Random Notes …
While I have not posted for awhile, good to see your online conversation continued in my absence.
Ozuna, LF; Iguchi, 2B; Thome, DH; PK, 1B; Dye, RF; AJ, C; Crede, 3B; Uribe, SS; Anderson, CF. Vazquez takes the mound.
Way to go Sox fans … with this weekend’s ticket sales, we now have sold 2.68 million tickets for 2006, surpassing 1992 to become the second-highest ticket sales season in team history. The club attendance record of 2,934,154 was set in 1991, the first year of the new ballpark. It appears unlikely we can top that figure this year because the capacity of the ballpark is now 6,600 smaller than it was 1991 to 2003.
Tonight also is the 16th sellout of the year, two short of the club record established last season.
Tickets do remain for Wednesday game, as well as Friday and Sunday against the Houston Astros.
Cliff did throw a bullpen session yesterday under the supervision of Herm Schneider and Don Cooper. He appears on track to make a rehab appearance with Class AAA Charlotte on Thursday.
