Spring Training Game #31: White Sox vs. Colorado: Thome and the Younglings

Cactus League play comes to an end as the Sox play the Rockies at Tucson Electric Park (2:05 p.m.). Jon Garland takes the mounds for the Good Guys. Jeff Francis starts for the Rockies. There is no Television or Radio coverage. Most of the players on the 25-man roster are leaving Tucson and heading to Birmingham for tonight's game against the Barons, our AA affiliate. Here are the lineups (Live Boxscore; MLB Gameday):

Sox: Owens, LF; Lopez, P, SS; Thome, DH; Fields, 3B; Rogowski, C, 1B; Sweeney, CF; Perez, K, 2B; Kelly, RF; Smith, C

Rockies: Taveras, CF; Matsui, 2B; Atkins, 3B; Helton, 1B; Holliday, LF; Baker, RF; Tulowitzki, SS; Mabry, DH; Iannetta, C


Today's White Sox Quotes of the Day come from Boone Logan. Boone on not making the team:

[Scot Gregor]

"We traded for some guys, and you're not going to trade for guys and then send them to Triple-A. So that already put me in a hole before I got to spring camp. I didn't let it bother me, though. ... I'm not disappointed because I knew it was coming. I never think negatively, but you can figure it out. I kind of knew I wasn't going to make it.
And Ozzie's reasoning:
"Well, it was hard. We went through several meetings. We had six meetings in the last three days and phone calls during the game or after the game. But the way we looked at it, we needed someone in the bullpen where the guy can go 2 (innings) or 2 and some change if we need him. Boone Logan will be back with the White Sox, and hopefully when he gets back here, he will be here for good."
