Here’s Ozzie Guillen:

“I was thinking about Liner today. He’s gonna be out there tomorrow. Hopefully, we get him out there tomorrow, no matter how the game is. I have to get this guy to the mound. I have to. Even [if] people don’t want [me] to. We’re not gonna win without him. Or, it’s gonna be tougher, because we did win without him last year, he was out two months [because] he was hurt, but it’s gonna be tough for us to win without Liner and we got to him the ball back and the confidence we have for him.”

Ozzie Guillen on the Sox playing their last series on the Metrodome that’ll be razed in the offseason:

“Those piranhas, when you put them in another pond, they’re going to be a different piranha. They might be sardines.”

“Bolt, who turned 23 on Friday, showed up at the track for the medal ceremony wearing a Chicago White Sox cap, drawing an instant gathering.”

The fastest man on earth! Ozzie’s dreaming about Bolt stealing 200 bags.

Ozzie on Podsednik’s first inning pickoff:

“Scotty’s a veteran player; he’s been around a long time. But when that happens every week, you scratch your head, ‘What’s on his mind?’ I wish he had more concentration on the basepaths. He’s going to continue to play, but I hope that doesn’t happen again.”

Don’t chew and pitch

About a month ago, John Danks began experiencing circulation problems in his left index finger. He didn’t know exactly how it happened, but he wanted to make sure one of his bad habits wasn’t a contributing factor. So, the White Sox lefty kicked his routine of chewing tobacco. Tobacco use can be known to have a hand in circulatory problems. Since that time, the circulation issue has subsided. And while Danks still isn’t sure whether his tobacco use had anything to do it, he isn’t taking any chances.

According to manager Ozzie Guillen, Jose Contreras almost had to be pushed back from Wednesday to today [Friday] because he had some sort of scratch on his eye. How did it happen? ”His wife probably beat him up because of how bad he was pitching,” Guillen joked.

Gregor:

Rosters can expand Sept. 1, and Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said he only needs another catcher and an infielder.

Gregor thinks the players could be Flowers and Lillibridge. Remember, AJ gets 10-and-5 no-trade rights next mid-season.
