White Sox know to keep focus on themselves
NASHVILLE -- The White Sox realize defending American League pennant winner Detroit only got better from its 2012 effort with the addition of Torii Hunter and the return of Victor Martinez. They also understand it does no good to worry about anyone but themselves.

"If Detroit wins 130 games, we are going to be in big-time trouble. It will be a very tough division to win," said White Sox reliever Matt Thornton with a laugh. "We are always going out to win our division, but with the new Wild Card addition, it's about making the playoffs.

"Winning the division is our No. 1 priority, but getting there is getting there. So, go out and win as many games as possible. If you start concerning yourselves with Detroit, Boston, New York and Kansas City, it distracts from the ultimate goal of winning games. Just focus on what we have and what we are doing."
