A day of rest

Following the loss to Oakland on Monday, Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said that Jim Thome will not be in the starting lineup on Tuesday.

But Guillen said it had nothing to do with the sluggers 0-for-4 performance in Mondays 2-1 loss. The plan before the start of the series with Oakland was to rest Thome a day, especially with a day game after a night game.

I already talked to him and hes not going to play [Tuesday], Guillen said. Give him one day off so he can rest mentally and physically.
