White Sox | More On Raines Hiring

Updating a previous item, The Chicago Tribune's Dave Van Dyck reports new Chicago White Sox first base coach Tim Raines believes he was hired for his baserunning expertise, as the White Sox want to be a speedier team in 2005. "I think the Sox want to run more than last year," Raines said. "They also want to place an emphasis on running the bases, going around first base hard after a single, going from first to third, scoring from second. That can mean the difference in winning and losing games."
