Walker to return to Sox?

Greg Walker, the hitting coach for the White Sox since 2003, is strongly leaning toward returning to the club for the 2011 season. His contract expires after the '11 season and with players like Paul Konerko and A.J. Pierzynski in doubt about their return, Walker may have been on the outs as well.

Things still aren't for sure, but Walker sounds pretty sure.

"There is still a lot of winter left, but I always anticipate I'm coming back," he said Friday. "Right now, I anticipate coming back." (MLB.com)
