From his 4/14 Q&A:

Q: Addison Reed

Why would the White Sox NOT try him as a starter? He’s been relieving so far this season at Low-A Kannapolis. Why set his ceiling so low? Yes, he probably has a better chance of making an impact in the majors as a reliever, but why not try him as a starter first and shift him to the pen if things don’t work out? Especially in a system so devoid of pitching talent.

A: well actually I agree with you totally, but they didn’t ask me.


Q: Trayce Thompson

Will he ever be more than a Ryan Harvey clone.

A: probably not

I’m not a big Thompson guy.
