He also had an .840 OPS.

Dayan 1-1 with 3 BB.

Either he's become more patient at the plate this season, or teams just aren't pitching to him.

In Triple-A? I doubt it, although that's probably more along the lines of my wishful thinking that his discipline is getting better.

Yeah, none of the at-bats were in situations where he would have been intentionally walked.

Too bad the White Sox offense really doesn't need another good hitter.

Sickels once again on Dayan, previewing the Futures game roster:

Quote:
Dayan Viciedo, OF, Chicago White Sox: Cuban defector signed to $ 10 million contract in 2008. Hitting .322/.364/.528 with 15 homers, 20 walks, 65 strikeouts in 335 at-bats for Triple-A Charlotte. Power to all fields, should produce a solid batting average with plenty of homers despite so-so strike zone judgment. Poor defender at any position and likely a born DH, but he'll hit. Age 22. Major League ETA: 2011.

Anybody who could look at Dayan's line from last season, as a 21-year-old rookie, and not be impressed is not living on any reality on Planet Earth.

That, or they still think it's 1911.

If you hit that many home rund in that amount of time in 1911 the league would be verrrry impressed.

Well, he just hit his 16th HR in the 1st, a three run bomb.

And now Mike Minor intentionally walks Dayan with 1 out in the 3rd.

If pitchers aren't going to pitch to Dayan in AAA, I see no point in leaving him down there.

Because the minute he struggles against MLB pitching he loses all the trade value he has built by playing in a band box against pitchers that most likely never wear an MLB uniform?

So then how does anyone make it to the majors again?

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

Actually being able to play a position helps.
