Wil Myers uses his off day to buy clothes, find an apartment

24 Comments

I always wonder about the logistics of a player getting called up mid-season. Where do they live? How do they get their crap delivered to them? How does all of that work.

Marc Topkin’s story about Wil Myers sheds a bit of light on it: you wait until your first off-day and then scramble. Myers is going to spend today trying to get an apartment and buy som clothes.

Now: someone tell me where the players who are perpetually on the Triple-A-Majors shuttle live and what they do for cars and stuff.

White Sox manager Rick Renteria was taken to the hospital before Monday night’s game in Minnesota against the Twins after complaining about lightheadedness, Dan Santaromita of NBC Sports Chicago reports. Renteria underwent testing which reportedly didn’t turn anything alarming.

Bench coach Joe McEwing is managing Monday’s contest, a makeup of a postponed game from April 15, in Renteria’s place.

The rebuilding White Sox entered Monday’s action 46-77. They have gone a combined 113-172 (.396) with Renteria at the helm. However, the organization has one of the game’s most highly regarded minor league systems in the game, so Renteria’s squad certainly could be a contender in the near future.
