¡Viva la Revolución!

I hope they let him Dh and hit the soft tossing lefties that are still killing this team.

 

He will be sent down when Teahen gets back.

 

Nix was brutal.

I see comments like this all the time about other players/situations so I don't mean just ot pick on you.

 

BUT

 

How is Viciedo EVER plaing at 3B acceptable?

 

If he sucks defensively, he sucks defensively.

 

"Well, Player X can't get the job done defensively at 3B so we will just platoon him out there".

 

I never understood this train of thought.

 

I think we have to play him, at least sometimes in the field because Vizquel is so old, and can't play everyday. If Teahan was healthy, he'd be there most days with Vizquel filling in for him, and Viceido would get almost all of his AB's at DH. Now, Lillibridge is still up here so maybe he becomes the guy who'll get some AB's at 3B on occasion, but when you have a 40+ in Vizquel playing more than we were planning, you have to be careful with him as well.

Don't get me wrong, I am as excited as the next guy. Just don't wanna go through another G. Beckham horror.

Just to make this clear....Gordon came up last year and became a top rookie of the year candidate....it was NOT an issue of a player being rushed.

 

His has been an issue of a player not making the necessary adjustments to those made by the league against him.

Corey Snyder was the first Sox player I ever hated as a player.

 

This could be a fun topic...

Interesting move . Might be the first of a few made before the Al-Star break. Look for Williams to possibly exit with Threets replacing him. If Dayan shows he can hit Jones might be in jeopardy though his fielding ability alone is good enough to keep . Might be traded for some minor league talent. Since Kotsay just recently played in the OF it's a possibility. Even Iwamura might be considered or a more useful LH bat.

Wow! Totally unexpected. I seriously hope he gets alot of ABs. Could also help out with our non rotating DH idea for him as well. (also play some 3B with his cannon of an arm, though he will make mistakes too) Hudson and Viciedo?! I dunno if Huddy will even start, but the sox are gonna be really fun to watch with the young guys comming up. :)

 

 

J4L... get excited another young prospect is being called up.... this time by us!

I would rather have Nix over the elf in Lillibridge. But both of them suck so whatever. Welcome Viciedo, be an underachieving waste of money. And I hate that phrase, "Viva la Revolucion."

i criticized Viciedo harshly in the offseason and the first month this season...to his credit he has rebounded pretty strongly...

 

I still think we are rushing the kid by calling him up, and his inability to draw a walk is worrisome...however I am hopeful he will continue to develop his power

Another 20-21 year old kid comming up joing Heyward, Stanton, etc.. (though not the same caliber as a prospect, but still a very impressive looking young prospect Viciedo is)

 

Alexei should be happy too. :)

What weird news. They better play him, I'd hate to see him playing once every 4 days.

Nix was so worthless to this team. At least Lilli can PR. Nix can't even do that much.

You had a good run, Nix. Hope there's a place for you somewhere. Can't wait to see Dayan get everyday playing time!

Nah, I became pretty resigned to Nix’s fate as the middle infield version of Brian Anderson in the days following his slam off James Shields (also known as the pinnacle of his major league career), I like Nix, but If he has a future: it’s in the NL. I will say that if Viciedo is going to sharing at-bats with Vizquel or Kotsay, I will be very frustrated.

Dammit I was looking forward to a few f bombs from you T-Bolt. :D

Ozzie is already showing confidence in him too!

"Omar (Vizquel) is playing good now," Guillen said. "We're going to give Viciedo some at-bats because that's what he comes here for. I'm going to pick the spot to see who's pitching and the matchup. And I'll wait to see. He's not playing (Friday). I don't want to have him remember the first game of his career against that kid (Stephen Strasburg). After that, we'll decide.“

Who else can't wait to see Omar Vizquel blindly flail away at Strasburg's offering?

I really don’t trust Ozzie to give Dayan the proper playing time he needs to develop. I imagine he’s going to be sitting quite a bit in favor of Omar and Kotsay.

Seems like half of us think it's a 'season is over let's call up prospects' while the other half thinks 'hot hitting viciedo can make us help a run'.

 

Either way everyone is happy.
