Hey thry -
Just thought I'd mention that these number things are fun.
Sadly, '1' is the number of games the Twins are winning in each series since sweeping Chicago.
Except for getting swept by the Angels, of course.

Hey Marv

they can still do it but someone/something got to light a fire under their (collective) ass.

I don't think that the way I feel about the manager and the coaches is news by now. They have proven that they cannot make it happen for the games that mattered.

If someone does not think that this is prime time for a change (and a new beginning with a new stadium next season) instead of the same old and tired "we battle our asses off but darn we came up short again" shit, I am not too sure that I would not have to question their mentality at this point.
