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.

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.

I look forward to a Sox player going deep on Anderson one day in the majors.

Josh Fields tweeted

Brian Anderson touched 95 in his pitching debut lastnight. He threw the ball really well, but not as good as his blonde mullet looked!

I can't see him getting to the big leagues as a pitcher but i wish him well, he didn't do anything wrong with the Sox, he just wasn't good enough compared to the faith put in him by the management

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.

I wonder how many Sox fans would have stuck with Young after his performances in 2007, 2008 and 2009? My guess is close to none.

If Ryan Sweeney was on the Sox he would be crucified on WSI for his lack of power and bottom of the league OPS. Rios is vastly superior to all of the players on this thread, so it's irrelevant anyway.

I dont know - in the world of Erstad, Wise and Anderson, he might have looked okay.
Rios is the man. I''d like to see KW pull another one of those at waiver time.

So tired of this excuse. Sox had subpar options (including Sweeney at the time) because they were betting Anderson would develop into an everyday hitter.

You can't blame talent evaluation when all the available options stink.

Chris Young didn't play a day in the big leagues with the Sox, so that's Kenny's mis-evaluation, not Ozzie's.

95 in his first outing, before getting into throwing strength? thats awesome.

This is going to be a great story to watch.

I don't believe it was a mis-evaluation on anyone's part. Young was traded because the D'Backs wanted him and not Anderson nor Sweeney when we got Vazquez.
