Default Brian 'Sergio' Anderson

I see that BA has started three games for the Royals' Rookie League team.

His line:

4 Innings pitched, 2 hits, no runs, no walks, 5 strikeouts.

Obviously the Royals are bringing him along slowly, and granted that this is a small sample size in a beginner league, but, nonetheless, this is a pretty good start.

Yep. I'm sure they'd be moving him quicker through the system if they were in a position to contend this year.

If Brian Anderson would have played every day last year, he would have hit about .275 and would have hit 25 home runs, I don't think you can disagree with that. -Kenny Williams, GM of the Chicago White Sox.

I don't begrudge Brian Anderson one single bit. The Sox felt like they had to choose between Sweeney and Anderson. The Sox bet the wrong horse.

Good for Brian Anderson. So long as he's not pitching against the Sox, I wish him well.

Young and anderson, too.

I wonder if the sox would have stuck with young as he has performed. I would bet on not.

They picked Anderson over Chris Young.
Guillen had pretty much had it with Anderson by the time Ryan Sweeney came along. He then picked Jerry Owens over Ryan Sweeney.

Talent evaluation.
