It probably depends who you were talking to. I had him rated higher in terms of whether or not he was a "sure thing". I don't think any of us denied the fact that Young had the highest talent ceiling of all the OF prospects though. Ryan is still a kid, he has time to develop. I wouldn't get bent out of place over a small sample size in the AFL.

Egbert pitched 3 innings today. No walks. Couple runs.

Sweeney K'd 3 times. Average under .200. Looks like another bust unless he can start hitting for power--or even for average.

Yep, he's a bust because he hasn't played well over the course of a couple of weeks. And before you bring up his season; it was injury-ridden.

I'm not saying this because of the last two weeks. I'm saying this because he's proven to be a slap singles hitter. And part of being a legitimate prospect is being durable and being able to stay on the field. He needs to have a real solid year at Charoltte in 2008---stay healthy and hit for more power.

I really don't envision Sweeney ever hitting for power so dramatically that it changes his game. He's going to have to be a high OPS guy to be effective. He's not a centerfielder either, so as a corner outfielder who can't get on base right now and without power, he's Jeff Abbott.

Jeeze, Hernandez sounds filthy, I'd like to see him compete for a bullpen spot next season.

Nice to see Getz rebound after starting off so terribly.

Is this primarily a bad hitting league (ballparks, weather, talent, whatever)? Our pitchers have 58 Ks in just 59 innings, which is outstanding among four different pitchers. Walks are obviously high (nice 1.11 WHIP though), but the ERAs are great as well. Any particular reason for that?

Because our farm system is outstanding!!!

Actually if I could put that in deep pink and teal combined I would.

On a more serious note, the AFL tends to be more of a hitters league being in Arizona and all. I wouldn't put too much stock in the numbers, it's a relatively small sample size, but it's nice to see some our guys excelling.

ESPECIALLY hernandez. he put up solid numbers this yr in the minors, and is following it up in the AFL. it would be amazing for the white sox's checkbook if they could groom their own relievers, such as wasserman, russell, oneli perez, hernandez, (heath phillips?), etc.
