2011 csd Preview – Tyler Flowers

I know…I know. I have already made a preview card of Tyler in his Charlotte Knights uniform which he will be wearing to start the season. Why make another with a team that he won’t even start with? The answer is that I got to see him play a couple games this summer. If he can keep that going I don’t see how he sits at Triple A for too long. I know that the Sox have two catchers and a DH so he would not get to play, but the kid might just be coming around. (more…)

2011 csd Preview – Lucas Harrell

Lucas was one of the good guys I met in Indy last summer. Many of the Knights players were kind enough to interact with the fans, and sign autographs for them. Lucas had just had a tiring side session as you can probably tell by the picture. He stayed later then any of the players though making sure all the autographs were taken care of. I was happy to see that he was called up by the Sox not too long after I saw him playing for Charlotte. (more…)

2011 csd Preview – Jordan Danks

Jordan is the brother of current Sox pitcher John Danks. Jordan currently plays for the Charlotte Knights of the International League. He is one step away from joining his brother on the big club. That is a big step though, and one that he has been trying to make for a couple of years. (more…)

1985 Donruss – Tyler Flowers

Minor League Monday concludes with this card of Tyler Flowers. I wasn’t going to post another card tonight, but I liked this one so much I had to get it out. I had two pictures that I was debating on for the 2011 preview card of Tyler that I posted earlier tonight, but this one was right there with them. I have spent some time at parks trying to get just this picture. Only a couple of times have I gotten it this good. I actually did it on the second try as well. It is harder than you think to get the ball hitting the mitt. I love cards of catchers so what would another one hurt. (more…)

2011 csd Preview – Tyler Flowers

Here is another Charlotte Knight card in the preview set. Tyler has been a prospect that we have all been hoping will bust out at anytime. Actually I think that they White Sox have been hoping for that themselves. I think that the original plan was to have Tyler as the full time catcher right now. Signing A.J. this off season I think was a sign that they don’t exactly have a lot of faith in him right now. (more…)

2011 csd Preview – Rich Dotson

Rich has been featured on this site before. I met Rich along with Carlton Fisk before my first White Sox game in 1985. Rich was actually the first autograph I ever received¬† from a player. I have met Rich the last two seasons while hitting the road to see the Knights play. I had a good conversation with him in Louisville in 2009. Last season I was just content with getting a couple of pictures for the set. (more…)

2011 csd Preview – Stefan Gartrell

Stefan is a player that I have learned a lot more about the last few days. During the Sox broadcast against the Cubs Friday Hawk had nothing but good things to say about the young outfielder. During that game he seemed to be the only offense the White Sox had early on as well. I didn’t pay too much attention to him when I saw him play for Charlotte last season, but I may pay a little more this season. (more…)
