He should be in Charlotte.

Agreed. Marrero's older than his competition in AA, and has performed well. At the same time, it's not like anything in Charlotte is "blocking" him, is there?

For some reason, I remember reading that the Sox were intrigued by Jim Gallagher.

Well, Gallagher's done reasonably well, and was a draft pick, if memory serves.

For Marrero, he's done better than Gallagher did @ Birmingham, but as a NDFA, perhaps the front office regards him as not having a requisite level of talent?

We'll probably never see either guy in Chicago, though...

If he keeps it up, how much longer will the Sox say he's not ready and/or they have no place for him on the major league roster?

I'd love to put him at #5 or #6 in the order and LF in place of Pierre. But who the heck leads off? Beckham? Alexei? We don't have the bench to have him just him DH against lefties do we?

Anyone... It's not like Pierre's craptastic defense, .328 OBP or rounghly 50% SB success rate are irreplaceable. Sounds more like a #8 hitter in the national league than a leadoff hitter.

Here's some good news from the farm:

http://web.minorleaguebaseball.com/n...=.jsp&sid=t247

Dylan Axelrod, Tyler Kuhn, Charles Leesman, Christian Marrero, Dan Remenowsky, and Brandon Short all made the Southern League All Star Game.

Matt Zaleski was an "Honorable Mention" to the All Star Game, but had been promoted to AAA.

Ramirez would be the next best bet. I've always felt the leadoff hitter is only important during that 1st inning, as someone else usually leads off the rest of the game. So I don't see what the big deal is to drop Pierre.

FRom what I've heard, he's a good clubhouse guy too. People like him. He's hitting .260/.330, it's not like his bat is costing us games. Guys **** up in the field, and as some have said he's just a scapegoat for this year. It's not that simple, you can't just drop or add guys like it's a damn fantasy team.

Addison Reed promoted to Birmingham. His performance at this level should be rather telling.

This year he has been fantastic so far. Through A and High-A:

1.49 ERA .826 WHIP 36.1 IP 50 SO 5 BB

That's good for a 12.4 SO/9 and a 1.2 BB/9

Terry Doyle also getting called up with Reed. Reed's slider proved to be too much for A and A+ hitters, this will at least be a good challenge for him for the rest of the year.
As for Doyle, he had the talent, but a skin disorder on his pitching hand, to go with a tender shoulder, caused him to have a downer year that made him drop. More of a control guy with a good curveball.

VERY legit. RT @JoeCoolMan24: @Kevin_Goldstein #WhiteSox RHP Addison Reed got promoted to AA. Future outlook, reliever or starter? Legit?

Was meant to relieve. RT @JoeCoolMan24: @Kevin_Goldstein Any chance they switch Reed back to starting? I hope they maximize that value.

Heard they changed arm slot, fastball now 95-99 in relief. Could come up fast. RT @ProfessorFog: @keithlaw Thoughts on Addison Reed?
17 minutes ago
KG also mentioned him today in his minor league update. Notes a fastball that has consistently gotten into the upper 90s, and a low-80s slider with good movement and almost doubles as a changeup due to the velocity separation. Also thinks he could be in the Bigs by September.
