Oh lordy, those really look disgusting, I thought as I downloaded this picture. Did I really used to eat those?

Twinkies may not be pie, but they certainly are dessert, and the White Sox had them after a very distasteful main course in Detroit this week.

The Minnesota Twins were good for what ailed the Sox. The Sox opened a big can of whoopass on the Twins, winning a Wednesday matinee 8-2 to complete a three-game sweep.

That left them tied for first with the Tigers after they were swept in turn in Detroit over the weekend, briefly pulling the Sox out of first.

Thank god for the last-place Twinkies in the American League Central Division—no matter what the Baseball Project might say, or sing.

Even so, I wrote last week that the winner of Friday's game between the Sox and Tigers would win the division, and that was the Tigers, and this week didn't really change that. The Sox beat up on some patzers at home in front of big crowds, but can they do it against top competition—like the West Division-leading Rangers this weekend in Texas?

We'll see, but after that they get a chance to beat up on the Twins some more in Minnesota next weekend. Please keep calling them Twinkies.
