Not like last year:
Viciedo, Beckham, Retherford, Allen, Danks, and Flowers. The extent of me following the Sox minor league teams this year will be when Dan Hudson starts. Other than that, I'll check stats once in a while.

The bulk of the top prospects are of course in Charlotte this year. The farm system is still in a rather sad state as evidenced by most of the rosters I've posted. I'm hoping some of the Kanny prospects break out. Other than that, I'm interested in how David Holmberg and Trayce Thompson perform once rookie ball starts.

AA would look a little better with Mitchell in the OF...speaks to state of the farm system a few years ago...there's no "wave" of prospects behind Beckham and the AAA group.

While not a "wave," I still like Morel quite a bit. I wouldn't be surprised if it were HE and not Viciedo that ends up taking Teahen's job in ~2012 or so.

Viciedo is already starting the shift to 1B.

Why were Danks and Viciedo promoted?

Where is Jared Mitchell playing?

Oh I missed the injury on him.

I'd thought that they were keeping him @ 3rd, at least part time, no?

I'd imagine that Danks is @ Charlotte, so as to improve his trade value.

Huh? I don't think you've followed this closely enough if you think Danks has been moved along for trade value purposes. He played 73 games in AA last year and played well in the AFL and spring training. It's the next step.

Also, when Ozzie and Kenny are in love with a guy, they are usually terribly hesitant to trade him. Given they have drafted the kid twice, paid him well, have his brother to keep happy and sign long term in the not to distant future...

well... not saying he will never be traded, but it's extremely unlikely unless they are trying to land a guy of Peavy-like stature.

Buddy Bell said in the conference call to my question about Shelby that "he looks the best I've ever seen him." and that he expects him to be reassigned to Charlotte before the end of their season.

Are the Sox planning on Mitchell playing at all in the minors in 2010 or are the Sox hoping for Mitchell to play in the AFL this fall?

Morel is a potential bright spot. He has a strong glove and showed some offensive skills in the AFL last year.

Yep. Morel is pretty much the only touted prospect in AA. It's Morel and a bunch of "meh." I really like him, but I have a feeling he is tradebait.

Mitchell isn't playing this year at all according to reports. He also mentioned as such during last Friday's LSU/Georgia game when he was being interviewed. He mentioned there is a possibility he will play in the AFL/Winter Ball.

Two other pitchers to watch are Henry Mabee and Miguel Socolovich. I like Mabee as a reliever. We'll see if he can keep moving up. Socolovich, for a guy who weighs so little (155 is his listed weight), can really whip the ball and gets it up there in the low 90s. If he can put some weight on his 6'1" frame, he might be all right.

I agree with your statement about Danks' performance in AFL. And I like Jordan Danks, as do KW and OG. But, given the makeup of the current OF in Chicago:

Rios looks like a fixture in CF for a few years, for better or for worse.
Quentin looks like the cornerstone upon which KW will build the lineup for years to come. Barring injury, he should be in RF for years to come.
Pierre is aging in LF, and could be replaced at some point. But Jordan Danks won't be a leadoff-type hitter in MLB. Given the lack of a viable successor @ the leadoff spot, my assumption is that LF will be the spot from which the next leadoff hitter will come. [There won't be a leadoff man playing 1B/2B/3B/C for this team; SS is one possibility, however.]

I think that a lack of a spot for Jordan Danks will necessitate this, unfortunately.
