Scott Podsednik excited about White Sox callup

47

Scott Podsednik said he was thrilled to learn he was getting called up by the White Sox from Class AAA Charlotte. "It was exciting," he said Thursday on ESPN 1000. "As athletes and professionals, we all want to play in the big leagues and play on that biggest stage. It was exciting to talk with [Charlotte manager Chris] Chambliss [on Wednesday] and get the word that the big club is interested in bringing me back." He said he hasn't talked to anyone with the Sox about his new role. "I never talked with anybody from the club about that yet," he said. "I flew from Charlotte to Dallas last night. I don't know the role. I don't know exactly what I'm walking into, but I'm prepared either way."

Ozzie Guillen on the White Sox CF situation: "There is not a legit center field out there that we can look for,'' Guillen said. "We're trying to put the best guy there. The one thing about it, I'm begging those guys to start playing the way we think they can play. Not because I don't have patience on how they're playing, it's because I don't have the patience to try to figure out who is going to be the guy. Right now, that's our plans and I don't have anything different. It's funny, if we win the game, we have a good center fielder. If we lose, we need a center fielder, a leadoff guy, we need a reliever. We just lost one game, and all of a sudden everyone is panicking and asking what are we going to do, what we should do. "We're not going to win every game, but I expect a lot better things from Brian. If Brian doesn't do the job, somebody else will. Who? We got to figure out who it's going to be. I think it's about pitching and defense. We got to figure out the bullpen and get better. The guys we got here, we believe they can do it. But right now, I don't have no Plan B or C if Brian doesn't do the job. I want to see Brian's at-bats and see how that works The dilemma that is center field - Inside the White Sox

Dewayne Wise Does Not Subscribe to Greg Walker's Back-of-the-Baseball-Card Theory

"I just pretty much blow stuff like [well-founded criticism] out the window to be honest with you. That’s where it belongs. Everybody has their own opinion and I’m not one to let that get me down. I know how [manager] Ozzie [Guillen] and my teammates feel about me, how they have confidence in me.’’ "I guess they’re looking at previous years, or previous times where I was put out there on this level,’’ Wise said. "You know, 2000 or 2002, where they’re just looking on the back of my baseball card. It’s 2009 now, it’s not 2000, and I could care less what negativity people want to throw my way. I feel like I’m ready. "It might not have happened as quickly I was wanted it to, but now I’m ready.’’
