Jon Adkins was called up this morning. No reason was given and the team was told that they would find out later on the reason why.

Either an injury or someone was traded is the only thing I can think of.

Adkins was called up? Why not Baj? Either way, this would mean a) a ChiSox injury b)someone on the team was traded c)someone on ChiSox was optioned d)is there a d?

To Joosh: Is Marte going?

It must mean someone in the bullpen. If a starter were injured they would've called up McCarthy.

This is strange news.

Or some bodies are being traded...

Probably so. He may just be a stopgap, needing a reliever until the new guys report to the Sox.

Baj has been battling dizziness over the past week. I think they wanted a long reliever. The buzz is a trade is going down.

Gotcha. Thanks for the info. I'm surprised that all of this is happening without the local radio stations picking up on this.

Thanks for the news. You're good with this stuff. Let us know if you hear anything else. I can't imagine why Adkins would be needed though. Would we be trading two major leaguers to get one?

Do you work for the team or just hang around down there? Normally, you don't hear anything about the Knights down here.

Wagner? More likely Baez.

NO significant moves outside of Blum. SO where is Adkins being called up to?? Is there a AAAA affiliate???

According to the game notes, Willie and Ross were sent down to Charlotte to make room for Adkins.

It's in the official game notes: http://presspass.mlb.com/docs/77/109/1700_1212.pdf

Yep. So, no big trade :(.

Gload and Willie down, Adkins and Blum up.

Adkins has an ERA of 5.58...in AAA. He's given up 20 home runs in 122.2 innings. Uhhh, I know that Adkins has major-league experience, but this is kind of a disappointing callup. If the Sox wanted a long-relief guy, why not call up Munoz or Diaz? Both have better numbers than Adkins in AAA, and I think we've seen enough of him.

Shoot, Gload goes down again. . . I had a strong feeling he was about to go on a tear.:gulp:

Why does Ozzie have such a man crush for Jon Adkins? The guy sucks. Always will, too.

All the opponents will see is meat. They won't get skinny on this diet.

Diaz, Munoz or even BMac would have been a better call up for the pen.

Hope I'm wrong.
