There are much sadder things going on in the world than the state of Twins baseball. Harmon Killebrew has issued this press release regarding his exhausting battle with cancer. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family during this painful time.
The Minnesota Twins will open a three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays this weekend at Target Field, starting tonight at 7pm with Carl Pavano taking the hill against lefty Ricky Romero, who is 3-0 lifetime against the Twins with a 2.48 ERA in four career starts. Good times.
Time to hop the train out of Sucktown guys. Seriously, at 12-23 with the absolute worst record in baseball, it's getting hard for some fans to watch. Of course, I find it easier and much more enjoyable when I don't think about their craptastic season record and just take it one game at a time. You win some, you lose some. Or most.
Some good news might be that Delmon Young is expected to return tonight from a strained left oblique muscle. In the meantime, here's something else to laugh at...
We all have differerent coping mechanisms. Some people talk it out, others hold it in. Some drink. How are you dealing with the current state of Twins baseball?
