ANAHEIM, Calif. – Former Sox pitcher Jon Garland has never been a big fan of the media, so when he found out about “Dollgate’’ last week, and the fact that it was reported that the White Sox had two blow-up dolls set up in the Toronto visiting clubhouse, well, it was just another opportunity for him to speak his mind.
“I think it was a big deal,’’ Garland said Monday. “I personally felt nobody needed to write about it. This is our home, our clubhouse. I feel the job of you guys is to report on the game. I don’t think anything seen or heard in the clubhouse needs to be written about. And if you have a problem that’s going on in here, you don’t have to walk through the doors. You don’t have to see it. You have to understand when you walk through those doors, you’re coming into our office. It is what it is.
“I feel privacy has been taken away from us.’’
