Quote of the Day

Reliever Daniel Webb (pictured above), who pitched a scoreless seventh inning last night, on improving his control from last year to this year (via Scott Merkin, whitesox.com):

“Everybody knows and I knew that I needed to quit walking people. It was kind of in my mind and I was going about it the wrong way. Instead of just saying, ‘Challenge a guy and throw a strike,’ I would say, ‘All right don’t throw a ball.’ So, I think that’s probably the biggest thing. My thought process of challenging hitters.”
