The White Sox announced three recipients for their two minor-league awards on Tuesday.
*Luis Alexander Basabe: Co-player of the month after hitting .313/.400/.615 with 14 extra-base hits.
*Seby Zavala: Co-player of the month after hitting .315/.411/.616 with six homers at Birmingham, a notorious pitchers’ park.
*Michael Kopech: Pitcher of the month after posting a 2.14 ERA and striking out 29 batters to just seven walks over 21 innings at Charlotte.
Mind you, these awards aren’t necessarily the most scientific in nature.
The process has become poisoned once realized we were essentially taking a poll on who we wanted to get put on a conference call
