The best place for that development might just be feasting on inferior pitching, where he has more margin for error, as opposed to at a higher level in a home park that tends to suppress power.
Understood. The fact that Regions Field plays large and suppresses home run totals is exactly why I don't put much stock in the home run totals for any White Sox prospect at the AA level. As long as they hit for decent average and lots of doubles at Birmingham, then I'm willing to see if some of those doubles turn into homers in Charlotte.
The universe is the practical joke of the General at the expense of the Particular, quoth Frater Perdurabo, and laughed. The disciples nearest him wept, seeing the Universal Sorrow. Others laughed, seeing the Universal Joke. Others wept. Others laughed. Others wept because they couldn't see the Joke, and others laughed lest they should be thought not to see the Joke. But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
