ChiSox could train in Glendale, play at TEP

With spring training slated to be almost a week longer than normal in 2009, the Chicago White Sox are looking at a plan that would have them train at a new complex in the Phoenix suburb of Glendale and fulfill their lease obligations at Tucson Electric Park by busing in players for “home games” while playing the rest of their home games in Glendale. Some reports peg the number of contractually obligated games for the Sox at the TEP at 15, but that seems high to us (most leases call for 10 to 11), so we’ll be checking on that. With a long spring training, 10-11 games in Tucson isn’t a huge obligation, but it seems Tucson would be getting the worst of both worlds.
