Daver, what you basing your opinion on? Scouting reports, personal observations...etc?
It has nothing to do with being out of shape like Kruk was, it's more that he looks uncomfortable just being out there, kind of like when the Sox put Josh Fields in left.


I know a minor league scout for the Twins that lets me borrow his Knights game film.

Jose Martinez was promoted to Birmingham. Tyler Kuhn was promoted to Charlotte.

So trade bait then?
Also, good for Martinez, injuries kept this from happening sooner.

Nice to see Kuhn get promoted, even it it is because of an injury. Amazed that KW Jr. is still starting even with Martinez now in Birmingham. Here's hoping that they both stay there. There some garbage fillers on each of those teams.

That sucks. He could have been a decent bullpen arm, if needed. That's the third pitcher the SOX have lost to waivers with an already barren farm.

I never saw anything in Harrell that would lead me to believe that he would improve somebody"s bullpen.

In his first 3 games, Walker has smacked 4 doubles (6 hits) and he stole 2 bases last night. 5 strikeouts/0 walks.

What's the deal with Kuhn in the field? He seems to have split almost equal time at 2B, SS, 3B and Left Field.

The deal is that he isn't all that great of a defender. He's versatile though and profiles like a utility-man.

I don't get MLB Network, and saw that it will be shown on MILB.tv. I assume that's only for MILB.tv subcribers, though, and not for free?

Damn. I wish it was included as part of MLB.tv, or at least the premium version of it, as I wouldn't watch it enough to pay to use it on it's own.
