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

[Joe Cowley]

"Yes, B.A. made the team, and we're going to stay with Molina as the backup catcher. Terrero did a tremendous job. We want to win right now, and the best guy to play right now is Brian. I told Brian what we expect from him. He's not platooning. He's going to see a lot of at-bats because there are a lot of lefties in this division. He's going to see a lot of playing time because of late moves. Late in the game, I might play him in center field. I might put Erstad at first base. I was the one shooting for [Anderson] to go back to the minor leagues to get more at-bats, but we're trying to win in 2007, and the best shot for that was him. I love Terrero, but B.A. is a true center fielder, and that's what we really need. That's why we kept him."
