Closing the Series with the New York Yankees

alexeiMorning Kids,

It’s the final in a three game series with the New York Yankees and to be honest I am glad it is over in light of everything that has gone on. I am sorry for OUR boys who have had to deal with all of this on their first series home.

My SHOUT OUT today goes to the White Sox Bat Boys – you guys just ROCK. I never knew you guys had so much to do during a game. Have a super home stand.

Would like to send a #chisoxsorority WELCOME to our new LHP Charlie Leesman who will start in-game two of the double-header on Friday

Grab a drink and see you at the top of the inning
