The Petricka one was kind of odd since he had a pretty bad start. How's progress on his off-speed stuff?

Premature I'd argue. Wasn't exactly dominating in Birmingham. We'll see I suppose.

It still isn't considered very good. He's very likely destined for the bullpen where he could thrive.

It's been mentioned that Molina/Petricka's promotions might just merely be due to the double header and the associated promotions. Just to get a taste of the higher level if you will. We will see.

Either way Molina was lit up in Charlotte.

He's outperformed anyone's wildest expectations. On top of that, he's just a ****ing spark plug. He plays hard, seems to have a good baseball IQ (at the plate, anyway), and is just an exciting guy to watch. I definitely feel he brings an intangible energy to the team, like he's out to prove everyone who gave up on him wrong.

Now, granted, I know that he just turned 28 so you can't pencil him for the next 10+ years like you would a more traditional prospect, but his prime years will probably last until at least 2015.

In terms of offense, De Aza's performance in his time with the Sox has been better than Chris Singleton's. Singleton was an excellent defensive center fielder and De Aza has been quite good with the glove, too.

So after his torrid start to the year, Jared Mitchell is in a bad slump.

.156/.229/.313 over his last 9 games with 14 SO to 3 BB. K% back up to 26%. Hopefully he turns it around soon.

If for some reason you'd like to see the Winston-Salem Dash rendition of "Starships" by Nicki Minaj, you can watch it here.

Looks like at this point Nestor Molina has not been all that impressive. Great...

Yep. Been rather mediocre so far. H/9 are up, and the SO/9 are way down. Still a ways to go though. I never did, and still don't think he's a top of the rotation guy. Still predict he's a solid middle of the rotation piece when all is said and done.
