Josh Phegley got the Gatorade bath. The happy beating from his teammates. And a special something Gordon Beckham had learned from A.J. Pierzynski.

They're calling it "Phegley Phever" on the South Side of Chicago. Josh Phegley is off to a fast start since his Major League debut earlier this month (he's hit safely in nine of his 12 starts with three homers and 10 RBIs).

Let's Quit Lollygagging: It's Josh Phegley Time

I will admit it, I was wrong.  During the off-season I stood by my feeling that the White Sox should part ways with an aging AJ Pierzynski in favor of making Tyler Flowers the full time catcher.
