I just hope that Fields ends up as good as that other third baseman from OK. State. I don't have a lot of confidence in Crede.

If he becomes as good as Robin, we'd be in for a treat.

I don like borchard, but he does seem to have the potential to become a 5-tool outfielder, even beltran took a few years to gain superstar status, he hits very good in the minors, i wonder how long (if all) it will take him to start shining
It is a sad, sick day when we are comparing Joe Borchard to Carlos Beltran. I'm gonna go be sick now...

I agree, apples & oranges. Beltran was much younger when he broke in. Based on age, Borchard's pretty close to his career peak right now.

Default Josh Fields Squared????

Just think how cool it would be to have both Josh Fields of the White Sox to be at the MLB level at the same time!!! I am sure it would give stats folks something to spin about!

Post Borchard

Went to a media luncheon this week and Nick Leyva was there talking about the triple A team this year. There were two concensus about Borchard: 1: if he doesn't have a good spring training, he more than likely will be traded out of spring training 2: no one thinks he will have a good spring. He also said that the phenom will be Pedro Lopez at short stop and they will more than likely play Burke at third. Jorge Tocca is supposed to play first. He feels that his team will will the playoffs this year since Chicago has pretty good talent and won't need to pull as many players up as in the past. It will be interesting to see what of this comes to past. He also said that Sweeney should be here too.

Well, Sweeney won't start at AAA and I'd be pretty shocked if Lopez didn't play the first half of the season in Birmingham either.

Trade Willie and Borchard to Arizona for Cintron and a prospect?

If Fields lights it up in Birmingham in Charlotte early in the year, with how fast some of these college kids are making the big leagues these days, I wouldn't hesitate to bring him up if Crede struggles.

What do you mean? We can't find one of the two now. That's what started this thread.

Welcome to well meaning chaos. I think the farthest a thread went and remained on subject was no more than 10 posts. Of course, this post isn't helping much either, is it?

I don't think they'll accelerate him at that rate. He's got a lot of work still to be done on the defensive side of things and at each level he is going to initially struggle with the K's...
