After getting swept by the Mets, our dear Twinkies are entering a very very mucho grande importante segment of their schedule.

Today is the first game of a 3 game series against Oakland (a very good team), after which the Twins go on to play 4 against the Yankees (who eons ago made an Anti-Twins soul-pact with Glasya-Labolas the mighty president of Hell, commander of 36 demonic legions, and author of manslaughter and bloodshed.) all while leading Cleveland in the central by a mere 4 games.

On Cleveland’s side, they’ll be finishing up a series with the Tigers today, and then go on to play such great teams as “The Royals” and “The Blue Jays” and “The Royals Again.”

In short: GO TWINS GO
