I can't tell if he is delusional or if he realizes the White Sox train has pulled out of his station. (http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20110221&content_id=16695452&vkey=news_cws&c_id=cws&partnerId=rss_cws)

I foresee him showing the world, at Charlotte, he can hit .280 and then Kenny being able to move him in July.

Fluff piece. It's a bunch of the obvious with some humor mixed in. Between his health problems and his inability to hit, phlegley is hardly a risk to flowers on the depth chart.

Well, Flowers did change his swing last year which I understand was detrimental to his development.

I also find the timing of the demise of his offensive skills and his positive banned substance test to be more than coincidental.

Shouldn't this be in the minor league section?

I don't. Suspended in 2006. Explain his successful 2007, 2008, and 2009 seasons. Try again.

That being said, he's on his way to bust city if he can't fix that swing.

:rolleyes: I also mentioned the change in his swing.

One thing he needs to remind himself of is the fact that he's 10 years younger than AJ and Castro. There's time for him to develop.

He's hardly a sure thing but can you really separate the health problems from his hitting ability at this point? I think this is just as big of a year for Phegley as it is for Flowers.
