How great to end the regular season with a three-game sweep of the Indians in Cleveland? Thank goodness for our "scrubs." Last season, the Red Sox were the idiots, maybe "scrubs" is a good nickname for this year’s White Sox. No one seems to give us much credit or think we are very good, we just win 99 games to finish just one shy of the Cardinals for the best record in baseball.
Sorry to not post in a while, but things have been very busy since last Thursday. We have to prepare for hosting the Division Series. In our case, that means preparing information for the media, taking care of ballpark logistics, preparing credentials (which meant we had to plan in case we played Boston, Los Angeles or the Yankees), and then we produce the Postseason Media Guide overnight. This 200-plus page book is a great resource for the media (and us). But it is not easy to produce overnight. Bob Beghtol, our director of media relations, and his staff are busy working on it now. In 2000, we finished the book around 4 a.m. and got home to "sleep" around 6 am.
Hopefully, we do a little better this year.
We are working out early on Monday, 10 am. Afterward, Ozzie Guillen, our Game 1 starter and another player will meet with the media in the Interview Room here at the ballpark.
For anyone who works downtown, you might want to catch the rally at 12:30 at Block 37. Should be fun. I think they are hoping to play that new highlight video that was shown to great reviews last homestand.
Tuesday’s game on ESPN is at 3:07 pm and Wednesday’s game is at 6:07 central time.
We have a lot of proof-reading still to do, so I will try and check in with you later.
