Yeah, if other teams can collapse, so can the Twins... win the pennant. I see it now.

ashburyjohn- I'm not saying the Twins can win the pennant.
Doesn't sound like you're even saying they can win the division, merely "compete". That lowers the bar a second time, to a level that for me loses almost all its meaning. Sure, "you never know", but if everything in the world is random what do you really have?
You started the article with an observation about the trading deadline. You didn't really come back to that, but the rest of the article seems to lead to the conclusion that the Twins should not be sellers when the time comes. Was that your point? That the team with the worst AL record can't pull the trigger on trades because a magical season might still be in the works? I don't know of a big enough supply of pixie dust to allow for that.
