The American League Central is an Exercise in Futility

To deal or not to deal?

That’s the question facing four teams in the American League Central Division as the July 31 trade deadline looms.

Neither the Cleveland Indians, Detroit Tigers, Chicago White Sox nor the Minnesota Twins (who gave up twenty runs last night and used Michael Cuddyer as a pitcher) have put enough things together to get comfortable.  None of the teams have been consistent.  And, because of that, every general manager in the division is hesitant to pull the trigger on a deal.

Cleveland got off to a good start, but injuries have made run-scoring an adventure.  The Sox and Twins have been disappointing, but they’re in the race because it seems, no one really wants to win it.
