I have no qualms with this promotion really. Morel is a pretty solid prospect and very well rounded. Exceptional makeup too. He doesn't have any glaring holes in his game like many of the Sox other prospects. I'd like to see him take more walks, but that's about it. He's never going to be a power hitter.

Let him make the AA All Star Game, and increase his trade value, for example. Or let him make Birmingham [marginally] watchable until reinforcements are promoted from A or demoted from AAA.
This is the White Sox, if you hit at the minor league level you get promoted to the next level, it doesn't matter if you only hit for ten days, or that you field the ball with your face, or that the only thing you know about base running is that it is OK to over run first base, if you can hit it's all that matters.

I take it that this is not something that has changed under Buddy Bell?

Is the problem with the minor league system Bell, Kenny, ownership or all three?

Or let him enjoy being a STAR @ AA for a little while longer, while letting Viciedo get a few more innings @ 3rd base in Charlotte. [/EDIT]
FWIW, Viciedo has only played 9 games at 3B this season, as opposed to around 40 at first. We can pretty safely say, I think, that Dayan Viciedo is now a first baseman.

I just don't see what the rush is i guess .. i think that they move guys up way too fast these days .. it appears as if we might have some down years coming, so make sure that he is ready to face big-league pitching and is able to adjust to the speed of the game at the top level .. i wish Beckham would have had more time down there ..
