White Sox can't even do positive correctly

SEATTLE – A rare impressive victory for the White Sox didn’t come without a price.

White Sox starter Gavin Floyd had to get treatment on his right foot after being drilled by a comebacker and Paul Konerko had X-rays on his left wrist for a nagging injury.

Even when the White Sox play well, as they did in their 6-0 victory over the Mariners on Saturday, it isn’t without some issue apparently.

Konerko was in obvious discomfort during the game, even getting a visit from trainer Herm Schneider during an at-bat. He was lifted for a pinch hitter in the ninth inning. Moments after the game, Konerko and Schneider were off to get X-rays.

Word from the White Sox was that the X-rays on Konerko were "normal," which was taken to mean they were negative.

“He’s had that for a little while,” manager Ozzie Guillen said. “Something locked there. He took one swing and [he aggravated it]. It was unnecessary to go that last at-bat.”

Floyd was hit by an Ichiro Suzuki line drive in the fifth inning. He remained in the game and finished off his eight-inning outing when he gave up three hits and no runs.

Floyd said he would be fine, but added: “Yeah, it just doesn’t feel good when you get hit in the foot.
