I'll let Adam handle the game recap, but I had to get this out: YOUR MINNESOTA TWINS ARE THE AMERICAN LEAGUE CENTRAL DIVISION CHAMPIONS!! Thanks to some suckage from the White Sox and some help from our old friend the Athletics, these numbers now all have something in common: 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2009, 2010.
Of course the Twins won this game without Justin Morneau, Joe Mauer and J.J. Hardy. And of course the Sox lost with Hawk Harrelson in the booth, likely coming up with some folksy phrase like "DAG-GUM-IT".
There's going to be a lot of love bursting through Twins Territory over the next few days, but somehow I think I'll manage to deal with it. This is a great team, and they deserve that AL Central title and all the rights and perks thereof. Including the playoffs.
Liriano. Pavano. Crain. Thome. Valencia. Young. Hudson. I can't wait for October.
It's time for some celebratory Weezer...
