It doesn't work that way. Kids need to learn their trade. I understand it's not like back in the days where Gary Peters spent five or six years in the minors but my God, a kid can go through four different levels in a season...that's nuts.

It's not nuts, every prospect is different. Some require years in the minors, some require a year, some require less. There's no one proven method for producing a successful player. If there was, everyone would be doing it. If your developmental staff is competent, they should be able to determine if a kid is ready for the next level and move him accordingly.

The key word seems to be if.

Sickels' has his top 120 prospect list up. First time he's had one consolidated list. He usually does pitchers and hitters seperately.

He has Reed at 44 and Molina at 72. He's much more into Molina than other places.

The SOX re-acquired Terry Doyle from the Twins for 25K today.

Doyle was selected as a Rule V draft pick for the Twins a few months back. He has had a rough spring, so they offered him back to the SOX. He'll be headed to Charlotte.

Nice to have him back I suppose, but I still don't expect much.

Sox traded minor league OF Christian Marrerro to Atlanta (Class AAA Gwinnett) for future cash considerations.

Not really White Sox related, but what is teh latest on Jorge Soler? I haven't heard anything about him in a while and I figured he would sign prior to the season.

Still hasn't established residency. The Cubs are still the favorites to sign him at an exorbitant amount.

Sox signed Conor Jackson and assigned him to AAA. Had a few nice years to start off his career before falling off big time.

Didn't realize that he had a significant bout of Valley Fever as he started to tail off. Could be a decent fill in if he demonstrates even the iffy power he once had.

Agreed. Depth is something the SOX currently do not have. Could be nice to have him around.

Minor league rosters should be finalized soon. Mitchell will be in Birmingham.

Good.. Everything I read about him said he had a phenomenal Spring and re-established himself. Hopefully this is a very good year for Jared.
