Words can't quite describe how much I missed you guys while on vacation.  Though it was much needed, I'm happy to be back home and blogging again!

Lots of stuff has happened in Twins Territory since I last posted, including a series win over the Milwaukee Brewers, the avoidance of a sweep at the hands of the New York Yankees, and a much-needed three-game sweep over the Texas Rangers.

Now we're halfway done with a four-game fiasco in Seattle against the Mariners.  Kevin Slowey will take the hill at 9:10pm against 2008 AL Cy Young Award winner Cliff Lee, who is a career 8-3 with a 3.57 ERA in 17 starts against the Twins.  Meanwhile, Slowey is 1-1 with a 7.59 ERA after facing the Mariners just twice in his life.

Here are some Twins links to get us back on track!

As always, feel free to email me (now that I'm back down to earth) with tips on stories, events and the like.
