Zimmerman @ FG:

Gordon Beckham – Beckham had such a promising rookie year, but he has been a disappointment in 2010 and 2011. Two items really seem to be the cause of his struggles. First, he walk rate is at 4.1%, down from 9.5% just two years ago. Second, he has an IFFB% [Infield Fly Ball % (IFFB/FlyBall)] of 27.3%, second worst in the league behind Carlos Lee‘s 31.6%.

In other White Sox blogs, J.J. examines past Tuesday’s Phillip Humber start against the Yankee$ and the implications of the upcoming Tuesday’s Francisco Liriano start against the White Sox, and James asks ‘Are the White Sox unwatchable?’ and examines past Wednesday’s Bartolo Colon start against the White Sox.
