On my drive in Murph was breaking down the sox game....(love when he does this). Murph was breaking down the play in the 8th inning when Texas had the bases loaded, ground ball to Konerko and he tries to get the double play throwing to second. I did not see it, but you have to go home with that ball. And what is up with Crede's glove????

Well - you did not see it. He had no play at home - no play at all - not a chance. If he would have went home, we'd have gotten no outs and still been there. I don't know if Murph saw the play - but home was the wrong option there. The ball Crede booted took a strange hop. He should have made the play anyway, but it was an ugly hop.

Konerko botched the play because he was still winded from running 1st to Home in the second inning.

Wasn't Manuel's main reason for refusing to play Thomas in the field that Konerko was so good at making the 3-6-3 double play?

HUH? I saw it and he had a CLEAR out at home. No question. He was coming in a ball and his momentum was even TAKING him to the plate. Not hit hard enough to get 2, but he had anyone at ANY base he wanted to.

Totally agree. We were sitting in 335 and off the bat thought for sure he would go home because it was an easy play.

I don't recall Crede's ball taking a weird bounce either. The thing was in his glove and bounced right out.

I concur. The runner would have been out by a considerable margin, and the chance of turning the double play was not reduced by going home. It was a dumb play on Konerko's part.
