"I'm tired and I don't have anything. ... It was 2 1/2 hours of satisfaction and then 2 1/2 hours of [bleep] baseball. Go ask them. I don't have any more quotes, seriously. What the [bleep] am I going to say? They're [bleep]? Yes, they are. ... If they give up on me, then I give up on them."
— Ozzie Guillen after the White Sox lost in 14 innings Thursday in Seattle. Closer Bobby Jenks gave up two homers in the ninth inning to tie the game.
And the Sox are apparently about to shut down Gavin Floyd and Mark Buehrle.
That could have an effect on the division race. The Twins face the White Sox in Chicago for three games after the Detroit series; the Tigers have six game left with the Pale Hose. Floyd and Buehrle are two of Chicago's top three starters.
The Twins' schedule the rest of the way: Detroit (3 games); @ Chicago (3); @ Kansas City (3) @ Detroit (4); Royals (3).
The Tigers' schedule: @ Minnesota (3); @ Cleveland (3); @ Chicago (3); Minnesota (4); Chicago (3).
The Tigers had planned to start Jarrod Washburn, who has a very good record (3.38 ERA for his career) against the Twins, in this series, but the lefty only made it through one inning in his last start with a bum knee. Nate Robertson will pitch Sunday instead. Washburn might be done for the year.
