Twins pile on to White Sox's woes
By Melissa Isaacson
CHICAGO -- If there is any tension in the Minnesota Twins clubhouse Thursday as they head into a four-game series at U.S. Cellular Field eight games behind Cleveland for fourth place in the AL Central, you wouldn't know it as manager Ron Gardenhire summons his trainer for the latest injury report.
"Since we have so many people on the DL, we decided to let the trainers do it," says Gardy with a playful smirk. "It's just a lot easier that way. If I call it a sprain, they call it a supernatural twist and then somebody gets mad."
