Lets see where we're at after the deadline.
This draft looks to have a couple of gems in it, as well. I know it's only been a few games at the lowest levels, but I am already in love with Trey Michalczewski. Supposedly was a potential 1st or 2nd round talent that slipped because teams didn't think they could convince him to go pro.

But they don't, and that is okay. They do not project to be a 1 or 2, so therefore they are not "front line" quality. Think Gavin Floyd as their ceiling, solid, reliable, good number 3 or 4 on a winning team, and MAYBE a 2 on a BAD team.

There is nothing wrong with the fact they do not profile as a Chris Sale or Jake Peavy Talent.

You had to love Hahn's aggression in this draft. You don't fix a farm in a year, but 2 or 3 more years of this, especially with well executed trades at the deadlines, and we could see a much brighter future ahead of the Sox. Between the draft and the international period (where our farm just hit a monster Home Run), you likely will see 6 of our top 10 being new names added this year (maybe more if you assume we could land some top specs for Rios and Peavy if/when they are dealt).

Chez is probably my favorite pick of the draft. The plate discipline he's showing as an 18 year old is fantastic. Picks like Danish, Andrew Mitchell, and some of the other prep arms they grabbed pleased me. The fact that Anderson is thriving with an aggressive assignment as a raw prospect in A-ball is also encouraging. The system is still bottom third, but with a high pick in next year's draft coupled with the Sox actually signing international prospects this year and last year has me hopeful.

Yep. Erik Johnson looks like a solid middle of the rotation type which is plenty valuable. Beck has a nice ERA and groundball rate, but he needs to start striking out some more batters. Not entirely sold on him yet.

That article looked like an explanation to me. Unless you were expecting a witch burning, it should do for now.

I personally think I am owed an explanation from the makers of World War Z as to why it sucks. I paid $18 to see it! I am a customer and zombie enthusiast!

You need to explain why you paid 18 bucks to see a movie, seriously is that what it costs to see a movie up there?

No. I think Kittle took a trip to Manhattan or something...

If you see it in 3D in an Omnimax theater it might well cost that much depending on where you go. 3D in a standard theater around me is around $11.

The first 3D movie released in 1953 was House of Wax with Vincent Price, I paid 25 cents to see it.

I think he meant half the teams in baseball don't have an ace in the majors, or a future ace in the minors. I don't think he specifically meant the White Sox and Indians.

do they owe me explanation? probably not but if were open to trade almost everyone i would like someone other than the guys who saw talent in flowers[he was not in titled to a chance] deaza, viceado,keppinger,come on management were fans of the team. every day sloppy play is on players and coaching staff were just going thru the motions.i hope we can some talent but the idiots in charge scare me.i won't rant about our bad signings but we have far more than good signings

Yeah, I've seen those 3-D movies they sucked. You should check out one of the new ones, worth the extra 3 bucks...
