Viciedo was back in the line-up last night - 2 for 3 with an RBI.

At what point does Viciedo pass some guys on the prospect list? He's at least two years younger than all the other Sox top prospects (Flowers, Danks, Morel), and he's the only one playing well at AAA (Morel did well in AA). I know he doesn't have as much "positional value" as the others, but the kid can hit.

He's gotta finish strong. He played like dog**** to finish his stint in AA.

Plus he's a first baseman if he plays the field at all, and that will deteriorate his value even further. In a good system, he's not a consideration for best prospect. Unfortunately, this is an awful system.

Flowers hit his 9th HR of the year last night. Hopefully he can find his old swing quickly.

Flowers with his 10th HR today. That's two games in a row. Perhaps he will turn it around.

Viciedo with 3 errors at 1B today. Missed catch, fielding, throw.

I hope I'm wrong, but I fear Viciedo, Flowers, and Danks are all garbage.

Viciedo may not bring you much in the realm of fielding, but he may turn out to be an offensive asset - we'll see. Worst case - he becomes a DH if his offense is MLB caliber.

Hudson is ready for the inevitable call-up when a starter is traded.

Cruising right now with 9 K's through 5.0 IP.

10 through 6 now.

AAA hasn't been kind to Morel thus far.

7 shutout innings for Hudson. 0 walks/10 k's, against a pretty good Yankees AAA team.

Quick, so should the organization make the reactionary move to send him down, since he hasn't been "raking" since arriving in Charlotte?

After all, he was moved up, apparently due to him "raking" in the 10 games leading up to his promotion, right?


I guess I don't get what the rush was with Morel. Exactly what was wrong with him spending even HALF a season in AA? What is/was wrong with him spending a protracted period of time with a coaching staff, who know him and can better advise him than a new group in Charlotte? I mean, is Brent Morel going to ride to the rescue of Ozzie's roster this season?

My guess is NO, so again: Why the rush with this kid?

Flowers starting to pick it up a bit, 3-4 tonight with his 11th big fly. AVG back up to .228.

Viciedo went 0-2 but had a shocking 2 BB.

Flowers hit his 12th HR tonight. Also had a single and a walk. He's now homered in 5 of his last 6 games.

He's been on fire ever since he supposedly ditched the Walker adjustments.

Say what? What are these "Walker Adjustments", and what is Walker doing helping someone in AAA when he should be helping the major league club? More details, please.

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.
