH PSOSH

Sheets has a wRC+ of 145 since mid May and that’s playing half his games in one of the most pitcher friendly parks in all of the minors.  He’s arguably been one of the best hitters in the entire Southern League this year, at least since his adjustment period.

I read somewhere that only homers and strikeouts matter

Is wRC+ park adjusted in the minors? If not, that’s even more impressive.

It’s not park adjusted, only league I believe.
