    Well, I have to assume the rest of the division is absolute shite, as we are shite here in Cincy and yet somehow we sport a 34-22 record at this time.

    Our offense is carrying us, with an average of 5.16 runs per game. For what was once the most dominant division for pitching, things sure have changed.

    Evans was traded. Glenn isn't starting. Gilbert, Watson, Powers and Mikels are all under performing. Nobody in the division has really stepped up to fill those shoes.

    Watson's taken huge steps backwards the past couple of seasons, but Gilbert looks to be turning it around over his last few starts. I think the division had several teams peak at the same time, and now the top teams are all getting old. I only have a couple guys south of thirty on my pitching staff. The only thing keeping me in it is guys at the top of the order having better than usual years.

    The White Sox have been on a 16-3 run. And Justin cook has as many HRs thru 54 games as he had thru 142 games last season (22).

    It is good to see Anthony Evans is still at the top of his game. 7-2, 1.68 ERA with his new team.

    Re: 2074 News & Highlights

    My choice for top picks in the 1st rd of this year's draft:

    1. SS Charles Romero (#5 pick). I love the RA. I would have taken him over anyone else. I cannot remember the last time I was able to draft an elite RA SS. Has to have been real life years.

    2. SS Allen Burnham (#1 pick). Very good RA and elite BA. He'll hit some HRs too. A very good defensive SS that can hit is a rare find.

    3. 2B Roy Johnson (#3 pick). Elite DI and BA. Even CN too. Good SL as well. This guy will be a hitting fool! Could be great defensively at 1B. Not at 2B.

    4. P Booker Diederich (#19 pick). To me, the best looking pitcher in the draft. There really wasn't much, pitching wise, that I liked. The elite SY caught my eye. He was a definite steal at pick #19.

    5. CF Ronald Howard (#17 pick). Another late round steal. Elite RA at CF is always good. I like the elite SP as well.

    6. 2B Luther Acevedo (#2 pick). Elite RA and DI with near elite BA and good SL is hard to pass up. If he develops to his potentials, he'll be great. But he is 21 and has a long way to go. I was on the fence about whether to include him.

    He's carrying the team on his back in what's looking to be a fairly competitive Jack Buck Division this season. 4 teams above .500 and within 6 games of the lead.

    In this game Darryl Mikels becomes the 83rd pitcher in league history to reach the 3,000 strikeout mark. But he is only the 2nd White Sox pitcher to do so.

    Re: 2074 News & Highlights

    Big trade between the White Sox and Padres. We had to shuffle some players back and forth but the deal boils down to the White Sox receiving P Michael Gilbert, for the following players:

    LF Andrew Shepherd.

    P Zhekai Ho.

    P Marlin Moon.

    P Harold Vega.

    SS Bradford Brown.

    I did not think we could contend this season, but here we are. So we traded for Michael Gilbert to help our playoff push. At the start of the season we were able to sign some FA's that helped out quite a bit but our pitching has sucked. So Gilbert should help immensely.
