Quade happy with effort from team

CHICAGO -- White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said he hasn't seen the "fight" in his team. Cubs manager Mike Quade Thursday said he's happy with the effort he's gotten from his players.

"I don't know what's going on on the South Side and it's not my place to get involved in that," Quade said when asked to comment on Guillen. "[The Cubs players] haven't, they didn't last year, and I don't think it's in their nature. That's unfortunate [with the White Sox]. I'm happy with the effort we're getting here."

Quade said if he saw any lackadaisical approach, he'd be concerned, but that hasn't happened. And what about Guillen's comments?

"Ozzie's always worn it on his sleeve -- that's what he does," Quade said. "He's probably more vocal in that regard than I am. If he's upset, you usually don't have to sneak around to figure it out.

"We're on different sides of town and different people," he said.
