Ozzie Guillen told reporters prior to the game that left fielder Carlos Quentin was likely out the next two games or so but might be available to pinch hit.
Ozzie was complimentary of Jose Contreras:
“He did just what he needed to do,” Guillen said, indicating that Contreras likely would make another start at Class AAA Charlotte and that no plans were imminent for his return. “When he comes back, maybe we should wear Triple A uniforms if that helps him,” Guillen quipped.
“I don’t remember a trip that was that ugly,” said Guillen. “We found just about every way to lose a game.”
While admitting that the team was embarrassed by the performance, Guillen stressed that the club’s struggles weren’t about effort.
“We’re playing hard,” he said. “We all know it’s our responsibility as a team to play better.”
