Quotes of the Day

Here’s what the Chicago media is tweeting from the first day of full-squad workouts. If you don’t follow these reporters, it would definitely be worth your while to do so.

@ESPNChiSox: Bonifacio was asked if he likes Jose Abreu and all his production: “Yeah, yeah, yeah.” #quoteofthespring

@scottmerkin: From @Micah_Johnson3: “You have to be confident but not arrogant. If you become arrogant, that’s when you lose your edge to work hard.”

@scottmerkin: Micah on Vince Coleman: “He’s already made some adjustments on my running game. I’m open ears to him.”

@ChiTribKane: White Sox 2B Micah Johnson is fluent in Spanish, has been studying it since elementary school. Surely helps with clubhouse communication.

@ESPNChiSox: Eaton said working with Vince Coleman is intense. Wanted to get out there immediately vs. a pitcher to try some base-stealing advice.

@ChuckGarfien: Adam Eaton on Adam LaRoche: “I’ve heard great things. He’s got a great beard. I think we’ll have a good set of beards this season.”

@CST_soxvan: Adam Eaton has Konerko card on locker, talks about leadership void. ‘Nobody can replace Paul’  

@ChuckGarfien: Gillaspie bulked up, quit chewing tobacco and wants to make sure he’s still got his strength at the end of the season.
