Quote from: MongoLikeSox on May 11, 2023, 08:04:29 AMThis time of year is sort of fun in one aspect. Players getting off to hot starts begin to either fizzle out or show that they're really busting through. The two hot names of the system not named Marcelo Meyer this past Winter were Ceddanne Rafaela and Niko Kavadas. Both are struggling by recent standards, with BA's below .250 and only 3 HRs between them. The Sox' 4th round pick last year just got promoted after hitting ,338 in Greenville. He went 3-for-6 in his first Portland game. BA at .350 and OBP at .495. The numbers really get interesting. 107 plate appearances resulted in 20 K's, 21 BB's and 28 hits. Doing the math on this, he's hitting .466 on balls in play in 80 official AB's. Thassum good, clean living right there. On the hot start pitching front, Drohan had his worst outing by far. 5IP, 5H, 3ER, 3BB and 6K's.

Quote from: Sea Dog 23 on May 16, 2023, 09:02:28 AMNow that the Sox have embarked on a nosedive, the disgruntled fan always jumps to the call for "bring up the prospects". That will happen most seasons in Sept, sure.But I have this lump in my throat that Bloom & Co. have doon such a sucky job of drafting and developing the farm that we really don't have more than one/maybe two prospects in the system to get any air time. Please tell me to be patient. Getting more in line with Fred's call to just clean house, top to bottom.
