MILWAUKEE - Manager Ozzie Guillen continued making sure he would be getting a warm welcome from the Wrigley faithful when the Sox play there next, again expressing his feelings about the "rat-infested'' Cubs ballpark on Friday.
"You asked the wrong guy about Wrigley field,'' Guillen responded, when asked by a local Milwaukee reporter about playing at Wrigley and old County Stadium. "I'd rather play on the moon than Wrigley Field.''
News on Konerko
After receiving a second shot in the last three months in his chronically injured right thumb, Paul Konerko said that he would be "surprised'' if he wasn't back in the starting lineup for Saturday's game with Milwaukee.
Guillen wasn't going to hold his team captain to that, but did say that Konerko was in the plans as far as the starting lineup went for Game 2 against Milwaukee.
"I'm not going to say he's playing [Saturday] because maybe he can't,'' Guillen said. "But the way he sounds, we're going to see what he can do. He's going to try to play.
"PK knows how he feels because he's been through this for three years. He knows when he feels good, when he feels bad. He knows when he gets up in the morning, 'Wow, it's a battle,' because he's sore. But he has to deal with that for the rest of his life, I guess.''
