Here is the link to the Phil Rogers chat about the Top Ten White Sox prospects if anyone didn't get a chance to see it. It's kind of annoying because the page reloads every 60 seconds but it's a real good read.

I went ahead and printed the chat instead of trying to read it online.

Rogers likes Brouchard by the end of '03 season to be with the Sox and also thinks Joe will cut down on his strike outs. He made the comparison to Joe Crede and noted how Crede made adjustments to his swing.

Rogers also thinks Rouch will be a solid starter this season , noting his two outings at the end of last year were after he built his fastball back to the low 90's.
Rogers believed the Sox rushed Rouch last year by bringing him north after spring training and he would have been better off down in the minors building his arm strength which was then in the high 80's.

Another kid he mentions is SS Mike Morse. I remember watching Morse down in Tucson last year and his size is what stuck out.
At 6'4 and 180 he isn't the typical ss prototype, but then either was Cal Ripken. Thing is with Morse is that he looks even taller than his 6'4 height because of his slight built, kind of all elbows and knees.

The best part of the report was Rogers telling a chirping Twin fan that the Twins haven't had 3 winning seasons in a row since the Rod Carew days...woohoo !!!

He's young and scouts like him but he hasn't hit a lick and it's been said that he'll probably move to third. Thats if he ever develops any kind of MLB bat.
