Today's White Sox Quotes of the Day come from our fearless leadoff hitters. Tinkerbell:

"I think Erstad and I are going to work well together, with me hitting one and him hitting two, or him hitting one and myself hitting two. We're both pretty decent bunters, we've both played both of those positions before, we both understand each other and been communicating pretty well up to this point on that 1-2 punch. I think we're going to work pretty well together."
Peter Pan:
"Everything looks great on paper, but we have an opportunity here to be very successful. We have an opportunity to score a lot of runs and be on base a lot for the guys behind us. That's why I'm here."
Unfortunately it's not those two only. Chief Hitting coach Greg Walker:
"I think it's very intriguing to have those two guys, two leadoff hitters, in the 1-2 role. One thing I'm already starting to see happen is the two of them feeding off one another. Both got experience in that role, and I think Darin is going to be good for Scottie."
Mercy...
