White Sox Quotes of the Day: Ozzie Guillen, Toby Hall

New, comments

Ozzie has a new suspicion about the Twins and the Metrodome. He thinks during the final Twins at bats they flip a switch and a "wind-blast machine" comes on:

[Joe Cowley]

"Did you see how the flag was blowing in that last inning?"
And Ozzie's take on Ron Gardenhire arguing Sweeney's slide:
"Gardy's face gets really red. It looks like someone was choking him."

Rickey Henderson (48 now) would like one more crack at it:

"Seeing Roger come back, all the seed that it plants is ask me to come back one time. I'm going to look at it at the end of the year. I might come out with some crazy stuff, a press conference telling every club, 'Put me on the field with your best player and see if I come out of it.' If I can't do it, I'll call it quits at the end.

... I see Roger can come back and play. I can come back and play. They say I've done too much. What'd he accomplish? ... The players they put on the field nowadays, they couldn't make it in my day. They'd get sent back to Triple-A."

... Julio's [Franco] out there. I know I can play with Julio. You need to name a whole lot of players before you get to Julio. ... I just want a spring training invite. Most clubs said if I got an invite, I'd probably make their club, but (they) don't have a spot.

... I'm through, really. I'm probably through with it now. It's just one of those things. I thank the good Lord I played as long as I played and came out of it healthy. I took a lot of pounding.""

Plus Toby Hall wants to be back for the Cubs series (May 18-20). More on that inside.

Toby Hall who's expected to begin a rehab assignment at AAA-Charlotte sometime this weekend:

[Nathaniel Whalen]

"I'm hoping to be back (after) the homestand. Obviously, I have to get my legs in shape, but I know I'm not coming back here to play every day. Even when I do come back, I can do the same thing I'm doing down there, besides the at-bats."
Hall said his arm felt 90 percent healthy Tuesday, but trying to throw out a runner is different:
"I'm guessing that on that first baserunner, I'll probably double-pump or something, but I really don't know how I'm going to do it. That's why I know I'll have to get a couple of those to know myself."
