We came close but fell short of a sellout last night. A few thousand tickets do remain for tonight’s game (as well as Sunday), so if you are thinking about attending, go on-line now to purchase.
We will know sometime early this afternoon if Frank Thomas has to go on the disabled list with inflammation in his left ankle. If so, Ross will be added to the roster in time for tonight’s game.
Those insect bites on Jermaine Dye’s leg evidently came from a spider while the team was in Cleveland. According to Ken Williams, Dye’s leg looks "grotesque" from the multiple bites, which have become infected. He may still be available tonight depending on how he responds to medicine.
