I would have to agree with Hawk. I was at a game in July, I think it was the 21st and Rowand was playing center and he was a stud. He had like nine putouts and has a cannon for an arm.

If I am not mistaken, that...would be a some sort of record.

Sorry guys, but I'm not convinced yet. I just don't think he is ever going to put up any power numbers. He is not a very big man.
I love his attitude and desire however.

Sheesh, it's awfully early to assume he won't put up power numbers. He displayed plenty of power in the minors. He's young.

Power numbers usually develop a bit w/ experience. He looks like he's using more of a contact swing right now, in order to keep his OBP high and thus, warrant a starting spot on this team. He had a higher K ratio in the minors to go w/ the added power so it seems pretty clear to me what's up w/ him. As he gains confidence, expect to see more power out of him.

Gotta admit, he's doing fine right now just doing what he's doing. Bunting, stealing, making good defensive plays, hitting and walking. Let the HR's come as they may.

Rowand has shown me more than I expected him to this season. The real test comes next year when the opposing pitchers start making adjustments.

I'm still skeptical about his long-term potential. I hope I'm wrong. Let's revisit this topic at the next all-star break.

On the White Sox Listserv, we were lamenting the fact that Crede and Rowand are not getting more playing time. The only reason I could think that Rowand does not is because they are maybe preserving his rookie status for next year. I know that once you have more than 150 at-bats, you no longer qualify to be a rookie. Does time on a roster also count? Might be the same deal with Crede. Crede only has about 60 ML at-bats, Rowand now has 119.

Hmm, that means Rowand is in line for Rookie Day next year.

Damn you all!

Why anyone would take anything Harrelson says seriously is a mystery. He is the man who wanted to make Carlton Fisk a left fielder and Joel Skinner the catcher, therby replacing Dom Perignon with a "fizzy". He also got rid of a very young Bobby Bonilla at the start of his career. He is an absolutely laughable source of baseball knowledge.

Lest we forget his love affair with Julio Ramirez earlier this year.

Wonder where Julio will be 3-5 years down the line?

Driving a cab would be my guess.

Learning how to hit at this stage might be a tall order.

Of course, if Charles Finley were still alive and kicking, Julio just qualify as the next Herb Washington.
