White Sox Quotes of the Day: Greg Walker

New, comments

More craziness on having Podsednik and Erstad hit first and second. Hitting coach Greg Walker:

[Scot Gregor]

"As good a job as Tadahito has done in the No. 2 hole, that's not his past history. Well, it is Darin Erstad's past history. I think there's something to be gained there. I've already talked to Darin about it, and he's excited about it."
Another diamond from Walker:

[Joe Cowley]

"When Scott [Podsednik] is on his game, he's one of the premier leadoff hitters in baseball. And they are very difficult to find. I mean, let's look around baseball and see who else is out there. There's not many on this earth that can do what he does."
Yep, the Arizona sun is strong.
Meanwhile, Uribe's attorney/agent, Martin Arburua, says Juan doesn't have to appear in another court hearing. I haven't heard that from any other source. Everything else says the "case" isn't closed and that the Torpedo Boat has another hearing in the middle of March.
In other news, Gavin Floyd practiced with the relievers' group while Nick Masset practiced with the starters, and Josh Fields worked only on third base and hasn't been mentioned as a candidate for an outfield position lately. BTW, today is National Silva Awareness Day.
Update [2007-2-23 21:13:10 by thewizardsofoz]:

The Torpedo Boat speaks.

Arburua, Uribes' U.S.-based agent, said that Uribe's attorney in the Dominican Republic told him that Uribe doesn't have to go back to the Dominican to attend another court hearing and that the case will likely be dropped. Also, Scott Merkin says "[Uribe reported] looking in much better physical condition than he did at the end of the 2006 season."
