Quick midday update with some good news from the South Side.

First, the much anticipated return of Carlos Quentin is finally here. The White Sox activated Quentin today from the DL and optioned Brian Anderson to AAA Charlotte. Ironically, Quentin returns to Chicago in time to help his teammates this week in a big series against the Tampa Bay Rays…the same team the White Sox played in last year’s ALDS without Quentin. Needless to say, White Sox fans everywhere will hold their collective breath each time Quentin slams a line drive into the gap and rounds first on his way to second…

Also, congratulations to Jim Thome, who was named AL Player of the Week for his impressive surge of power that saw him recently generate 14 RBIs over a three-game span. As Hawk Harrelson might say, “Hell yes!”
