I wonder whether the concussions might still be a factor. Morneau seems to me to a bit slower to react than he used to be.
What do you know? Plouffeeeeee!
That at bat could not have gone any better. I vote for Willingham to be the new hitting coach.
Oswaldo Arcia wouldnt look good as a PH here would he??
Joe Nathan had a terrible game tonight -- 4 hits, 3 runs and no outs when he left. I hope that he is not injured.
We're sitting in last place at the tail end of a disappointing season, but I still love me a walk-off W. Fun to watch.
We'd be in sole possession of 4th if Nathan hadn't choked.
Oh well, here's hoping that I'm sitting in stunned disbelief tomorrow night as I watch the Twins rough up Sale and strike a blow to the Whities playoff hopes.
Good game, nice win for the Twins.
Francisco Liriano will be skipped in the rotation Friday following Thursday's rainout.
Liriano was expected to return from the bullpen to start Friday against the Twins, but the rainout will allow the White Sox to skip him altogether. Chris Sale, Jose Quintana and Jake Peavy will start this weekend while Gavin Floyd is expected to pitch Monday's makeup game against the Tigers.

FWIW- ESPN had his defensive gem as the #3 play of the day- behind only the Marchado walk-off and the Packers fake field goal TD.
Did anyone else notice that the Dick Bremer calling the game tonight was from a slightly similar parallel universe? Early on, he insisted that Plouffe hadn't hit a homerun since early July, and then in the 9th, after the Trevor longball correctly noted by Bert as # 21, Dick then interjected: "Plouffe finally gets his 20th Homerun!"
