Vizquel states desire to return in '12
CLEVELAND -- Omar Vizquel has made it clear that he intends to play at age 45.

"I already made up my mind that I'm coming back," the White Sox infielder said of his 2012 plans.

Whether his friend and former teammate Jim Thome returns has yet to be decided. But Vizquel sounded as if he'd like to see more from the slugger.

"He's just an amazing human being," said Vizquel of Thome, now with the Indians. "I'm so glad he's still around. He's a guy who has been so honest and truthful to the game. He's the image people want to follow. He keeps out of trouble, and he really cares when he asks how you're doing. You can tell the guy means it."
