Phil Miller covered three seasons of Twins baseball, but that was at a different ballpark for a different newspaper. Now Miller returns to the baseball beat after joining the Star Tribune as the Gopher football writer in 2010, and he won't miss the dingy dome for a minute. In addition to the Twins and Gophers, Miller covered the Utah Jazz and the NBA for six years at The Salt Lake Tribune.

Measuring the fans' pain

CLEVELAND -- It's been fun scoreboard watching lately, wondering if the Red Sox and Braves will continue their epic collapses.

Will the Rays and Cardinals be able to finish the job? Wow. Who knew we'd have meaningful games to follow the last three days of the season?

I'm looking for some reader feedback here. What would be worse for you as a fan: Watching the Twins go from playoff hopefuls to 100-loss candidates, or watching the Red Sox, Braves (or 2009 Tigers, 2007 Mets, 1964 Phillies etc.) complete one of these historic collapses?

Tweet of the Day: The Twins must have just landed in Minnesota. Danny Valencia (@dannyvalencia19) just tweeted: Denard is driving on 394, everyone look out!!!
