First, Ozzie Guillen officially named Mark Buehrle the starter for Game 5 – if necessary – moving Javier Vazquez into the bullpen for today’s game and beyond. Also, Guillen said that the best thing Vazquez can do is forget about this season and move on. If he lets it linger, “then his career could be tough,” Guillen said.

Vazquez did talk to the media and said he was happy with the Sox, and the last thing he would do would ask for a change of environment.

“I don’t run away from things,” Vazquez said.

Other news was that Carlos Quentin took batting practice for the second consecutive day and had no setbacks. He could make the Sox have to at least start weighing a decision of his return if there is a Round 2 for this team.
