A number of guys tailing off from fast starts- Basabe (.143 last 10), Booker (.205 last 10), Zavala (.128 last 10).

Speaking of pitchers at Kannapolis, I like Cade McClure lot, off fhe same Louisville team as Henzman. He was their second-best starter on a very good team.

I saw him pitch several times. The University of Kentucky had a great hitting team a year ago and he shut them down, something that teammate Brendan McKay couldn't do. UK hit him hard. Mckay was the 4th overall pick last year.

McClur has a good fastball, challenges hitters, and throws strikes. At worst he's a good reliever for the Sox in a couple of years.

I would think at best he's a relief arm. There's nothing in his arsenal that sticks out and he's been very hittable at a level where he should be more dominant.

Booker and Zavala aren't really prospects, destined to be AAAA or bench players most likely. Basabe had a lot of Boston hype right after the trade, but there's nothing in his past to suggest that he's destined to be a MLB regular.

Basabe was always a lottery ticket, one of those throw in types where if it all comes together he could sensational.

That said, Baseball is a very fluid game, they could go on a 4 game tear and shoot their numbers way up. Its early.

Honest question, why is Basabe on the 40-man roster?

Even in the most optimistic scenario, he's two years away from the big leagues. Given how he played last year, the injury he dealt with and where he is in his development, there was no chance he'd be selected Rule 5.

I was only able to catch it on Gameday, but the Barons had a hell of a 9th inning comeback to beat the Bay Biscuits last night. Jiménez didn't have a good game but still managed an RBI in the 9th (0-4, 2 K, 1 Sac Fly RBI), Collins had the game tying run, IIRC, and Michalczewski had a hell of a night at the plate, including the walk off hit.

A nice side dish to go along with the Sox's own comeback victory last night. :D

That game included dueling 1.0 inning relief appearance by the following Barons pitchers:
Burr: 3 ER, 2 H, 2 BB, 0 K
Hamilton: 1 ER, 2 H, 1 BB, 1 K

Not exactly a good outing by either reliever, but this time Hamilton bested Burr.

Tonight's games will have the following starters:
Charlotte: Kopech
Birmingham: Dunning
W-S: Cease

All we needed is for Rodon to start at Kanny, but he'll be starting for them tomorrow.

I'm rooting for both of them to make it all the way to the Sox bullpen just because of all the amazing references that can be made.

Brooks Boyer should be saying to himself, "I am not throwing away my shot."

The message to the fans would be, "White Sox baseball: Be in the Room When It Happens."

As a team of homegrown youngsters, they should embrace the label of "young scrappy, and hungry."

For the same reason I'm rooting for Jace Fry and Nicky Delmonico to earn spots with the club long term, and I'm hoping that Jake Burger recovers fully and becomes a solid/star 3B eventually, and that the Sox can draft Seth Beer in the second round and he could become a worthy slugging successor to Abreu. Burger, Fry, Beer, Delmonico: We already have pretty good ballpark fare; think of the promotional possibilities!

Yeah, a lot of guys have hit a bit of the wall here lately.

The Cease and Kopech outings last week too.

Long season, there will be plenty ups and downs.

Now, if they can acquire someone named "Jefferson" and/or "Washington," the slogan could be "The White Sox, Baseball's most historic team."

Here's a Yahoo Sports article about the Hamilton/Burr duo at Birmingham:
