So, as 1 was “top 5”, what would the updated Top 5 look like. Is it still Colson, Vera, Colas, and Cespedes with the new guy? Has Ramos or Lenyn cracked the top 5? Romy, Jose Rodriguez, Yolbert not up there.


I’m curious about Cannon and his injury. How comfortable are you guys at Future Sox that this guy – who by my count gave up 26 earned runs over 26 innings over his last 5 starts – is healthy and/or represents a reasonable health risk?
