Facing Yankees gives Wise an extra jolt
CHICAGO -- Dewayne Wise admitted to having a little extra energy moving through his body when he homered during Monday night's 9-6 White Sox win over the Yankees. After all, Wise played for New York earlier this season and seemed to do his job pretty well before the club designated him for assignment in July to add Ichiro Suzuki.

The move surprised Wise, who hit .262 with three homers and eight RBIs for the Yankees. He also understands the business side of the game and has enjoyed the enviable experience of playing for two first-place teams in the same season.

"I guess a lot of pressure is on them; it's a high-market team that has won a lot of championships over the years," Wise, who is batting .353 in his first eight starts with the White Sox, said of the Yankees. "Here, nobody expected us to be where we are today.

"Over here, guys are just laid back. They have a good staff that just goes out and allows guys to play, and I think that's a key to our success."
