Ballantini @ CSN:

“He reminds me a little bit of Jim Thome,” Guillen said. “This guy strikes out 100-plus, walks 100-plus, that’s 250 times up without putting the ball in play, and still puts up a lot of numbers. How they do it, I don’t know.” … “I don’t expect anything different from Adam,” Guillen said. “You get on base, you’re going to give the team a chance to win. That’s why I’m putting him at the top [of the order], to give him more at bats and get him on base.”

Are you worried about your Spring Training numbers Adam?

“If I stressed out about it, I’d have been out of this game years ago,” Dunn said. “The beginning of the season is always tough—well, I say always, I’m going to try this year to change that, gol-ly—I’m not going to set myself up and say I’m going to start slow, but [whispers] ‘good chance.’” … “It’s not so much the homers; getting on base is No. 1 with me,” Dunn says.” If I can keep [my on-base average] .380-plus, that’s my No. 1 goal of the year. [Getting on base is] going to equal runs. If I get on 40% of the time, we’re going to score some runs.”

Want the breakdown on the battles for the last two roster spots?

Brent Ballantini has it. On Lastings Milledge:

And he’s a Kenny guy, right?

Well, Williams traded for Lillibridge just a few years ago, too. But do the White Sox see greater upside from Milledge—perhaps even to the extent where he could be a long-term possibility on the team if/when Juan Pierre or Carlos Quentin leave? Absolutely. Milledge has flashed five tools in the desert this spring.
