Thank you SO MUCH for this---I didn't think we'd ever see another one of these compilations, due to your....."issues" with t*****r!  Once again, you've done an unspeakably fantastic job.  Hats off to you---

Actually crying

Fabulous!! ❤️❤️
That was fun! Thank you!

This team was built, and built beautifully IMO, for 162 game season. We got 60 games instead, with all its weird parameters, including no milb season, taxi squads, short ramp up, rule changes, and even minor injuries that had huge effects. And STILL the Twins had a great season and won the ALC for a 2nd season.

That flag means something to me as a fan and can't be taken away. I place no asterik on it. I despise reality TV programs, but no matter how 2020 turns out, this has been a sort of Survivor contest for everyone involved.

I think the Twins have as good of a shot as anyone! I have only 2 real concerns as we enter the final stages:

1] The idea of a traditional closer may be over-rated, but the Twins might have won 40 if their great and deep pen had that ONE GUY they could have truly counted on.

2] The offense is not anemic. Small ball has it's place here and there still in today's game. But history has shown come playoff time that stringing together multiple hits doesn't usually equate to winning. Can the Twins lineup, built for power, still make enough contact to sacrifice a runner to 3rd or make a simple sacrifice out to score a runner from 3rd base with 0 or 1 Out?

Love what you did Parker!
