And now before I present to you the starting lineups, here’s some serious analysis. And by serious analysis, I obviously mean, The Ninja Rap by Vanilla Ice from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie haphazardly edited to be about the Twins.

Yeah.

Yo! It’s the Minnesota machine

Gonna rock the town straight to the World Series

Have you ever seen a Twin get down?

Slammin’ Jammin’ to the new swing sound

Yeah, everybody let’s move

Vanilla is here with the new Dong Groove

Gonna rock, and roll this place

With the power of the Minnesota Twins bass

Iceman, ya know I’m not playin’- Devastate the game while the Twins are sayin’:

Twins, Twins, Rap! Twins, Twins, Rap!

Go Go Go Go!

Go Twins, Go Twins, Go; Go Twins, Go Twins, Go!

Go Twins, Go Twins. Go; Go Twins, Go Twins, Go!

Go Go Go Go!

Lyrics, fill in the gap

Drop that bass and get the Twins Rap

Feel it, if you know what I mean

Give it up for those heroes in whatever color the uniforms are today

Just flowin, smooth with the power

Kickin’ it up, hour after hour

Cause in this life there’s only one winner

You better aim good so you can hit the center

In it to win it, with a team of 26+Taxi Squad

Minnesota Twins that you gotta adore it’s the:

Twins, Twins, Rap! Twins, Twins, Rap!

Go Go Go Go!

Go Twins, Go Twins, Go; Go Twins, GoTwins, Go!

Go Twins, Go Twins. Go; Go Twins, Go Twins, Go!

Go Go Go Go!

Mariners, you better run and hide

Because one day you might not slide (Safely into second base.)

Choose your bat but don’t slip

Vanilla’s in control with the flex of the mic grip

Rockin’ the crowd the way it should be rocked

With the Minnesota drop that you like a lot

Hittin’ like Joe Mauer when the bass kicks in

You better check your inning

The power of the Twins is strong—Sluggin’ all the Dingers until the opposing team’s bullpen is all out cold.

Twins, Twins, Rap! Twins, Twins, Rap!

Go Go Go Go!

Go Twins Go Twins, Go; Go Twins, Go Twins, Go!

Go Twins, Go Twins. Go; Go Twins, Go Twins, Go!

Go Go Go Go!
