Does anyone want to win A.L. Central Division?

The American League Central Division race looks like it’s going to go right down to the end of the season.

That’s because the Minnesota Twins and Chicago White Sox are like a couple of lightweight fighters, slapping it out as the season heads into the final month.

In their past 10 games, the Twins have won three games and the White Sox four. No one seems to want to take control of the division. The White Sox try to live by the longball and the Twins try to get by without the longball.

The Twins have developed a frustrating road recipe the last 10 days: Flash enough early offense to get a lead, watch the offense go dormant the final three-plus innings and then witness the bullpen lose the game.


At least the White Sox haven’t shown any ability to pull away.
