Ozzie Guillen on the White Sox CF situation: "There is not a legit center field out there that we can look for,'' Guillen said. "We're trying to put the best guy there. The one thing about it, I'm begging those guys to start playing the way we think they can play. Not because I don't have patience on how they're playing, it's because I don't have the patience to try to figure out who is going to be the guy. Right now, that's our plans and I don't have anything different. It's funny, if we win the game, we have a good center fielder. If we lose, we need a center fielder, a leadoff guy, we need a reliever. We just lost one game, and all of a sudden everyone is panicking and asking what are we going to do, what we should do. "We're not going to win every game, but I expect a lot better things from Brian. If Brian doesn't do the job, somebody else will. Who? We got to figure out who it's going to be. I think it's about pitching and defense. We got to figure out the bullpen and get better. The guys we got here, we believe they can do it. But right now, I don't have no Plan B or C if Brian doesn't do the job. I want to see Brian's at-bats and see how that works The dilemma that is center field - Inside the White Sox

Chris Getz is "Plan B" at Leadoff

5

There's a new Plan B at the leadoff spot for the White Sox if Dewayne Wise doesn't perform against right-handed pitchers. It's Chris Getz, who batted leadoff occasionally at the University of Michigan but is currently targeted as the Sox's No. 2 hitter. Getz didn't bat leadoff in any of the Sox's first 36 exhibition games. "If that doesn't work, then Getz," manager Ozzie Guillen said. "I think Getz is going to get you consistently good at-bats, day after day. How much is he going to hit? Well, we're going to find out." Guillen reiterated he doesn't want to use Alexei Ramirez at the leadoff spot against left-handers, preferring to use him in an RBI spot. That could change only if Brian Anderson struggles against left-handers.
