Media Training

All of our minor leaguers took part in media training sessions this morning.  In addition to talking to our media relations staff and watching a video from MLB, Ozzie Guillen, Paul Konerko, Jim Thome and one of our beat writers took part in educating our minor league players on the role of the media in our game, the media needs and the best way to make the relationship between the media and a clubhouse work.  In the afternoon, we do a version in Spanish for the Latin American players in our system.

Heading home tomorrow night and can’t wait to arrive in Chicago.

Can’t Wait for the Home opener
Thanks for the contiuous updates. Take care GO WHITE SOX

The updates were great! After the last two days there, you’ll be ready for the rain here:)
Thanks for the behind the scenes reports.

Go Sox!!!!

There’s just one thing that was missing from the media training session…the minor league players won’t be facing anybody like the Weathervane (aka America’s Sweetheart),Jay…or the suddenly humanistic Rick Telander or Greg Couch or any of the other barracudas who inhabit the press section at the Cell…what they’ll get from the papers in the sticks is MILD compared to what they would get if they made the big time…try showing the same video to the barracudas to show them how to deal on a human basis with these people…I know that most of them,such as Thome,Konerko,AJ,J Dye,Erstad,Contreras,Garland, Buehrle,etc.,in addition to Ozzie, have to have grown a thick skin to put up with the abuse by these JERKS who are looking to become the story behind the story…some of the ink-stained wretches should be educated as well…
By the way,Scott,now that the barracudas will be separated from the PBP booths,will the booths still be wired in to hear the official pronouncements? I know that with Brother Rosenberg,it doesn’t take much to hear “WILD PITCH,REPEAT,WILD PITCH !!!”…the last four rows of the lower deck in the past could attest to that…

Oh,well,that bridge will be crossed in nine days…

Safe trip back to the Big City to you,Mr.R…and have fun getting ready to start the engines for ’07…

The rest of you “Chicken Littles” I would like not to hear from until it is absolutely necessary…
