She got help composing her first reply to porter in weeks. This is extremely inappropriate very offensive and getting out of line. Could you please stop sending offensive photos or message. Puerto responded oh. I'm sorry i will stop. I really apologize. Please let me know if you ever need anything workwise and we need to reiterate that this reporter is not from the united states.

"Game at Wrigley field playing for the other fans. But last night, certainly there were a lot of White Sox fans here supporting him on the team. He ends up being on, after the cubs traded Aloi Jimenez to the White Sox, almost two years ago, and he, he made a statement last night. No question about it. And the one thing that I think we're learning about Aloi Jimenez beyond the fact that he just loves the smile and loves to have fun, boy, this guy, embraces, the big stage tonight starting pitcher, Lucas, g Alito spoke about that aspect of the White Sox news. Slugger keesa type of guy where the stage doesn't make a difference to him. He I think that for him, the more fans, the, the bigger, the stage, more fun. It is. I know you guys see him out there. Like always having a good time joking around. That's just the way he is. So I think that's a really good mentality to have and it's going to serve him. Well over the next twenty years of his career twenty years, I. Everybody would take that. But certainly, when you think about where this franchise is headed in the bigger stages, that they're going to be on a slugger like that who's gonna be in the middle of the order for a really, really long time, embracing that big stage. These big moments that is so important, and it's still for twenty two year old to come up big like that. It's pretty incredible. Meanwhile Lucas GIO Alito himself having an outstanding season. Still a youngster for the White Sox as well ten in one two point two two ERA. Both of those numbers, the winds and the ERA currently.
