Big thank you to Cleveland for sweeping the White Sux.   :happy1:

If the Twinks take out Cincy they win the division and get the home field for round one. Then off to the bubble in San Diego if they win round one.

Cincy's been hot for the last 2 weeks(8-2) & are the # 7 seed in the NL if the playoffs started today.
Fingers crossed.
Not lookin good  :pouty:, 4-1 now  :rolleyes:, so far tonight either.

This was the first season that my wife and I became Twins fans and watched most of the games.  I can't imagine a 160 game season.  That is a lot of games.  I was surprised how many errors occurred.  And I was also surprised how far out of the zone some of the strikes were.  But it was fun and we will watch next year too.  I heard them say that the strike zone will be a lazer computer thing within five years so it is more accurate.  Purists won't like this but wouldn't bother me I don't think.  Oh well now the Vikes, Gophers, Bison will be the focus.    And South Dakota State in Brookings too.  Have had a few family members go there.

Ya the umps were bad, but if you can't hit you won't win, let alone run the bases, make plays in the field, pitch...

Wonder if next year the "Bombas" tee shirt will be replaced with the "hitless in Mpls" tee shirt.

Sure hope they resign Cruz as he's a FA. He sayin he wants to stay but he'd like a 2 year deal with some guaranteed $. Cruz, Maeda, & Berrios were the only ones to carry their weight in the series IMO. Oh & the rookie yday played well.

The playoff format changed, but the nightmare continues for Minnesota Twins fans.

After being swept in their 2020 wild-card series by the Houston Astros, the Twins extended their MLB playoffs losing streak to a record 18 games. Minnesota has been outscored 107-48 in that stretch.

Must be a subliminal message in that attachment you posted Grandpa Tom. When I first read it I thought it said "Have a Crown, Keep Calm & Wait For the Next Year!!!"  :scratch:

It was a disappointing end to the season although with the crappy TV coverage, BLM nonsense, goofed up season and oddball playoff format I hadn't invested an awful lot of emotional capital. They certainly had the pieces in place. A few too many injuries and that's the way the cookie crumbles.

The good news is the Indians and White Sux also are out. The crappy division put 3 teams into the play-offs and all are done.   :happy1:

Yankees & Tampa Bay will be a great series. They don't like each other much and neither Boone or Cash are beyond having their team play some old country hardball.
