So Mauer, Berrios, Burdi and Tapia for Tulo and Hawkins, as a not perfect but fairly close approximation. Who's happy with that?

Is there anybody that WOULDN'T be happy with that?



I am not the paranoid you're looking for.

Better hitting team. With just enough pitching to get rolled in the Wild Card game the next two years!

When the # of games + the # of teams you have to jump > than the # of weeks left in the season. Currently this will be 5 (3+2) and there are 8. So not yet. We could be only a couple weeks away though.

I know that they have been sitting right around .500 alongside the Twins this whole time and maybe this series alone made them appear god-like to us, but (especially) with their trade deadline additions, this team seems 100% legit to me. Their lineup is just ridiculous.
