Manny Ramirez in the White Sox's lineup and hitting fifth today

Sep 1, 2010, 11:16 AM EDT

After catching an early morning flight to Cleveland yesterday Manny Ramirez was apparently too tired to be in the White Sox’s starting lineup, so he merely appeared briefly in the on deck circle as a potential pinch-hitter before eventually sitting back down when A.J. Pierzynski smacked a three-run homer in front of him.
Now that he’s presumably well-rested, Ramirez is in the lineup for this afternoon’s game against the Indians and will make his White Sox debut starting at designated hitter and batting fifth between Paul Konerko and Mark Teahen.
Chicago trails Minnesota by four games in the AL Central with 30 games left to play, so even if Ramirez proves all the naysayers wrong about his current level of ability it may not be enough for the White Sox to catch the Twins. If the Twins play .500 ball down the stretch the White Sox would have to go 19-11 just to tie them, and Minnesota is 30-14 (.682) in the second half.
