Over the last two weeks, the White Sox have lost Nicky Delmonico, Leury Garcia and Welington Castillo for one reason or another, and now Matt Davidson hasn’t started for several days due to a balky back.
I wonder if all this is a test to see just how deep the White Sox will have to dig as they avoid calling up Eloy Jimenez until they clear the the Super Two threshold.
On a related note, here’s Jimenez hitting a go-ahead grand slam against Jackson tonight.

Down a run in the 9th, the Barons needed a clutch hit.
Of course it had to be @Lamantha21 to provide the fireworks.

*James Fegan wrote an excellent profile of Omar Vizquel:
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Winston-Salem Dash radio play-by-play man Joe Weil seemed pretty excited about the idea of an interview in Omar Vizquel’s office. Why? Because it always smells great in there.
Upon our arrival, Weil was presented with a colorful full-page sketch of his own face that Vizquel had completed and signed. It was full of orange hues, with purple for the shadows and detailed freckles on Weil’s face.
