Today’s News

A Very Bright Outlook

As the official opening of White Sox spring training began today with pitchers and catchers reporting, there’s more excitement in Sox camp than at any time in recent memory due to a solid group of returnees and all of the key acquisitions in the offseason. We can pretty much assume that skipper Robin Ventura is thinking positive thoughts in the photo below.

As Robin said today, “I expect us to make the playoffs.”

Sox Note of Note

Sad news. Gary Woods, a current White Sox scout, passed away unexpectedly yesterday at his home in Solvang, California. Woods was a former Major League outfielder and began scouting with the Sox in 2008 covering the Southern California area north of Los Angeles.

Quotes of the Day

Chris Sale:

“We’ve got a team to fight back now…It’s a fun group of guys and there’s a big buzz, obviously. We’re ready to rock…My only goal is to win the World Series.”

Jeff Samardzija:

“I like where I’m at. But I’m not content with where I’m at. There’s still room to grow.”

GM Rick Hahn:

“We happen to have very high hopes. There’s a great vibe around here. There’s a level of confidence and expectations and even some swagger in terms of how guys are going about their business.”
