Spring Training Game #34: White Sox @ Atlanta

The Sox go against the Braves at Turner Field (12:05 p.m.) on the final contest of Spring Training. Javier Vazquez starts for the Good Guys. Mark Redman (L) starts for the Braves. Aardsma, Masset, Sisco and MacDougal are also scheduled to pitch. There's no TV or radio coverage in Chicago (non-internet); the game is on MLB.TV and FSN South. Here are the lineups (Live Boxscore; 2006 MLB Gameday; 2007 MLB Gameday):

Sox: Podsednik, LF; Ozuna, 2B; Thome, DH; Konerko, 1B; Dye, RF; Crede, 3B; Cintron, SS; Anderson, CF; Molina, C

Braves: Johnson, K, 2B; Renteria, SS; Jones, C, 3B; Jones, A, CF; Pena, B, C; Francoeur, RF; Thorman, 1B; Wilson, DH; Langerhans, LF

What's AJ up to?

[Joe Cowley]

Pierzynski, who just happens to be a huge Florida Gators fan, has spent the last week trying to talk Thome into staying tonight in Atlanta so they can attend the Florida-UCLA Final Four game in the Georgia Dome.

The problem is that the Sox charter leaves right after this afternoon's game with the Braves, and there's a workout on Sunday morning at U.S. Cellular Field.

So what did the scheming Pierzynski come up with as a solution?

He told Thome he would provide the tickets for the game if Thome came up with the private jet to get them back in time.

As of Friday -- no deal.
