Adopt-A-Prospect

Recommended Posts

Alright, maybe this is a cheesy idea, but hear me out. If ya don't like it, no need to do it. Hell, rip me to threads if you don't like it, but here goes anyways:

 

I saw it on SoSH, and I believe some other boards have it to. Basically, if we can get a big enough contingent of Soxtalk members to do it, I think it'd be a cool idea for the board. I think one should 'adopt-a-prospect' so to speak, follow his progress through the organization, and focus on that player's stats. I know during the season, we get the box scores and stuff like that, but if we could have one person focus on one specific prospect, maybe that person following that prospect closely would be able to tell us that "so-and-so is on a hot streak -- 10 for his last 22 with 10 RBI's" -- something that the rest of us might not notice if we didn't follow it that closely.

 

Like I said, maybe it's a stupid idea, but what do you guys think about it? My feelings won't be hurt if you really don't like the idea and really rip me for it, BTW... So flame away! :D

Can't hurt, espcailly in this boring off-season. Obvioulsy I say we pick someone in the low levels, Rookie, or A ball, someone not to hyped, but with some potential. It could be fun.

I'll take William Bennington III. He's a 4.0 graduate student at Yale and wants to one day own the White Sox. I will follow his career and see if he emasses the type of fortune it will take to win a WS.

 

Cool idea, y'all write, I'll read. :D

Alright...

 

I'll take Donny Luuuuuuuuuuucy, the catcher.

 

EDIT: Just need to know one thing about Mr. Lucy. Is it likely he'll start the season at Kanny? Or are they gonna wait on him a bit, leave him in Rookie ball to start the year, or will he make the jump to low-A ball...?

Odds are he will be in Kanny. I can't see otherwise. He might even split time with Hernandez. :o If Lucy performed well at GF this year they might have considered having him skip Kanny because he played in college.

Alright, thanks for the help, Dan! :headbang :cheers

 

 

BTW - it looks like this is a pretty good turnout, still hoping to get five or ten more folks on here. It should keep us all a little more informed during the season...

CWS Guy, you wanna be in charge of this little thing you set up? Cause I know Jas won't want to put in any effort he doesn't have to.

 

I also think that if more people don't do it, people can choose 2....
