Parque (http://www.whitesoxinteractive.com/rwas/index.php?category=1&id=965)

"He threw like a big-leaguer today," Mud Hens manager Bruce Fields told the Toledo Blade. "He pitched inside better today. He worked ahead, and he elevated balls in the strike zone that he got guys to chase."

Any news on the speed of his "fast"ball?

Not mentioned in the article. However, Williams had this to say:

Parque still hasn't regained his fastball, but White Sox general manager Kenny Williams doesn't think that's a necessity.

"You cannot just ignore what he has been and what he has done in the past," Williams said. "You have to remain patient and optimistic with him.

"Let's assume the velocity never comes back," he added. "You still cannot rule out a left-handed pitcher in this league. There are some things he'll be able to do once he learns how to do them."

"That's for sure. Nobody said anything about being left-handed and good!"

It might be wise not to totally write Parque off. I was mad as anyone at him for his pathetic performance for our team and his perpetual b****ing, but he seems to have settled down and I believe his last outing before this in AAA was good also. He is 2-5 at Charlotte with two wins in a row. Perhaps he's hit rock bottom and is bouncing back? He certainly can't get any worse than he started the season. He can only get better. I wouldn't like to see him back up here any time soon though. No way! Also according to the article Dellaero threw a 1-2-3 inning of relief inclduing three strikeouts and pitches at 90+ mph. Sounds good to me. If only we could get him to stop trying to be a shortstop. He's 3-26 hitting or something like that. Just give up and pitch kid!

Delaerro is 3 for 26?

"Those sound like All-Star caliber numbers to me. He's ready for the 'Big Show.'"

I disagree, I think it is time to totally write Parque off. I'm tired of his whining and complaining. Let's see if we can trade him to the Cubs for Prior.
