Here's a quick glance at what's happening around the American League Central.
The Twins are staying remarkably relaxed, despite another tough loss on their 14-game trip to that wraps up today. Just as the White Sox have already looked ahead to their series Sept. 23-25 at the Metrodome, so are the Twins. Here's what manager Ron Gardenhire had to say about facing the Sox: ''That would be a fun series, if it's all right there. [But] we gotta win ballgames and go from there. We can't put everything toward facing Chicago at home for three games. We've got too many games between then and after that.''
The Tigers' disappointing season is now being felt at the gate at Comerica Park.
Meanwhile, a freak injury to Angels pitcher Jered Weaver's fingers pushed him out of his start Friday against the White Sox. In fact, Weaver will miss the entire Sox series this weekend.
