    Morel Back with Sox

    Post by rmapasad on Fri Jun 28, 2013 6:21 pm

     Just noticed Brent Morel was in the lineup again today after being called up on Wednesday.  This is probably a temporary thing with Konerko and Gillaspie being out of action for a few days. 
    While Morel was doing OK at Charlotte this season, he actually hit better in his intial callup to AAA back in 2010.  He is showing more patience at the plate this year but he's also striking out an alarming rate too.  At this point, his future in the bigs looks to be as a backup player.

     Roger, everybody in this organization strike out at alarming rates, from A Ball up to the parent club. High strike outs, low OBP epitomizes this organization. That's why there are so few position prospects in the system. Kennan Walker and Jared Mitchel are striking out about 40% of the time. Pitiful. Maybe if they stop drafting wide receivers instead of baseball players.

     It is important to get those guys who can run a fast 40!

    Brent is back no more, no more, no more. Hit the road Brent, we don't want u back no more.  
    Morel is a big disappoint to me. I thought hitting .400 in the AFL would translate into at least a good MLB career. Wrong......
