Today, the magic number stands at 3. Not 4, not 2, and 5 is right out. The number is three and three shall be the number.

 

 

*I put in the whole thing because I can relate to the "soiled armor" bit what with some of the things that happened during the season.

 

Now, the Twins head into Detroit and the Twins faithful are looking at this series, knowing things are counting down to the post-season.

 

 

But, we are not counting our playoffs before they hatch, are we?

 

 

The Twins head into Detroit and, if the past is anything to go by, they will exact their revenge on Detroit. (Well, okay, the Twins have been exacting revenge on Detroit all year....)

 

And, with that, we go to stuff to think about. (Yeah, as if I really put a lot of thought into some of this stuff. Oh crud, I typed that out loud, didn't I?)

 

1. Detroit: Rebuilding or looking to rebuild the rebuild?

2. Twins: Can they beat the Yankees in home runs this year?

3. Bomba squad: Can they keep on bombaing?

4. Ginger or MaryAnne?*

 

*Just had to mess with ya'll a bit!

 

Lineups:

 

 
5. Play ball!

Pro-tip: timely cleaning of soiled armor will help prevent rust.

 

This has been a tip from the armor manufacturers guild.

 

Thank you, and, remember, clean armor is the best armor!

I am confused about selling our eggs before they hatch...

Please don't trade Lewis before he hatches.

And i wonder how final count down would sound with propper brass instruments.

I’m struggling with what I should be more anxious about — the Twins falling behind by 2-3 runs and hoping they can come back or having a 5-6 run lead and fearing they’re going to blow it.

Just enjoy the ride, no reason to get anxious before we even get started!

Gonzalez scratched with "oblique tightness". Turtle at first base. This worries me.

I'm with ya... Cheering for the White Sox is like drinking Tabasco Sauce because it cures anxiety.

Let's hope it's nothing serious. That would be a huge blow.
