Just talked to Ramon Ortiz, and he’s taking his demotion to the bullpen in stride. He’s willing to help the team out in any way and thinks he may be able to get back whatever he lost while working out of the pen.
He has a little bit of experience as a reliever, going 1-2 with a 2.76 ERA in 20 appearances.
After Monday’s game, WGN in Chicago showed a highlight reel of Torii Hunter’s catches through the years against the White Sox. It’s obvious that the feeling there is that Torii has been a pain in their side. It could also serve as a recruiting video, because I wouldn’t be shocked to see the White Sox in line with other teams to bid on Hunter if he hits free agency.
White Sox (24-22): 1. Erstad, CF. 2. Cintron, 2B. 3. Thome, DH. 4. Dye, RF. 4. Konerko, 1B. 5. Pierzynski, C. 6. Crede, 3B. 7. Mackowiak, LF. 8. Uribe, SS. Pitching: John Danks.
Twins (25-25): 1. Castillo, 2B. 2. Punto, 3B. 3. Cuddyer, RF. 4. Morneau, 1B. 5. Hunter, CF. 6. Redmond, C. 7. Cirillo, DH. 8. Kubel, LF. 9. Bartlett, SS. Pitching: Bonser.
Other than that, it looks like a normal day after a controversial game….
