Afterwards, White Sox Manager Jerry Manuel said he could envision Harris spelling Carlos Lee in left field occasionally and even hitting leadoff

This sounds too much like Julio. I don't like it.

I look at it this way...

Not every prospect will end up failing, we already had our failure in Julio, so Willie is gonna pan out! Right?

*crickets chirping*

Right?

*cough*

Hello?... Anyone?

I trust him more the Juilo. Again, Ramirez couldn't hit minor league pitching. Harris can hit minor league picthing, lets see what he does in games not vs. our guys.

Harris also has plate patience, which Ramirez is sadly lacking.

:gun

You mean they're not all strikes?

I could envision Harris as starting CF in 2003, with Borchard in left, Hummel at 2nd, and Lee gone in a trade. Of course, I could be wrong.

I hope you guys are right because it would be sweet to have young leadoff guy who can act as a leadoff man.

Harris would be in left with Borchard in Center,you waste his arm in left.

LF - Harris
CF - LTP
RF - Maggs
1B - Paulie
2B - Hummel
SS - Manos
3B - Crede
C - Uhhh.. you got someone?

It'll be Olivo - if he's half the defensive catcher people say he is, it would be worth the potential hole in the lineup.

You mean another Karkovice? Does he have the occasional Karko power? I've heard alot about Olivo's defense, but what about his offense? Just wondering.

.364 OBP IIRC??? I wouldn't expect that to do up at the major league level......For 2003 a rookie leadoff hitter with only pretty good OBP minor league numbers isnt exactly heaven on earth...no matter how many steals he has

I feel stupid asking this, but what does IIRC stand for? I always thought it was If (something) Really Cares. Is that right?

He has good strike zone judgement. He only played in like 77 games in AA last year.

His arm and footwork are superb. His game-calling skills and how he handles pitchers is the last thing holding him back from the majors. He has good, not great power. He could probably hit like a Mark Johnson (.260 hitter with a ~.350 OBP) with more power.

I read the physics of baseball and the physicist who wrote it pretty much says that corking the bat is useless. What you gain in bat speed you lose in the fact that the bat is weaker.

Yes, but what about the placebo effect caused by the batter thinking he can hit better and having more confidence? Perhaps a little confidence boost helps some hitters. :smile:

I would think getting caught and looking like a moron would cancel that out too :smile:
