Good morning Twinkie Towners! Here are some
- CBS News just declared the Twins season dead last week, which is rather optimistic if you ask me. Their prediction for next year? The Twins will be better, but still finish last.
- Oswaldo Arcia is day-to-day after tweaking his back on a big swing last night. RIP.
- The Twins game last night had the lowest attendance in the history of Target Field, with fewer than 20,000 tickets being sold for the first time.
- Friday's rainout likely cost Phil Hughes $500,000 in contractual bonuses.
- Danny Santana doesn't plan to play winter ball.
- Jordon Schafer attributes his hot-hitting start with the Twins to getting everyday at-bats, and says he would love to stay in Minnesota. "I love all of the guys here," Schafer said.
- Kennys Vargas only needs to hit one more home run and David Ortiz will buy him a special necklace. Supposedly.
- Apparently Elton John's road manager is a Twins fan, and Elton trashes him about it
whenever the Twins are doing badmost of the time.
- The Twins signed a 4-year contract extension with the Class A Fort Myers Miracle.
