> Lots of bright spots here littered with top prospects: Tyler Flowers(.302,.993 OPS), Gordon Beckham, Brandon Allen, C.J. Retherford(.297), Dayan Viciedo, Stefan Gartrell (.285, 19HR), David Cook (.264, 25HR, 84RBI, 64/84 BB/K ratio!). Jordan Danks started hot but fell off after his wrist injury, and John Shelby disappointed with a .243 AVG.
> Again, lots of bright spots on the pitching side: Since departed Aaron Poreda, Dan Hudson (again, 7-0 1.60ERA), Brian Omogrosso (7-2 4.19), John Ely (14-2, 2.82), Lucas Harrell (8-3 3.25). Relievers Jhonny Nunez(2.14 ERA, 46IP), Fernando Hernandez (1.71, 52IP), Clevelan Santeliz (4-0, 0.96 ERA in 56IP)
What position has Viciedo been playing in the minors? Are the Sox planning to have him as a corner OF?

Also, I thought I heard somewhere that Flowers was named top defensive catcher in the Southern Leauge. Is this true? If yes, I thought he needed a lot of work as a catcher. So, how is this so?
