Jose Contreras threw another bullpen today and reported no pain. He is set to go Sunday once he comes off the disabled list.
Don Cooper, Harold Baines, Joey Cora, Art Kusyner and Greg Walker have all agreed to terms on multiyear contract extensions, while Tim Raines and the White Sox will decide on his position at the end of this season, his first as our bench coach.
Hey, We have a Date
Not sure if folks are still enthused about the idea of readers from this site coming to a ballgame together as a group.
Well, if you still think this might be fun, we have reserved space for up to 50 for the White Sox vs. Royals game on August 15 (tried to get a date when college students could attend).
The deal is you get a ticket to the game (outfield), a pregame party in the patio (all you can eat and drink) and we will have a pregame event in the Conference & Learning Center with a front office rep or two. Cost is $54 per person.
If interested, call Dustin at 312-674-5186. First 50 responses, please. If fewer than that, we still we have fun.
Check out our release yesterday with information and recommendations for fans attending this weekend’s games. Gates open 2 hours before game time.
