Allen is 2-2 so far with a single and a triple. I have to say I'm rather excited about having a first base prospect who won't be a base clogger.

I'm real excited about Allen as well. Aside from Beckham, he is the most intriguing prospect in my eyes.

He was even 17 for 21 in stolen bases last year. He's a big one with some speed.

Just my opinion, but I don't think Allen ever wears a Sox uniform. We already have a couple other guys who may end up at 1B...I think he's going to be dealt. Maybe later this year to fill CF...?

I hope we keep him, especially if Flowers proves he can handle catching.

As we're talking about him, Brandon singles in his 3rd ab. This time driving in Birmingham's 3rd run.

Very much agreed.

Allen is now 3 for 3 today with an RBI single.

Viciedo also just hit his 2nd RBI single of the day.

Something tells me Kenny will hold onto him. With Thome, Dye and Konerko possibly leaving the team in each of the next three years, we'll need a guy like Allen.

He seems to be that happy medium that both Kenny and Ozzie can be happy with. Allen can hit for some power which is good for our ballpark, however he isn't station to station. He can steal some bases and allow Ozzie to play "small ball." I'm sure Ozzie told Kenny to hang onto him after seeing him in spring training.

Agreed

I think Allen will be at 1B or DH with Viciedo taking over the other. This is of course assuming the Flowers remains behind the plate. I'm very excited for the future as I'm sure most you here are.

Also have to take into account the Fields and Viciedo situation. One of them is going to have to move. Viciedo may be able to take over in the outfield, but who knows?

If Allen is having a good season and can be good trade bait at the deadline, Kenny won't be afraid to pull the trigger.

The White Sox future looks really promising. Kenny has done a good job fixing the minors, he still has some work to do but he's definitely on the right track.
