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

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.
