Twins lose first game, cancel season

Posted by jimbo92107 , 29 March 2018 · 611 views

The Minnesota Twins abruptly canceled the remainder of the 2018 season today after losing their opening game to the Baltimore Orioles, 3 to 2.

"Crushing defeat," said Derek Falvey, who took the rap like a man. "I apologize to the Pohlad family for putting a losing squad on the field. I hereby submit my resignation."

Falvey was quickly joined by the rest of the Front Office, plus all the Twins coaches and Paul Molitor, the team's Hall of Fame manager.

Various players either simply left town or announced their retirement. Joe Mauer plans to start a trout fishing club, possibly hiring Kent Hrbek as coach and manager. "Fishing and golf are all baseball players know," said Mauer. "I'm too old to become a pro golfer, but I think I can still catch a fish."

Fans concerned about refunds for season tickets are out of luck. The Pohlads are keeping the money.

Can I still show up at Target Field and buy $14 dollar craft beers while I look out longingly at the empty expanse of ballfield? :)

Sure, you can still come, and pay for the beer. But the Pohlads won't actually give you the beer.

 

Curiously, the organ player stuck around, so there will be plenty of music...if you like Lady of Spain... ;-)
