10:30 AM ET 10.05 | The home-field advantage for many teams includes soaking the infield to limit the effectiveness of a faster visiting ballclub. The White Sox's grounds crew wouldn't accidentally leave the water hose on overnight, would they? "Of course, teams do that," Tampa Bay first baseman Carlos Pena said. "At Yankee Stadium sometimes it's kind of soaked. That's understandable. We have a fast team, a team that uses baserunning as a tool. I know these guys like the hard surface. It wouldn't be surprising if it's a little wet out there [Sunday]." Speedy center fielder B.J. Upton is also wary of Sunday's field conditions.
