Well, I was pushing since the AS break for Fernando to get his chance, but I'm not going to pretend I know the situation more than KW, Ozzie, and those below sending them their information. The thing that makes me mad is that we gave that second half to guys like Mike Myers and Ryan Bukvich rather than look at younger guys within the org. who could possibly save us from making unnecessary, and potentially harmful moves to our team in order to try and sure up the pen. It would have been nice to see some of the guys with actual upside get at least a look(or even give Sisco and Masset another chance).

Masset has upside, Sisco is just a big ball of bad.

But Fernando had a great year at AA, but I'm not so sure they organization views Oneli as a person who could contribute because he doesn't have any + stuff.

Well, Sisco at least has a good year under his belt as a major leaguer. Both have some filthy stuff, are around the same age(Sisco is eight months younger), and the same problem with control that has held them back from being successful. So I wouldn't say there is much difference between their upside at all.

It's funny how they pick who gets a chance and who doesn't. Wasserman had incredible stats wherever he went, yet because he's not a "power arm" people look the other way. But the fact is, he's a good picher. Like the coach would say, "Don't give me good atheletes, give me good football players." The sixth "tool", which noone ever mentions, is the brain. Without the brain you get squat.

i hope thats not true. Oneli has been successful on every single level he has been on, both with era and k's/inning. if he can get outs ala wasserman, i want him in the bullpen. don't know about next yr, at least let him prove his success in AAA, but late '08/'09, i'd like him to be in there or traded for something of value.

Sweeney finally got his first extra base hit - a 3 run homer.

Looks like he already has himself a double today as well.

Off Adam Miller, which makes it that much more sweet. I'm so sick of hearing about that guy...

I haven't really been following, but could Sweeney's lack of XBH be due to his wrist still not being 100%? Not that I know the condition the wrist is in...

Wow, great to see Sweeney go on a bit of a tear there...this Hernadez kid sounds impressive as well. But then again, this is just the AFL, so let's not go nuts. Hopefully if they play in the Carribean League they will do better there and then do well in ST.

Phoenix wins the AFL championship

http://www.baseballamerica.com/blog/prospects/?p=666

Quote:
Phoenix’s initial tally came in the first inning as Cliff Pennington (Athletics) scored from second on Ryan Sweeney’s (White Sox) two-out opposite field double. It was the first of three hits for Pennington, who led the Desert Dogs 15-hit attack. Five other Phoenix players tallied two hits each.
Quote:
After a passed ball and a ground out to shortstop, Macri gave the Desert Dogs the lead for good with a sacrifice fly to right field. Phoenix added an insurance run when Chris Getz (White Sox) narrowly beat out an infield hit, driving in Delaney to make the score 4-2.

Considering the embarrassing showing by our guys in 2006, this is very promising.
