Split Squad Friday
Friday, March 7, 2008
Groundskeeper Roger Bossard is beside himself this morning after "his" UCLA Bruins (and you thought they were John Wooden’s) beat Standford last night.
To Steve Stone and Ed Farmer who broadcast their first game togther today on WSCR Radio 670 AM.
We sent a pretty potent lineup to Tempe today for that game:
Swisher, CF; Ramirez, SS; Konerko, DH; Dye, RF; AJ, C; Crede, 3B; Uribe, 2B; Eldred, 1B; Wise, LF. Broadway pitching.
At home vs. the DBacks it is:
Ozuna, LF; Cabrera, SS; Thome, DH; Fields, 3B; Liefer, 1B; Anderson, LF; Negron, RF; Lucy, C; Bourgeois, CF. Masset pitching.
We are a little banged up right now with some nicks … hurting are Carlos Quentin, Jerry Owens, Scott Linebrink, Gavin Floyd (flu) and Toby Hall. Nothing is serious, but with two games today, we’re a little thin.
RV in the House
Robin Ventura came to camp for a few days to hang out and see a few friends. I was giving him a hard time yesterday trying to get him to put on a uniform. We’ll see if I can wear him down.
Josh Fields and Jerry Owens are shaving their heads today to support the St. Baldrick’s campaign against cancer. Pat Elwood from FOX 32 is down to film the shaving. Owens has grown quite the distinctive Afro, so he’ll look funny bald.
"I figure I can just let it grow all season then," said Owens.
