A guy from work said that he saw on some schedule for the Taste that some Sox players would be there today.

Kind of strange since I thought the team would be traveling to Detroit. Anyone know anything about this?

Just saw this schedule he is talking about, and it has the Sox being there at 11:30 today.

2-2:30 p.m. Southpaw

Wait a second! That might not be enough time for Southpaw to catch the plane to Detroit!

That's cool ! Last year, we went the Monday before July 4th (June 28), which was also an off day. They had just taken 2 of 3 from the Cubs. Had my picture taken with Bill Melton and Minnie. Joey Cora was there too. Talked to Beltin' Bill for a minute, and he was very nice. When he saw me holding my infant son in his little Sox uniform, he got up from behind the table to take the picture with us, and shake my hand.

Last year Miguel was scheduled to be there, but he was traded the day before. It was just Loaiza and Southpaw for the current players session.

The line was real long-compared to last year when you could almost walk up and meet the players. We are a hot commodity-like the weather out there today

Um. You must be talking about me.

Us employees aren't encouraged to ask for autos...so we try to embark on any opportunity we come across.

If you went to the 5/20 Sox-Flubs game, then Yes. I was talking about you.
I go to way too many games. I start noticing sox/bulls/cell/united center staffers on the streets.....
