Comments from Ozzie’s Pregame Meeting
On moving Buehrle back a day:
“Some pitchers can deal with it, some can’t.”
On going 7-4 against AL Central competition:
“Look at the past. We’ve haven’t had too many problems with teams in our division. It’s others, like Oakland, who have caused us problems. The AL is tough. Very tough.”
When asked what has been the best sign for the team this year, scoring runs or pitching?
“Attitude in the dugout. Attitude in the clubhouse, that’s what’s helped this club play the way it has. Consistency is a good sign for a ballclub.. So far, we’ve picked each other up. Guys have been there for their teammates.
“But that’s easy when you are playing well and winning. How are we going to play, how are we going to respond, when things get tough? Then I’ll see who and what I’ve got.”
Answer to a Fan Question today
Our last day in first place in 2007 came on 4/24 (11-8). We were 12-9 after a win on 4/27. I’ve forgotten most of the rest.
