Stage 1: Denial and Isolation

Last time I checked in, I was looking for hope with the Twins at 0-8 . I wrote that there was plenty of time to t...

There isn't a whole lot you can look back at and be positive about from the Twins 0-8 start this season, but here comes the sun (do do do do). There's a string of 70-degree temperatures coming up, and things can only go up from here for the Twins.

Yes, it's lame to write about the weather, but you can't be a Minnesotan and not talk about the weather, esp...
