BAD radio with Wilkerson:
1Q - Dirk?
A - He's good.
2Q - Are all these cortizone shots normal for you? What's going on?
A - Everyday activities make it hurt, but it loosens up come game time and swinging a bat doesn't hurt. Shots are to lessen the soreness - feels fine today, ready to go tonight. All due to normal wear and tear according to Brad - constant swinging of a bat takes a toll on players.
3Q - How did the grand slam feel? Real good, especially because it won the game and considering his night was going sorta dismally up until that moment. Was just trying to get the ball to the outfield to score the guy from 3B - got lucky.
4Q - Rheinecker's performance?
A - Pitched great. All his pitches were working. We need a fifth starter to step up and perform.
5Q - Good pitching contagious?
A - Yes, thinks the staff will tune it up in the coming weeks due to the strong leadership amongst the pitchers and a desire to match good performances.
6Q - When does the team turn serious about winning this season? [or something like that - I was typing]
A - We feel like this team is special, and we need to take advantage now of other teams' stumbling.
7Q - Your homer total's starting to rise, hitting coming around?
A - Hitting coaches have helped pull him out of his slump. Pat on the back to them.
8Q - White Sox a tough test?
A - Garland has struggled recently and is due to improve - could be tough tonight, and the Sox hitters are scary.
