Here are three thoughts following the Twins' win, and sweep, against the White Sox
WHITE SOX AREN'T GOOD: Four errors, not covering home plate, a beleaguered bullpen. Those were some of the things that went on Sunday pretty much summed up the entire visit by the South Siders. Some believed the White Sox would be contenders in the AL Central - and they can - but they will have to do 180-degree turn from the rock bottom baseball they played this weekend. The most glaring play came in the fourth when Jordan Schafer scored on a wild pitch. Geovany Soto scrambled after the wild pitch and flipped a throw to pitcher Scott Carroll, who ran down to cover home plate. The throw sailed over Carroll's reach and rolled toward the Chicago dugout. Carroll ran after the ball. Soto was a stature between home and first. Home plate was unguarded, so Schafer took off and scored. Comical. One of the White Sox radio broadcasters said: ``I’ve been doing this over 20 years. By far this is the worst illustration I’ve seen of playing baseball” That quote got fired through the twitter machine.
ARCIA UPDATE: Oswaldo Arcia has a irritated right hip and was removed from the game in the fourth inning after running out a single. Arcia said he hurt it while running in the outfield. The Twins could use him the first two games of the Oakland series since A's are starting righthanders. The Twins don't seem to be too concerned about the injury but - stay tuned.
MOLITOR'S TOUCH: Seems like the lads are responding to Paul Molitor in a positive. My main story for tomorrow details a team meeting held after the clunker they put out on their home opener, when Molitor reminded them that skids happen in baseball and encouraged them to grind through it. The Twins have gone 12-6 since. Before today's game, Molitor was asked about the benefits of bouncing back after such a rough start. ``We climbed back to 500, but .500 is a one day event,'' he said. ``You're going to go one way or another once you get there. We hope to build on that.'' They then went out and did just that..
