To everyone that always picks the White Sox over the Twins.

Sure they are better on paper, but they can't win this division as they are a bunch of idiots!!!!

Jose Valetin drops a two out can of corn in the 10th to give Jones a new life and of corse Jones takes advantage of it and give the Twins a lead with a clutch single. Ouch!!!!!!

IN the 8th inning the Sox started the inning with the first 6 guys reaching base on a hit or a walk and score 1 friken run! 2 horrible pickoffs.

Not to mention C-Lee up two outs bases loaded and K's, was to preoccipied with previous strike call.

A sweep in CHicago with their three aces!!!! Talk about a bolt to the heart for the Sox fan

It is awfully strange that the Twins can always find a way to win. Their lineup LOOKS like one of the worst in the league on paper. 8-o

Heehee...down with Shingo! ;-D

It's especially huge because chicago can run off a string of wins within the al central. Also, I think this is the wrong forum.

it does not matter that they have not had Big Hurt, Valentin, or Mags all healthy the whole season.

AL Central is just a bye week for the first round of the playoffs anyway.

Don't want to hear an injury excuses from the Sox.... I don;t even know where to start with our injuries. Only difference is we didn't trade all of our prospects the last two years to get medicre talent to no win the division so we had guys like Ford to step in and cover those injuries.

And to the comment about a bye in the first round. If we do get Benson and do make the playoffs. I think people shouldn't over look our defense with Johann/Radke/Benson, they won't be a push over even if the yankees buy a few more players.

Exactly, how many decent prospects have they spent on this cancer?

Just not a smart organization.

Is that what the A's thought two years ago? Was more like a bye for us.

This year we finally have a shutdown pitcher too. Not to mention what's looking like out first real cleanup hitter since Hair-Back.

I'm not saying we will for sure win a series, however like the Marlins last year. Sometimes the most expensive superstar filled team doesn't always win. For sure can't say the Twins are a push over. That's just a stupid comment.
