Draft Production

Impressive Production

This might surprise some of the constant critics of the White Sox farm system, but the White Sox are the only organization in baseball to have produced four major league players (current rosters) from the past three drafts (2008-10).

Three players from the 2008 draft — Gordon Beckham (first round), Brent Morel (third) and Daniel Hudson (fifth, traded to Dbacks) — are joined by Chris Sale (first round, 2010) in the big leagues.

Only Washington and Detroit have three players, while Kansas City, San Diego, Atlanta and San Francisco have two.  Fourteen clubs have one player.

So maybe one reason our farm system isn’t viewed as deep is because are draftees are already helping us win games at the major league level.

On your mark, get set, GO Phil and go Sox’11….j.k.

Ask and Ye shall receive! Kudos to Phil once again. With big assists from Paulie, Q and Omar! Nice win Boys, and as Hawk would say: don’t stop now. Three games under .500, let’s get the sweep. Go Gavin and go Sox’11………j.k.

That’sa too bad. We had our chance but gave up the HR to Olivo and we lost in 10…. Go Mark and come on Boys…..j.k.

Game time again. We need to keep the A’s down (losers of 9 in a row) and win this series to have a decent home stand. We are 3-3 right now and it’d be great if we can get close to break even when hitting the road next week to Twinkie-ville. Go Mark and go Sox’11…j.k.

Sox win! AND Adam Dunn went deep! Good win Boys, now let’s do it again tomorrow. Go Edwin and go Sox’11…..j.k.

JK,

You are keeping this board alive!!!

Nice, solid outing all the way around,. Buehrle did what he had to do. Dunn and Paulie went deep. Omar gave us a lift. This is what the Sox need to do to get back in the race.

JK deserves a round of applause for his blogging efforts. I’m still around, but I’ve been afraid to post recently because of what happened the last few times I did (runs for the other teams). I will say Go White Sox! and if we lose tonight, ya’ll can blame me.

Thanks, tc and josh. I haven’t been commenting that much either, but you guys are on your own for tonight’s game as my wife and kids and a grandkid are going to the Tucson Padres game tonight to be entertained by the San Diego Chicken. Should be a good time for all, and even better when I come back home to a White Sox winner. Go tc. Go josh. Go Edwin and Sox’11….j.k.
