Make it 0-4; 4K tonight.

Another all or nothing hitter the Sox seem so fond of.

Another 3 K's for Hawkins this evening.

On the plus side, Chris Beck was real good.

8.0 IP 4 H 0 ER 1 BB 5 SO

He was a legit top 10 pick until he got too big with the weight lifting which impacted his flexibility and mechanics. South Side Sox has a good interview on said issue.

Continuing with the strikeout theme, Jared Mitchell has struck out 27 times in 53 at bats.

Beck is really going to break out this year. I would not be surprised to see him move up during the season.

Frankly at this point, I am happy that Hawkins is struggling, baseball is a sport that is about how you deal with failure, and just about everyone I know learns more through struggle than success.

I've always thought one of the biggest reasons Gordon's career has turned into a smoldering crater of dissapointment was that he was too successful in the minors and didn't learn how to deal with struggle.

No matter what kind of season Courtney had, he wasn't going to be in Chicago until 2015-2016 AT EARLIEST. Best the kid learn he's not a god in Birmingham or wherever the **** he is.

Erik Johnson came in at 8 on BA's Hot Sheet this week. Beck was "In the Team Photo."

Jared Mitchell demoted to Birmingham, making room for Tekotte's return from injury. Morel and Molina also to DL.

Makes me wonder if Hawkins may be facing a similar fate soon.

Erik Johnson with a 10K game and Keenyn Walker is in the league lead with his 9th stolen base as the Barons win their 10th game of the year.

Nice to see Erik Johnson thrive so far. At least it looks like the organization might have some nice pitching pieces in Johnson, Beck, and Snodgress. Position players are another story though.

Sickels on Erik Johnson:

Quote:
***Chicago White Sox pitching prospect Erik Johnson had a great start for Double-A Birmingham yesterday, fanning 10 over seven innings of work in a 3-1 victory over Huntsville. He now has a 1.07 ERA with a 25/5 K/BB in 25 innings with just 14 hits allowed. A second round pick from the University of California in 2011, Johnson does not get nearly as much attention as he deserves. He has a low-to-mid-90s fastball, along with a curve, slider, and changeup. He's throwing strikes and has a good statistical track record. Performance and stuff plus an early-round draft pedigree equals prospect. Don't ignore him.
