AL Central Champs!

I'll just leave this here. As Twins fans, we've gotten somewhat used to winning the Central division; they've captured the crown in 2002-2004, 2006 and 2009. What we're not exactly used to having it wrapped up this early. The last few times the Twins have won the division, they've needed a furious late-season charge or even extra games to decide the outcome. It feels good to have the luxury of resting up for the playoffs, especially for Joe Mauer and his achy knee. This team has been a blast to watch the second half of the season, and I'm looking forward to more October baseball.

And thank God that October baseball will not include another Game 163.

  1. I'm so happy today, to have it wrapped up, no more hand-wringing, no more what-if scenarios, THE TWINS ARE GOING TO THE PLAYOFFS!
