Quote of the Day

Robin, when asked if he would have been a hitting coach had he not become a manager:

“…It’s not an easy job, I know that. Everybody’s got a different body and different way of trying to get themselves to hit…but I don’t know where I would have ended up (as a coach). I know it wouldn’t have been baserunning, I know it wouldn’t have been that,” he said with a chuckle.

Tomorrow’s Schedule

White Sox vs. Royals at Kauffman Stadium, Kansas City (1:10, CT, WGN) as the Sox go for a three-game sweep in the final game of the 10-game road trip. Starters: RHP Dylan Axelrod (3-4, 4.39) for the Sox, RHP James Shields (2-6, 2.72) for K.C.

Sox Note of Note

Highly-touted Sox pitching prospect Erik Johnson has been promoted to Class AAA Charlotte from Class AA Birmingham. The righthander recorded an 8-2 record with a 2.23 ERA, three complete games and 74 strikeouts in 14 starts with the Barons.

Did You Know…

…that the Sox’s first-round draft pick, shortstop Tim Anderson, collected two hits, two RBI, scored three times and stole a base in Class A Kannapolis’s 12-2 win last night over Augusta? It was Anderson’s second game since joining the Intimidators.
