Egbert Gone

Jack Egbert was claimed on waivers by the New York Mets today. I know a lot of people in the White Sox minor league organization were very high on Jack.

In two Major League appearances, Jack had a 27.00 ERA. Not much can be measured by two appearances and 2.2 innings worth of MLB work, but it appears that Jack may have become victim of the notorious "AAAA syndrome". This syndrome afflicts AAA stars who can't quite translate that success into Major League success.

Hopefully, Egbert's MLB experience was a fluke and he can move on to bigger and better things with the Mets. At least he won't be alone there. He can buddy up with Lance Broadway.

So long, Jack. Maybe you'll come back this way again.
