Blink and the World Ends (Twins 4 Yankees 10 - Game 78)
This was supposed to cross the finish line with the Twins in the lead. Iíd decided that late last week. The Twins are struggling but still have a heartbeat. The Yankees have pains of their own. The sagaís supposed to take a turn for the Twin Cities tonight. I expected a spanking, perhaps with the Twins using a broom.
The innings I caught on the radio didnít spoil my dream, even though I did enjoy hearing Dan Gladdenís
There's a fuller write up "recapping" the last week plus in Twins Territory at our main blog, but here are a few key samplings from each series
Marlins 5 - Twins 3
The Twins have a good deal of early success against Miami's starter in the first inning, they run into trouble against Kevin "Killthrow" Slowey, who savored the opportunity to best the team that let him go. Elsewhere "Dr. Cakeburn"Nick Blackburn, and Boof Bonser plotted their
For the first two games of this Yankees-Twins series, the Twins went off early by scoring 3 runs in last nights game, then only being able to score one more the rest of the game (thanks to a Parmalee solo shot).

Psst. You there. Yeah, you in the Twins hat and Joe Mauer shirsey. Put down that plush TC bear, I have a secret that I can't hold in any longer. This is very hard for me to say. I've been thinking about it for a long time and I've felt this way even longer. I can't hold it in; I need to confess to someone. I'm trusting you to keep my secret, but it won't be easy. Are you ready?
How much would I like to see the Twins take 3 of 4 at Yankee Stadium? More than I'd like to be the one to personally fire Gardenhire and get "the Franchise" out of town. OK maybe not that much but it would probably make my pants a little tighter.
But I'm still worried by this team. I am reasonably sure that the heart of this lineup can produce this season. The starters are always a little concerning for me and the bullpen is an absolute heart attack on a nightly basis. This
