Quade interested in fate of Sox coaches

SAN DIEGO -- Mike Quade is keeping tabs on the changes with the White Sox from far away, but the Cubs' manager admits he's more focused on Ozzie Guillen's coaching staff.

"I haven't thought that much about it," Quade said of Guillen's departure from the White Sox and decision to sign with the Marlins. "I have a good friend who is the third-base coach [Jeff Cox], and I'm concerned about him.

"Whenever something like that happens -- and I know Ozzie but I'm not close to him like I am [Cox] -- but I'm always concerned about those [kinds] of people," Quade said of the coaches. "It's baseball and these things happen.

"They're good baseball people, and they'll wind up on their feet," Quade said of Cox and others on the White Sox coaching staff.
