I sit here in front of a library computer with an empty coffee cup and a book open on the desk in front of me. As the Twins were beating the snot (okay, hyperbole) out of the Yankees, I was reading a 96 page research paper. Maybe it was the lack of caffeine, maybe it was my brain worrying about more important things, but not once (well, maybe twice) did I think the Twins would lose to that game. Having that kind of confidence about the Twins (in general), especially against the Yankees (6-27!) seems like a fairly foolish thing to think. However, I believed it, and it came to happen. Now, maybe this is the coffee talking, but I feel like this win is going to be indicative of why this season won't be the house of horrors everyone has expected. And here is why.
And I have a feeling we'll be striking plenty this year.
Are the Twins the greatest team ever, the best team ever, or the penultimate achievement of baseball fantasticness?
