Back Where It’s Warm
I flew back to Tucson late last night, forgetting my house keys and car keys in Chicago, of course. It’s good to be back where it’s warm.
My two main reasons for heading to Chicago were: 1. to check out the progress on the crews laying the inscribed bricks on the Champions Plaza at Gate 4 (it looks great) and 2. check in on the design group as they worked to complete the scorecard, first edition of the program and yearbook by Opening Day. Right now, is crunch time.
This weekend is our annual investor/sponsor trip, so plenty of Chicagoans will be down for Friday and Saturday’s games.
Tomorrow is our lone off day of the spring, so don’t count on much news out of here or this blog.
Ozzie spent the morning calling guys into his office in the first round of cuts in camp. It’s something he hates to do. Once everyone has been told, we’ll release the information to the public.
Bourgeios, CF; Cabrera, SS; Swisher, 1B; PK, DH; Dye, RF; AJ, C; Crede, 3B; Anderson, LF; Uribe, 2B. Vazquez returns to start.
Also pitching will be: Dotel, Carrasco, Logan, Egbert and Linebrink.
Friday vs. Oakland: Contreras
Sat vs. Cubs: Buehrle
Sunday at Ariz: Floyd
Monday at Mil: Vazquez
Tues vs. SD: Danks
Today’s game can be heard on WSCR Sports Radio 670 AM and seen on Comcast Sports Net in Chicago.
