As I indicated earlier in the thread, I think Petricka and Webb might both be in line for a September callup. Both have been pitching well out of the pen in Charlotte. Webb hasn't given up an earned run in over a month.
I can't keep track of the lousy prospects we got in return for trading major league veterans (Sergio Santos, Edwin Jackson, and Carlos Quentin). It looks like he's the "horse****" we got for Quentin.

WSI Sox Slow Start Excuse-O-Meter
- Poor play in spring training doesn't matter (2005!)
- It's still April
- It's early May
- Wait until Memorial Day before worrying about anything
- Wait until the weather gets warmer
- '83 Sox! '05 Astros!

- Still time to turn things around in 2nd half
- In Aug/Sept: Too late to complain about poor performance earlier this season.
Special mention: - Blame Sox fans for not showing up to games as soon as the team has one winning streak.
