His AAA numbers so far are pretty darn impressive. Seems like there are so many punchless offenses this year.

The Knights play in a notorious hitter's park, so his AAA stats have to be take with a grain of salt. That said, he's a 27-year old 1B/corner OF who hits for OK power, but couldn't cut it when he was in the Pirates organization.

AAAA-player written all over him.

True. True.

But those numbers have to be getting attention (NYY, TOR, CLE, LAA, KC?) ... what's the Charlotte HR record?

Since the Knights joined AAA in 1993, these are their top home run seasons (players highlighted in red were Knights during their affiliation with the Sox):


1) Sam Horn, 1993 38
2) Brian Daubach, 1998 35
3) Jerry Brooks, 1996 34
4t) Russ Morman, 1997 33
4t) Luis Raven, 1999 33
6) Jeff Leifer, 2000 32
7) Joe Borchard, 2005 29
8) Bobby Smith, 2004 28
9) Mario Valdez, 1999 26
10) 4 tied with... 25
Jim Thome (93), Preston Wilson (97), Mike Bell (05), Mario Valenzuela (05)

Man, I remember thinking Russ Morman was gonna be the first baseman of the future...

No, they really aren't getting attention. His slash stats are .258/.310/.619.

Even if some team wanted him, we'd get back a 25 year old A-ball reliever.

Eldred could be traded for bait....but that's about it.

And that list right there tells you just how much interest a team should have in Eldred.

AAAA is right.

Brad Eldred sucks. No, we're not going to trade him for anything, and no, he's not going to see any playing time in Chicago. He's not good, he's a career minor leaguer. So...can we stop talking about him?

Eldred probably not but did anyone else see in the newspaper today a little blurb about Ol' MacDougal being trade bate despite an ERA of 5.5 in Charlotte?

Well, I think that's just rampant speculation b.s., but it did make the point that he's not helping his own cause with his crap performance.

We can trade him to the Phillies for Ryan Howard.



After all, they gave us Gavin for Freddy.:redneck

If the Sox could unload his salary, that would be a coup. They don't need to get anything in return. Just take him, please.

They could probably get some maple bats for him. The Sox could use some more.

That is one ugly list. After Thome, I guess you'd have to say Preston Wilson turned out to be the best player, and I'm no fan of Preston Wilson. I remember Daubach and Morman and Liefer and Borchard bouncing around the majors a bit, and Sam Horn had a brief stint with the Red Sox, but did the other guys even get cups of coffee?
