Default Ozzie's thoughts heading into ST

I rarely start a thread here, but thought some of you would like to take a listen to this:

http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2011/02/...le-in-bullpen/

I thought there was some good stuff in here regarding his thoughts on Sale, the batting order, and his feelings about the Morel-Teahen thing (I think you can read between the lines with what he says on that).

The thing that I like is that he's saying that Rios-Dunn-Konerko are his 3-4-5 right now.

I was concerned when I was hearing Dunn as #3 earlier this offseason.

It depends what Rios you are getting. He was outstanding the first half of last season, but pretty bad the second half

Nice interview. Next time you get a chance with him, tell him the Sox fans want his kids to ****.

Since neither Dunn or Konerko are ideal #3 hitters, beginning the season with Rios there is a no-brainer to me. I'm hoping that both he and TCQ hit well enough that Ozzie can decide between the two.

The lineup Ozzie shared scares me, because Teahen is still in it.

Sale in the bullpen works for me.

He said Morel/Teahen maybe. At he had them batting 9th. Nothing really to be scared of.

Ozzie shared the lineup he has in mind too.Expect to see Gordon Beckham, Alex Rios, Adam Dunn, Paul Konerko, possibly Carlos Quentin, A.J. Pierzynski, Mark Teahan, and a couple other favorites on the lineup.
Huh? Who writes this crap, and does it get proof-read before being posted?

Totally against Sale in the bullpen. Just think its a short sighted move. He is probably our best reliever, probably better than Thornton honestly, but the kid has potential to be a truly top of the rotation SP. When you have a rotation full of 2s and 3s, having that true, game 1 type starter potentially in the mix is big. Just get this gut feeling wherever Sale goes is where his career is going to shake out. Happened in Texas with Feliz and happened in Boston with Paplebon.

Oh hey, we are possibly going to see TCQ and AJ in the lineup! I know of people being confused on whether to use 1 space after a sentence or two, but here comes 0!

And with his mechanics he is a shoulder injury waiting to happen.

Not "in the lineup"... ON the lineup.

I'm sure Ranger's interview was outstanding though.
