White Sox purchased the contract of 3B Dallas McPherson from Triple-A Charlotte.
McPherson was once a top prospect in the Angels organization but he hasn't played in the majors since 2008. He has battled injuries throughout his career and is now 30 years old. McPherson has smacked 110 homers with a .599 slugging percentage in 379 games at Triple-A, but struck out 511 times over that span. He'll be a bench bat with the White Sox until Mark Teahen returns from the disabled list.

McPherson phever strikes again!!!

I literally had to look up who was playing 3B for the White Sox. Too bad McPherson won't get a chance to play or I would take a flyer. Speaking of taking a flyer, Eric Thames has been called up.

I wonder how many people saw that Brian McCann was not starting today and took him out of their lineup. lucky I didn't. 2 HR off the bench today.
last weekend I knew McCann would not start Saturday during the day after a night game and having an open roster spot I picked up Ross. knew there was going to be a day game today but didn't have an open roster spot today.
good for me.
however I also did not start Wandy Rodriguez today. he usually pitches a lot better at home than on the road, so my plan for him this season was only start him at home. missed out on 8 shut out innings. #ohwell

I guess the one bright spot of the Twins being the worst team in baseball is that it won't be long before I won't have to be shoulder to shoulder with some dude at Target Field.
