The four worst words in Chicago weather … cooler by the lake. I wonder if Lake Erie is any better. Will find out at 6 p.m.
Jose Contreras was optioned to Class AAA Charlotte earlier today and Jimmy Gobble was brought up to join the Sox in Cleveland. With Conteras’ departure, Clayton Richard will now start tomorrow’s ballgame and Mark Buehrle will pitch Wednesday.
Tonight’s starter, Gavin Floyd, was one of the guys who stuck around to work for several hours Saturday as our Volunteer Corps rehabbed two Boys & Girls Clubs.
At one point he came up to a staffer and admitted that he had painted outside the lines.
Re-assured that any messy paint job could be fixed, he went back to work.
Conscientious, isn’t he?
