How old is this guy? Is he a journeyman or a prospect?

Willie Harris hit .400 in AAA at a younger age than Daigle. Not sure why we need to have this irrational infatuation with career minor leaguers several times a year...

Not really sure how this is an irrational infatuation, people were making simple comments about a guy who is putting up great numbers. No one is yelling for him to be batting third in our order or the answer to any hitting woes.

This is a continuation of past threads on the topic.

Oh man, I didn't realize someone else had the name, you should get yours changed...

Is there a way for me to switch to a new name?

I saw Daigle play in April when I went to a WS game in Kinston. I thought he looked the strongest of any of the players on the team from a batting perspective, but I didn't know at the time he was a career minor leaguer.

Maybe something in his personal life changed this year. I won't speculate, but people do make lifestyle changes that allow them to make a big step in their chosen careers sometimes. Maybe someone finally grabbed Leo by the collar and said, "Grow up, son... do you want to be remembered as the guy who never made it out of A-ball or do you want to try to do something with your life?"

Thing is, he's NOT putting up great numbers. He WAS putting up great numbers for an A-BALL TEAM at an absurdly advanced age for that level. Now, he's been playing at AAA for about a month, posting .241 / .259 / .380, striking out every third AB, and killing the Knights defensively. Other journeymen on the Knights are batting over .300. Can you imagine the numbers they'd put up against A-ball pitchers? Would that make them legit prospects, notwithstanding their age and experience?

He is actually 25 years old. He was drafted by the Tigers in 1997. He spent 4 years in A ball, a season in AA ball and was on Toledo's (AAA) roster in 2004 when he was released. The Sox picked him up and he spent last year at Kannapolis where he hit .292 with 18 HRs and 90 RBIs in 119 games.

The only reason I posted this was to let everyone know that a player in the Sox system was being honored.
