Nice article (http://whitesox.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/news/article.jsp?ymd=20060106&content_id=1291993&vkey=news_cws&fext=.jsp&c_id=cws), except that Merkin still thinks Owens is a CF.

Some quotes on the "leaving Venezuela early" issue:
My view on the whole thing is that myself and the White Sox agreed to disagree. My goal is to play in the big leagues for the White Sox, and that's the main reason I came home when I did -- to give myself the best opportunity to get ready. It wasn't that I just up and left.

Obviously, those are the guys who control the future and the rest of my life, so it doesn't make me feel great that they weren't happy. I just wanted to get ready for Spring Training. I know they wanted me to throw some more. But deep down, I know they understand my reasoning for leaving.
