The Chicago White Sox have a special talent dominating Triple-A and a respected member of the media believes he should be in the MLB now.
The Chicago White Sox appear to have something special in their top prospect, Luis Robert. He is a sensational baseball player and he is absolutely dominating the Minor Leagues right now. He seemingly makes an amazing play or hits a ball 450+ feet every single night. It has caught the attention of a former coach of the White Sox and a current media member.
Ozzie Guillen is forever a legend for the White Sox as he managed them to a World Series title in 2005. It was one of the greatest years in the history of this team because he figured out a way to get the most out of the lineup that was given to him. He certainly knows the game of baseball and anything he says is something most people will listen too because of his resume.
Guillen now works for NBC Sports Chicago as a member of the White Sox pregame team. He gets paid to analyze all things related to the White Sox. On Wednesday night, Luis Robert hit a mammoth home run for Triple-A Charlotte as he often has since being called up to play for them. He dominates for that team and many people want to see him called up to the White Sox before the season is over.
One of those people is Ozzie Guillen. The World Series champion manager wants to see Robert on the South Side right now. He believes there is no reason to keep him down anymore, basically saying that nobody cares to see him in AAA anymore. He was doing the pregame with White Sox legend Frank Thomas who mentioned him as a September call up but Ozzie immediately responded with that he would rather it be right now.
There is really no wrong answer with this. The only thing is you wonder after a while how much Robert is actually learning from AAA ball anymore. He appears to be ready for the Major Leagues and a guy who knows what he’s saying in Ozzie thinks he should be up. It will be interesting to see what direction they go, but it is exciting to follow either way.
