I think I lean toward this position as well.

All things being equal, I’d prefer Robert - if he’s eligible - to play for the AFL squad. Their home games are played at Camelback Ranch, so he’d be readily accessible to Sox trainers.

I think I would draw my six Sox from this list:


Burdi (to get innings after missing time)
Dunning (ditto)
Clarkin (ditto)
Collins (more reps both at and behind the plate)

Wish list (if eligible):

Hansen (see Burdi, Dunning, Clarkin)
Robert (see Hansen)

Contingency options if Hansen/Robert are ineligible:

Cordell (a chance to show that he might be in the CF mix next year)
Call (a chance to see if his hit tool can stand up against top competition)
The universe is the practical joke of the General at the expense of the Particular, quoth Frater Perdurabo, and laughed. The disciples nearest him wept, seeing the Universal Sorrow. Others laughed, seeing the Universal Joke. Others wept. Others laughed. Others wept because they couldn't see the Joke, and others laughed lest they should be thought not to see the Joke. But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
