White Sox Pitching Prospects

Postby 05worldserieschamps » Mon Jan 08, 2007 11:01 pm

Is it just me, or does it seem the White Sox are set for pitching for about another 15 years? They got Masset and Danks in the McCarthy trade, they have drafted pitchers Kyle MucCulloch and Lance Broadway in the last two drafts, both of which are doing quite nicely in the minors. Plus, in the Garcia trade, aquired Gavin Floyd and Gio Gonzalez. Floyd, scouts say is a late bloomer(much like current white sox jon garland). And Gonzalez is supposed to be a strikeout machine.

Do they have the best pitching system in the AL right now?
Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.

Maybe they win in quantity, but quality wise, I'll probably take the Twins.

Minnesota probably could give them a run for their money.

The Devil Rays and Dodgers have some good young arms.

The White Sox probably have the most quality pitching prospects that will have an impact this next season, but I think the Twins have a much better group for the years after. Another team that has a decent amount is the Dodgers with Kershaw, Elbert and Meloan to name a few.

I would tend to agree with the rest hat they certainly have the most good pitching prospects in the AL but the Twins would beat them in terms of quality arms. The one problem is that they don't have outstanding pitchers. Danks is the best of their young arms and outside of him there is only good 4s and 5s. Certainly they have the arms in their system to put together a quite solid, if unspectacular rotation in a few years. That's more than most teams can say though.

I would take Tampa Bay's pitching prospects in a second over the White Sox. Better yet give me Tampa Bay's whole system over anyone elses.

I don't know about it being better than every team's, but it certainly is loaded.
