Today's White Sox Quote of the Day comes from Greg Walker. Walk on the Sox being careful not to force Ryan Sweeney to become a power hitter:

[Mark Gonzales]

"You've got to be careful talking to guys about hitting for power. The last thing you want to do is create it. It just has to happen. But I have talked to him about being aggressive. He's one of these hitters who, when he's not aggressive, his mechanics fall apart. He starts feeling for the ball instead of driving it, and he does have power. You watch him take batting practice and it's something he's going to grow into. The least of our worries is how many home runs Ryan Sweeney is going to hit."

In other news, much to Mark Buehrle's chagrin, QuesTec will be back in the Cell this season.
