With the loss, Kanny drops to 3-21...by far, the worst record in the SAL. They've now lost 6 in a row and have only 4 players batting .250+. Despite giving up only 1 run in 7 innings, Rote gets the loss. He's now 0-5 but with a 3.67 ERA. He's given up 22 R but, amazingly, only half of them are ER. Overall, the team has surrendered an astounding 47 unearned runs.
:angry:

I was going to see them play in WV next month, but I'm wondering whether it's worth the effort. The MLB draft can't come soon enough for these guys.

On the flip side, the Knights continue to play unbelievably well. They lead the IL with a 19-6 record. They have 4 players hitting .296+ (Gonzalez, Rogowski, Fields, and Sweeney). Rogo and Owens are each 7-of-9 in SB. They also have a number of good defensive players and the best pitching staff in recent memory.
:gulp:

The I's have quite a few guys the Sox are high on (Carter, Allen, Sanchez, Hernandez, Orlando, Cunningham.) Are they just at too high of a level? (Or too many of them being challenged at once?) Or are they just a lot worse than the Sox thought? I've got to say that since Wilder came over he has pushed EVERYBODY. For instance, I was shocked to see Gomes at W-S. Whatever. Things are brutal for us right now in A ball.

The lower levels for the Sox this year are just extremely young in terms of talent, even for their level. They have a few filler-type players, but most aren't all that good. W-S has good-to-decent pitching but Kanny is just not strong top-to-bottom anywhere...

All of the young talent is of the "very raw" variety for them, and they'll be more inconsistent and streaky and overall a less competitive team.

will definitely be interesting to see where they go in the draft and how the I's perform in the second half after gaining some experience.
