On Jacob Turner, Strasburg, Sizemore, Boesch and White Sox...

I haven't been to West Michigan to see Jacob Turner pitch yet, but really like his numbers. He has 51 strikeouts and just nine walks in 54 innings. That is truly impressive for a pitcher that young (barely 19) working against mostly older players.

- Scott Sizemore's career wasn't over because his first stint with the Tigers wasn't successful. Brennan Boesch's career wasn't made by his incredibly fast start. But I will say this about Boesch: He is a pretty good athlete with a good swing. It wouldn't surprise me if he bounces back and does some good things this season.

- Watching Stephen Stasburg last night, I've come to the following conclusion: He is that good. He has 75 k's in 54 innings. Wow.

- The White Sox have been a pretty a good road team this season, which is essentially why they are in first place in the American League Central. But West Coast trips tend to change that. We'll see if they hold it together this weekend in Oakland. They didn't last night in Seattle.
