ARLINGTON, Texas — Gametime temperature was in 87 Monday night for the White Sox’ series opener against the Texas Rangers at Globe Life Park, with Tuesday’s forecast for hotter. That’s a good weather forecast where Jose Abreu comes from.
“This is the kind of weather I like to play in,’’ Abreu said. “For Latinos, this is our kind of weather.
“It makes you feel more comfortable [hitting] because you are warm. It’s not like in Chicago where you have to battle the cold weather.’’
Abreu had hit safely in 11 of his previous 12 games, hitting .367 to raise his average to .252 going into the S
“I feel more comfortable at home plate the last two weeks and my swing is on time,’’ he said. “I feel very good right now about my offense.’’
Abreu is also having more fun than he’s had in his first two seasons with the Sox.
“It’s completely different,” he said. “Beginning in the clubhouse. We’re having fun with each other and we’re just enjoying the game. Anytime you’re with the guys, whether it’s here, on the flights or on the field we’re having fun and it’s a joy to be around each other. That’s a huge difference.’’
