Quote of the Day
Todd Frazier, with 38 homers and 95 RBI heading into the weekend, has a chance to reach the 40-100 plateau for only the 11th time in White Sox history. He talked about why he chose to fly with the team to Cleveland instead of making the short trip home from Philadelphia to Tom’s River, N.J. for yesterday’s off day.
“I’m not staying at home tomorrow because I want to stick with the team and finish strong with the team. In these last games, let’s keep that mindset going of you have to battle. I want to get my numbers up, yes. And I want to win games.’’
