But Guillen also said he would like to see Hudson stay as a starting pitcher in the minor leagues rather than pitch out of the bullpen with the Sox “in case something happens with the boys.” That would be in reference to one of the Sox five scheduled starters this season.

Here’s what they have to say on David Holmberg:

What he needs to improve: Without having a solid stat base yet, I’m going to say fastball velocity.  Of course this is difficult to predict and harder to do, but at 6’4″ he should be able to throw harder than the high 80s.  Diamond Futures said “Had Holmberg had a fastball that was a few ticks higher than the Hi-80s that he typically throws, he would have been a top half of the first round talent.”  He has the ability to become a top tier prospect, let’s see it.

Anyway, one of the tried and true sabermetric whipping boys will be manning the outfield and leading off for Ozzie Guillen’s White Sox. We know that Ozzie values looking like you are trying hard above things like getting on base or having a stronger throwing arm than Kathy Griffin (sorry, that’s the face that happened to be on the television when I looked over to fill in this blank). So, Pierre should enjoy a full season as a crappy leadoff hitter who will prove a nice source of steals, runs, and a hollow, but weighty .300-ish batting average.

Cowley:

”The only difference you’ll see in April this year is I’m going to try to bunt a little more,” Ramirez said through an interpreter. ”I need to get it out of my mind that it’s too cold and just play the game, see what happens. I feel like I have the experience now; I know what to expect. That’s also going to help.”
