Is that his translation? I believe seeing it was somewhere around there.

It's close to his MLE, yes. I read that as well.

Glad to see him rewarded for his success. I look forward to seeing what he can do at this level.

I don't wanna appear to be putting words in OCT23 mouth but I see what he is saying. We always hear in Chicago (both sides) about these can't miss prospects that are the real deal yet who was the last one to live up to expectations?

I'm very glad to see that the Sox are continuing the long tradition of rushing players through the system just so they can watch them fail, that philosophy has had a dramatic success rate in the past.

So much for Buddy Bell and his statements on sweeping changes in the organizations approach to developing talent, and here it is, the same old song and dance.

Why don't just put this in your signature so we don't have to hear about it every time a player is promoted?

And while you're at it, make your pitch to Kenny. There's no way he can ignore your using a past regime's failures as reasoning for the failure of the current.

Frank?

Robin eventually?

I don't know how C Lee and Maggs were rated as prospects though.

You should put that second sentence in your signature as well. I'm not sure why you're so confident you are right in this argument.

They are using mistakes made from past experience to form their arguments. You are only using comments made by the organization, who made all these mistakes in the past, to form your argument.

Everyone should be skeptical until this organization actually proves their comments about "change" to be true. To simply take their word for it after years of failing in the prospect department is foolish.

That said, I don't think the White Sox are rushing Beckham.

Is it really? It's not like he's tearing up AA. I mean .299/.366/.862 is very solid, but not something that screams promotion. He's done nothing this year that suggests he should be brought to Chicago this season, so I don't see the need to move him to Charlotte because there's no room at 3B in Birmingham.

I never said I was right, just that everyone else is wrong.

Care to explain which "past regime" you are talking about?
