Go Twins

The woman I live with is easier to be around when the boys do well,  when the game goes her way. The Minnesota Twins are 44 and 18 since the break; they bought the American League Central last night - magic number is zero. They are within a game of home field advantage. 
The lark's on the wing;
The snail's on the thorn;
God's in his Heaven -
All's right with the world!

First team to clinch, nice work.

Well since my Dodgers and Angels are out the Twins are my team.

It helps to be in a weak division.

It's really remarkable, Joe Nathan, the *best relief pitcher in the league, is out all year, former league MVP Morneau out for most of the year with a concussion, a lot of injuries all year. They just keep moving people around and bringing people up from the minors. They just play defense, keep the pressure on, grinding it out inning after inning, game after game.

*Mariana Rivera gets kudos as the best relief pitcher. He plays in a major market. Nathans stats are better over the past four years.

Yeah but I got all you guys. I have the best Divorce of the year. What a God Damn soap opera. I have been a Dodger fan all my born days and these two carpet baggers (the McCourts) really take the cake.

Please bring back Peter O'Malley!!!

I've been following that fiasco. Who owns it? Split it? Why even pursue the question? They have the damn team so leveraged it's an unsalable white elephant. If I were Joe Torre I'd run and hid too.

Beat the Yankees!

They can beat the Rays. When they play the Yankees they get the bunghole puckers, so pull for the Rays in the East.
