On the Third Day of Spring Training, He Rose Again

  • Carlos Quentin reported early to ST today.  And how does he look? Judge for yourself.
  • Also joining the club was Ramon Castro, who arrived late due to a family matter in his native Puerto Rico.
  • As expected, Ozzie says Andruw Jones will get most of the DH flexirotation against lefties, while Mark Kotsay will face most righties. Facepalm moment: "Guillen also didn't rule out Omar Vizquel batting leadoff as a DH against tough left-handed pitchers, meaning Juan Pierre would get a break."
  • Phil Rogers' wanton speculation on the rumored Roy Halladay trade: "The Blue Jays wound up with three blue-chip prospects for Halladay -- pitcher Kyle Drabek, catcher Travis D'Arnaud and position-challenged hitter Brett Wallace. That price translates to Tyler Flowers, Daniel Hudson and third baseman Brent Morel from the White Sox, and they might have had to add a fourth or even fifth player because Hudson isn't generally valued as highly as Drabek." So you're saying John Ely would have sealed the deal.
  • Gordon Beckham is in camp, too. Video of him working out at 2B.
  • Once again, if you have a question for 2009 top draft pick Jared Mitchell, submit it here. Otherwise, click the link to view the live chat with him that begins at 5:30pm.
  • White Sox Minor League Update is back on the right rail.
