Link-O-Rama: Sox prepping Beckham for 3B?

May 29, 2009, 2:28 PM EDT

* Gordon Beckham played primarily shortstop at Double-A, but moved to third base for his final game there and stayed at the hot corner last night in his Triple-A debut.

I’ve been assuming that the White Sox view Beckham as the long-term
answer at second base and they’ve gotten the AL’s third-worst
production from the position, but perhaps they’re more interested in
ditching third baseman Josh Fields, who’s hitting .229/.293/.314 with
poor defense.

* Chris Davis is striking out more often than any player in baseball
history and he’s hitting just .203/.259/.456 in the process, so the
Rangers are running out of patience.
Davis is batting .368 with 12 homers in 87 at-bats when he makes
contact, but he’s whiffed in an amazing 41.7 percent of his plate
appearances.

* Cecil Cooper’s job might be safe for a while longer, but the Denver Post reports that Rockies manager Clint Hurdle is “on borrowed time.”

* In case you haven’t heard, the Matt Wieters Era begins tonight in Baltimore. Based on the hype, he should have the Orioles in first place by Monday.

* After being part of umpire Todd Tichenor’s ejection-fest yesterday afternoon, Red Sox manager Terry Francona “was examined by emergency medical technicans to check on his blood pressure.”

    Being smaller is no sin, if everybody else around you is taller, it is obvious you would wish to look taller as well.
