Its early but Mitchell looks like a bust

Mitchell is playing for less than three weeks after being out for a whole year.

It's way too early to judge him a bust.

Have you ever thought about changing your username to 'The Cynic' or 'Doubting Thomas'?  They seem far more appropriate than 'Wishful Thinking'.  ;D  ;D  ;D

NO, probably no more so than you have to change yours to Andy McFailed  ;D ;D ;D

But then again you may be right about it being early to judge Mitchell. His game at LSU was based on speed and taking long counts and doing a lot of walking. INOW he had batting issues even in college. This injury hasnt cleaned up his deficiencies he has had. I believe even if he manages to make the big leagues it will be a very long journey and most likely wont be in a White Sox uniform.

Way to show em wrong Mitchell!

I didnt like that pick when they made it... but the sox love their two-sport players.

Big hopes for Tryace Thompson turning it up this year.

I loved the Mitchell pick.  He was looking great until he got hurt.  Speed power and patience.  Still think he makes it

He is going to be a big hit at the cell;



He's a vast improvement over the DiGiorno's folks.

I didnt really care for the pick. I didnt think he would ever hit MLB pitching. I still wonder. Eventhough I have serious doubts I do hope the kid isnt a bust. I am just not sure he can make an impact in the big leagues

not a ton of stuff to report on, we really have a lack of talent, but I still get into it, probably moreso than for our big league club anymore. Thanks

I'm pulling for him.  Still doubt that we'll ever see him up with the big club.
