Not much to talk about with how bad Birmingham is, but Morel has put together a solid start to the season.

Recent BP blurb mentions:

Brent Morel, 3B, White Sox: Brent is up to .324/.361/.477 One scout noted that he is the best player on Birmingham by a mile. (not a huge accomplishment due to the lack of talent at AA) He is seen as a future every day third baseman.

Wow, not much difference between the BA and OBP. Is Morel not walking at all?

He is not a high OBP guy. Doesn't walk much. BB% of between 7 - 8% as a minor leaguer. His current walk rate is lower than that obviously but it might increase a bit. Brent takes his swings and generally puts the ball in play. He isn't going to be a stud at the plate. More like a great defender with an average bat and some pop.

I had read that he projects to be a Joe randa-type.

Should Morel become Joe Randa, I could live with that. Of course, this pre-assumes that some other players in the SOX will become what we think they will become.

Anyone have any reports on how Mitchell's rehab is going?

How bad is this offense? Shirek has given up 0 runs three times, 1 run three times, and 2 runs once and he's only 2-0.

The majority of the team is bad and filled with nothing/fringe prospects. Brent Morel is legit, and Christian Marrero is kind of intriguing but that is really it. They are hardly worth following.

Speaking of Morel, Sickels wrote a bit about him today:

This makes the Teahen deal and extension that more perplexing.

That's exactly what Sickels said in his previous mention of Morel right after the Teahen deal.

I don't think so, personally. I mean no more than it was to begin with anyway, but at the time of the signing you'd figure a 2012 arrival for Morel if he makes it and then Pierre's gone, too. So you've got a player you wouldn't mind replacing in Teahan at 3rd for a couple of years then an albeit expensive utility man and insurance for an in house option for LF for 2012. Or 1b, for that matter, though I doubt anyone would be satisfied with Teahen everyday there. In summary, even if Morel took over 3b next year, I still see 400+ PA for Teahan on this team.
