Default Baseball America Daily Dish: Gio Gonzalez

Saw this scouting report on Gio, sounds like he's really dominating.

Very similar to my assessment.
93 MPH FB sounds about right.
That's great for a slightly-built 19 YO.

Is he targeted for 2007? (Sept. 2006 callup) or 2008 to be in the rotation?

I know - that's getting a bit ahead of ourselves...

Throw your radar gun away.

Don't tell me how hard he throws, show me his ERA and W/L record.

Too bad I NEVER got to see these guys pitch :-/ I made several trips to Charlotte and W-S and never saw any of our top prospects pitch (I topped out watching Felix Diaz). Although I will certainly be back next year for a few more games if Broadway/Gonzalez/Liotta are back again (I like my chances there of seeing a winner ) and it's only $8 for the best seats in the house.

It sure sounds like we have a hell of a lot of young minor league pitching talent. I really hope they all work out in the big leagues.

Default Hot Sox Prospects

Also, take a look at the Baseball America's Prospect Hot Sheet. 3 Sox pitchers ranked in the top 20:

12. Daniel Haigwood, lhp, White Sox (Double-A Birmingham)In 10 Southern League starts, Haigwood has allowed less than two earned runs in all but one outing, limiting Southern League batters to a miniscule .159 average (35 hits in 65 innings) in the process.

15. Ray Liotta, lhp, White Sox (High Class A Winston-Salem)You think he's funny? You think he's a clown? Carolina League hitters certainly don't, as the 2004 second-round pick has gone 6-1, 1.05 in seven starts since a promotion from the Sally League.


18. Gio Gonzalez, lhp, White Sox (High Class A Winston-Salem)The third White Sox lefty on this week's edition, Gonzalez has found his groove again in the Carolina League, with a 1.44 ERA in his last four starts while allowing just 14 hits in 26 innings.

I think it was Randar or Daver who kept responding to the "Fire KW cuz he destroyed a top ranked farm system" by saying to give KW 5 years to rebuild a farm system that was devastated by injuries when he got here.

Well lookie here gang...we have some pretty damn good arms in this system.

Lets not forget Broadway, Fields, Young, Owens, Sweeney and Anderson are also a part of this very good farm system along with those 3... and people thought after Reed, Webster and Ring were traded KW had ruined the Sox's future.

I was at the Tigers/Sox game Friday and they gave the minor league report on the scoreboard. Gio took the loss dropping his record to 3-16 with a 2.82 e.r.a.. If that info was correct it's incredible. How in the world can you lose that often with that e.r.a.. I'm guessing an anemic offense, or horrid defense. Anyway, hopefully he continues to develop.

The scoreboard is horribly wrong; read my post #5

Thanks for the info, it seemed almost impossible for those numbers to be correct. It defiantly caught my attention immediately. 13-6 instead of 3-16 makes sense.

And Valido and Getz for the middle infield, as well.
