Give Up, Cleveland. Now The Invincible Twins Have A Rally Squirrel

After a ridiculous hot start for the Twins, they’ve been struggling to maintain their division lead over Clevelend. Something has been missing. An ace starter? A dominant closer? Byron Buxton? Nope. The team apparently needed a #RallySquirrel.

Twins Surprised Season Still Happening

After a series that ended with two gut-wrenching losses to the New York Yankees in front of a packed Target Field, many Minnesota Twins were taken aback by a startling development on Thursday: There was another game to play.

“I was going to clean out my locker and get some rounds of golf set up,” said one player who asked not to be identified. “Then the traveling secretary said to make sure I got to the airport on time for the flight to Chicago. I had no idea what he was talking about until I remembered it was still July. Whoa.”
