The Sox host the Rangers today at Tucson Electric Park (3:05 p.m.). Mark Buehrle takes the mound for the Good Guys. Adam Russell is also scheduled to pitch. Kameron Loe starts for the Rangers (Loe hasn't allow a run this spring). The game is televised on CSN but there is no radio broadscast. Here are the lineups (Live Boxscore; MLB Gameday):

Sox: Podsednik, LF; Erstad, CF; Thome, DH; Crede, 3B; Iguchi, 2B; Perez, 1B; Hall, C; Uribe, SS; Anderson, RF

Rangers: Kata, 1B; Hairston, CF; Young, M, SS; Byrd, LF; Botts, DH; Cruz, RF; Vazquez, 2B; Stewart, C; Fox, 3B

Today's White Sox Quote of the Day comes from Ozzie Guillen. Ozzie on the Torpedo Boat:

[Mark Gonzales]

"Uribe is a heck of a ballplayer. The bad thing is when he's lazy. When he starts thinking that people don't like him, they don't care about him, and then he puts himself in a bad position. Sometimes he doesn't focus and doesn't concentrate enough every day [which gets] him in trouble. His ability is so good, he has survived all the mistakes he made."

Brian Anderson is scheduled to get a rare start in right field and hit ninth. The White Sox are watching how Anderson adjusts to a utility role, the job he most likely will have if he breaks camp with the team.
If Brian doesn't get the CF job, would you prefer him have a utility role with the Sox or be starting for the Knights?
