From the Trib:

Minor adjustments: Manuel says he is hearing positive comments about minor leaguers Joe Crede and Willie Harris and at least one of them could be called up as early as next week when the Sox travel to National League ballparks.

"It appears we might need a position player a little bit more because we haven't used [Matt] Ginter and the other young pitchers seem to be getting along longer into the ballgame," Manuel said. "Those are the guys I hear the most about. We will have to discuss that at some point."

I would say due to the options situation - the Sox will bring up Harris for a look. Main reason, Crede is out of options and we already have one guy in that boat, Liefer.

Harris would be likely the one they call up because it could also mean the Sox are close to shipping out Ray Ray before the All-Star break.

No reason to bring up Crede. We have a logjam at the left side of the infield with Graffy, Choice, Valentin, and Liefer (could happen). If Willie comes up and does well, Ray could see his ass somewhere else.

Doesn't this quote make it sound like he has never even heard of the guy and this is like what he heard from other people....?

Harris isn't going to get any playing time. He would be here to hit for the pitcher or come in late in a game and run for someone. No chance in hell they sit Durham for Harris. If Crede gets the call they can always sit Tony.

I beg to differ with the Ray situation - What we lack on this team is speed - Ray was always hyped as a base stealing threat but his skills on the bases is terrible. If JM has Harris watch him use him and not just to PH.. Harris has great speed... his instints need to evolve more but I am tired of Ray, he had his chance in Chicago and has failed....

willie plays 2b.

I doubt Crede will be coming because his lack of options. I think its very real, however, that we'll see Harris soon and someone like Ginter will go done (who I like, I'm just guessing it will be him from the quote).
