Rios, Dunn key to White Sox making a run
MINNEAPOLIS -- White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen was asked on Wednesday if general manager Ken Williams came to him with the offer of one addition needed to make this team better as the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline approaches, what position would he request? Guillen didn't take long to point at improvement from his own players as his lone suggestion.

"I need [Alex] Rios and [Adam] Dunn to start hitting," said Guillen. "To be honest with you, I'm not going to say we need this or that. When we set this ballclub up, spent a lot of money on this ballclub, [we] assume they're going to do what they're supposed to do.

"When these guys get hot for a little while, then we'll go for it. Right now, we have a six-man rotation. We can't put another guy out there. We're fine. Everything has worked out pretty good. Our bench is better. Hopefully, these guys start hitting and help the ballclub."
