Sox Notes of Note

RHP Nate Jones, who has been dealing with a strained glute, is scheduled to pitch on Saturday vs. the Diamondbacks at Camelback Ranch-Glendale…if you look close enough at the photo below you can spot Paulie taking practice swings in the bullpen while the Sox battled the Mariners. And this was after he played in the game, delivering a single in three at-bats.

Quote of the Day

Former major-league pitcher Brian Bannister, son of ex-White Sox lefty Floyd Bannister, on “Mr. Nice Guy” Jim Thome, who is currently working in the Sox front office:

“Thome is my favorite. He’d hit a bomb off you and then tell you after the game it was a “tough pitch” #gentlegiant

White Sox will suck again and as much as I loved Ventura as a player he has zero heart and pulls starters way too early. Still love the Hawk. Hawk is the only reason to watch Sox games
