    Courtney Hawkins

    Post by MGJOHNSON on Tue Jul 16, 2013 11:14 am

    OF Courtney Hawkins was the Sox 1st round pick in last year's amateur draft. He was the 13th player selected overall, and the Sox gave him approximately $2.5 million to sign.

    So, how's Hawkins doing in his first full pro season? Well, he's got his swing down pat striking out slightly better than 50% (107 strikeouts in 213 at-bats). Such prowess should really give Jared Mitchell, the Sox 1st round pick in 2009, some real competition going forward. Like Mitchell, Hawkins has also managed to keep his batting average below the Mendoza Line this season at .188 while connecting for 15 dingers for the Winston-Salem Minuses (or is that "Dash"?)... Adam Dunn just has to be looking over his shoulder!

    Perhaps the Sox should have Hawkins playing for Kann'tapolis, but they're fast tracking him. After all, there's nothing like getting a quick return on their investment. Can't wait to see how he does for the Birmingham Barrens! Laughing

    Fuck the idiot White Sox looking for "athletes" with an "upside".  Mike Trout sure has an UPSIDE while cornerback Jared Mitchell is busy striking out.

    Rumor has it that AGENT Scott Boras employs more scouts to look at amateur talent than the White Sox!!! Something like spend money to make money!!!! Reinsdorf fails to get the concept.

    Why spend money in scouting and  the draft when you can throw 20 mil at Scott Linebrink?
