Twins Take Wild Card Lead

On Friday the Twins took the wild card lead in the American League. I have a feeling that they might win the wild card, or maybe even the division if Detroit continues to melt down. I think it will come down to the series between the Twins and White Sox on the last weekend of the season.

I think that the "piranhas" can continue to get on base, if Torii Hunter continues to be hot, and if Morneau can continue to hit home runs, and if the bottom of the rotation steps up, the Twins will probably get in to the playoffs. That's a lot of ifs, but so far, so good.

Why is everyone picking on my Packer socks?

I wore my favorite pair of Green Bay Packer socks yesterday at my sister's t-ball practice. Everyone was giving me the boot about it. I heard so much stuff, I thought someone was launching a catapault with a bomb on me! C'mon, they're just socks, for goodness sakes? Give me a break, already!

Is Matt Garza ready?

Everyone is wondering if Matt Garza is ready to join the Twins. He has been soaring up the minor league ranks all year long and should be a dominant pitcher, like Santana and Liriano. He will be a good pitcher, I believe, because if the twins dealt for Soriano, he would have been traded to Washington, but they didn't do that.
