Twins game is not over yet.How do you know they won?

I was disappointed not to see Mr. Granite (could he have a better name, unless he gets a nickname like "Rocky?") on the AFL roster.  He is without a doubt my favorite Twinks minor leaguer.  And what a season he's had.  Watch out, Buck-- may be another CF candidate soon.
