That's right, I said it. The Twins stink, and it's about time the Sox beat them.

One game to decide it all

It shouldn't have come down to this. The White Sox should have put the AL Central away last week, but they choked in Minnesota. So, now they will have to beat the Twins Tuesday night in a one-game playoff, where anything can happen.

Ken Griffey Jr. is a future Hall of Famer, but his lack of hitting and poor defense in center field is killing the White Sox.

I don't know if it's the pressure of a tight pennant race or his failing eyesight or what, but Hawk Harrelson has had some trouble with his home run calls lately.

Back in April of 1923, slugger Babe Ruth hit the first home run in the history of Yankee Stadium. After the game, Ruth said, "I hit the first home run at Yankee Stadium; God only knows who will hit the last."

Eighty-five years later, God knows and so do we all.

Konerko out....So now what?

Paul Konerko's MRI on Wednesday confirmed the White Sox first baseman has a mild sprain of the MCL ligament in his right knee. So, how do the Sox survive without their team captain?

The White Sox lost the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Blue Jays 3-1 for one reason only: Manager Ozzie Guillen just can't control his urge to call for sacrifice bunts.
