That's what I'm asking.

Just another ****ty break for the Sox.

Typical.

He basically ran into the elbow. There was no intent at all.

Yeah, if anything the runner was trying to get away from PK by turning to the outside and he clipped PK as his momentum brought him toward foul ground. No way this was intentional. Not even sure it was an elbow if anything it was a shoulder.

Wise, Jackson and Johnson still playing in an extra inning game for Charlotte. Doubt any of them will be called up.

I think that all things considered, Dan Johnson makes the most sense out of what we have in the minors. *shrug*

I still say they have to be working on a deal.

Career ML OPS:
Jackson 757
Johnson 739
Wise 639
And for good measure, as he's available
Cintron 707

Im not promoting any of the above, I thought Wise would have the most use of the above but after tonight maybe not. I want them to go to waiver wire and get a proven player and if you have to lay out some cash, so be it.

Having trouble with the link, but you can see the play on the Sox' official site. There is a headline, "Mild concussion lands Konerko on seven-day DL" which has a link, "Konerko takes an elbow to the head". http://chicago.whitesox.mlb.com/news...s_cws&c_id=cws

Wise is not a particularly good defender (despite the MB saver) and he can't get on base. When he does manage to get a hit, it's often for extra bases. But it's just ridiculously rare. And he never walks (3.5% walk rate).

Johnson and Jackson actually had credible ML careers as simply below average, but not awful, hitters.

Thanks gang. I just have to see this because I'm having a hard time visualizing a left elbow hitting Konerko on the right side...(left side I could understand)

Guess it was his elbow. TV angle didn't show PK that low. Was wondering how he got hit that hard.

Rongey said on the post-game show that unlike the 15 and 60 day DL's, the 7 day DL does not have a retroactive feature. So Paulie is out till next Friday -- even though he didn't play Wednesday. We're in a pennant race -- you have to bring up your best option. And if you lose the guy (e.g. Johnson) afterwards because he's out of options, so be it. This situation is precisely why you sign guys like Dan Johnson and Dallas McPherson (waived a week ago) for your minor league team -- to have someone available for a short term emergency. Dan Johnson doesn't figure in the team's long range plans and if you're hanging on to him just for a September call-up, what was the point in signing him in the first place? So the fact that we may lose him after a week shouldn't be a reason to not bring him up. Plus, he may stick around after Konerko comes back (no guarantee Paulie will be ready in a week -- see Morneau, J) and force KW to re-shuffle the bench.

Considering his post 2007 mlb numbers, I hope not. It appears DWise is getting the call.
