"Marcus Semien was named the Southern League Topps Player of the Month for July after batting .372 with eight home runs and 20 RBIs for Double-A Birmingham. Semien, 22, led the Southern League in batting average, runs (28), walks (29), hits (35), extra-base hits (18), total bases (70), on-base percentage (.524), slugging percentage (.745) and OPS (1.269) in the month."
Holy crap...I know people will probably say it would be rushing him, but I say strike while the iron's hot. If 35 hits and 29 walks along with eight homeruns in a single month to go along with a hole in the Sox infield doesn't say "call me up" I don't know what does.
Anyone know anything about his defensive abilities? From what I've read, "competent" seems to be the general description.
Is there not a sort of bloodshed when the conscience is wounded? Through this wound a man's real manhood and immortality flow out, and he bleeds to an everlasting death. I see this blood flowing now...
