McCulloch Promoted, Thanks Club

Kyle McCulloch (left), the 2006 first round pick of the White Sox who spent the first part of the season in Great Falls, has been promoted to Class A Winston-Salem. Chicago GM Ken Williams spoke on the transaction: "Since Kyle was the only pitcher on Great Falls who could reach the plate and throw strikes, we decided to promote him to a level where he would face suitable competition. I don't know what to do about those other bums on the team, short of moving the mound up to little league distance."

McCulloch was not only excited about the promotion, but excited to move out of Great Falls. "I'm glad I don't have those cursed nickel Keno machines to tempt me anymore," he said. One aspect of Winston-Salem that doesn't match up to the Electric City is the Thirsty Thursday Club. "Those guys were top notch," McCulloch said. "They've got some jokers in this league who can't touch the Thirsty Thursday Club. There's no organization, no uniforms, and their heckles are terrible. I'd like to thank the guys in Great Falls for prepping me for the future. I firmly believe that if you can handle their rants, you can handle anything."

Club President Jared Smith seemed unimpressed by McCulloch's remarks. "That's our job," he said. "We're just contributing to their growth as professional ball players. If he makes it to the Show however, he better remember us when we're looking for some box seats at Comisky Park."

Comisky park is actually Comiskey Park after original White Sox Owner Charles Comiskey.

Actually it's U.S. Cellular field now. Sellouts. Nice loyalty to your original owner.
