Keep up this winning and we will blow that high draft choice....just getting ahead of the glass half empty crowd here.

I admit that part of me wanted the Twins to tank this season going in... but right now, they're winning based on the play of guys under team control for years (Plouffe, Diamond, Willingham, Mauer, Perkins, Burton, Revere, Span). You don't cheer for a team to lose and get a good draft pick when they're winning games on the backs of their cost-controlled players.

If this team was winning because of Liriano, Capps, Pavano, Doumit (before the extension), etc. I might feel differently about it (but that is good in its own way, as those players can be traded at the deadline for quality pieces if they're playing well).

Is there some kind of party that one should throw for this momentous occasion? I suggest lots of fireworks across America

The twins could trade A couple players and not be sellers and work a double buy with trading Span for a player that will help us now (starter) and could try to get back into this division. Highly highly unlikely that any possible move will get us the division but it's to early in the season not to push for it.

Obviously, any moves need to be focused on long-term gains over short-term success but if a deal for Span also helps the team win more this season, good for JR.

What are you tlaking about ?, Capps and Pavano are injured and Doumit has just been signed to a 2 year extension

When the Twins pass KC they will be on there way. Maybe we can trade pitching coaches with the Phillies, there great pitchers stink worst than ours.

We can schedule it for tomorrow night - have barbecues all across America, with hot dogs and apple pie.

Don't forget the modestly price domestic beer as well.

Apparently the AL Central doesn't know what home field advantage is.

Eat it, Seattle! Wild card, here we come!

Message to KC - objects in your mirror may be closer than they appear!

I don't think we even mentioned your/you're yet. Sigh. And all of this is going to have to wait until I take care of more important things like getting people to put the silverware at the end of a buffet line instead of the beginning. There's a lot on my plate (pun quite intended).
