Default Beckham promoted to AAA Charlotte

FYI

Future Sox site is reporting Gordon Beckham was pulled from today's game and is supposedly on his way to Charlotte possibly to play tonight. Speculation is he may be playing 3B at Charlotte.

I'm sure he'll be playing 3B by June. Hopefully he'll be back in the middle infield in 2010.

Well now I have a reason to look at Charlotte's box score.

he already played a game for the Barons today. Give him a chance to catch his breath.

I'm afraid when he's up here he won't live up to the expectations some posters here have of him.

Dewayne Wise isn't a good enough reason for you.

Just curious, based on what? Do you think the expectations are too high or that Beckham won't really amount to much?

Wow, I'm actually really surprised by this. I didn't think the Sox would be moving some of the top prospects up so quickly. Not only this move but moving Danks from A to AA happened a little quicker then I expected.

Absolutely nothing. I'm just saying some people think he'll be a perennial all-star and thats not easy to do. Expectations too high, I don't follow the Minors too much and I couldn't tell you how he's doing right now but the expectations are exteremely high.

Gordon's bat is pretty much ready and he will likely supplant Fields if his suck continues. That being said, the bar isn't set very high. I expect big things from him (in his career) but certainly not immediately.

If Gordon can hit .260/.325/.400 he'll be just fine. That blows Fields out of the water.
