Same Kanny hat for Darren Black, same black shirt for Brett Ballantini, and this pair comes back to chat on the Farm to talk Winston-Salem Dash on their weeklong wrap of the White Sox system.

Have you read Darren’s season review piece? Well, it is live alongside this podcast, so go get yourself some.

The Dash wasn’t the worst team in the system, but they did finish farther out of the race than any other White Sox. That, my friends, was no small task in 2021.

Here’s how we broke down the 43-76 Dash:

  • Coud Darren find something to say about the system MVP, José Rodríguez, that hadn’t already been said?
  • Luis Mieses and Harvin Mendoza reclaimed legit prospect status after early setbacks and demotions to Kannapolis. What do they need to do from here to stay on the radar?
  • What’s the proper temperature setting when it comes to excitement about Yoelqui Céspedes: scalding, hot, lukewarm, or cool?
