In case you missed the latest counterintuitive move by White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen, here are the gory details.
The scene of the crime: yesterday afternoon at the Cell. The Sox are trailing the Twins 7-4 heading into the bottom of the ninth. Closer Joe Nathan is on the hill for the Twinkies.
The Sox start to rally. Alejandro De Aza doubles and Omar Vizquel walks. They move up a base as Juan Pierre grounds out. Brent Lillibridge is due up, the tying run. He already has a two-run homer in the game, and he’s scored another run as well, scooting home from first on a Paul Konerko double.
But take cover. Ozzie’s thinking.
