Be Careful What You Wish For, Ozzie Guillen

The Minnesota Twins have won four of six from the hated Chicago White Sox in the last week-plus. They have three games left together later in September.

After Thursday's 11-0 White Sox win that allowed them to avoid a sweep and a six-game hole in the American League Central, Chicago manager Ozzie Guillen -- not known for ever really filtering his thoughts -- was very clear.

He wants more from the Twins.

He can't wait to see them again.

"Give me a shot against them late in the season," Guillen said. "I predict this thing is going to be all the way to the wire. We stay healthy, we are going to compete and see what happens."

Hey, Ozzie: You're 5-10 against the Twins this season. That's five three-game series, at least on average, and you win one of three each time.

Do you really want to play them again?

Doesn't seem like a good idea to me. Instead, the White Sox are better off setting the Twins up with more dates against the Yankees, who they can't seem to beat under any circumstances.

Give Minnesota credit, because the White Sox have played some awesome baseball this season, but still can't seem to solve the puzzle when it comes time to play the Twins.

Let's hope it stays that way, so Ozzie can relive more of his personal nightmares Sept. 14-16 at U.S. Cellular Field.
