Meanwhile, Flowers K-rate is at 40% and he's down to .204/.313/.429

There has always been a hole in his swing, but it seems like just now it's being fully exploited. Hopefully he can bounce back.

I really hope not. It feels like they're rushing him on account of the $10 million he's owed.

If he swings like he did in ST, he's gonna have a rough go in the bigs.

Makes sense Jermaine I mean Mark was going to have his X ray today....so this could mean he is on the DL

I would assume he is just getting the day off. Dayan is probably more of a butcher at 3B than Teahen as well. There is a reason he's playing 1B the majority of the time.

According to a poster from another site who is familiar with Charlotte personnel, Lillibridge has been removed from the AAA roster for some reason.

He suspects to replace Teahen who might be on his way to the DL.

Makes sense. I'm guessing Vizquel/Nix are your starting 3B.

Speaking of Flowers and his batting woes:

http://chicago.whitesox.mlb.com/news...=.jsp&c_id=cws

Basically says the adjustments they have wanted him to make with his swing aren't working at all and he's likely to go back to what was working for him in the past.

More ammo for the Walk haters. If he was in fact the one that made the adjustments in his swing.

Hopefully that's the issue and Flowers can get back to mashing the ball. I know he strikes out a lot, but I don't have a big problem with that if you're still getting on base at a 40% clip.

Here's the sick thing: I would have called up Morel.

Whoever is in that spot will be hitting eighth or ninth and will be judged mostly for their glove. No one they could play is better defensively at third than Morel. And while he might not be 100% ready with the bat, he has a simple repeatable swing. I bet he'd hit at least .250 albeit without much power. Gotta be better than running what's left of Vizquel out there.

Viciedo is becoming a home run machine.

Greatest Arsenal goal I have ever witnessed. Chills to this day watching it.

Morel hitless in his debut. Then again, Charlotte only managed 2 hits. Flowers with one.

Viciedo hasn't played in 3 games. One wonders if he is injured as well.

For the record, the first three picks of the 2009 draft are now injured and will be/are missing significant time. Mitchell, Phegley, and Thompson. Holmberg better be careful.
