KNOW THIS

The Twins were stuck on 25 victories into JULY last season. It's true. They were 25-54 after losing to Texas on July 1. This year, they are 25-18 with a week left in May. This turnaround, so far, is nothing short of remarkable.

WATCH THIS

You might not care even a little bit about who represents the East in the Stanley Cup Final, but don't let that stop you from watching Game7 of the conference finals between Ottawa and Pittsburgh. 7p.m., NBCSN.

"What an awesome series, and great fun to watch. Fantastic pitching ... lots of hits ... the ONLY downside I saw today; CLUTCH hitting was not there: 2 for 14 with runners in scoring position. Still, the glass is MORE than half full. Way to go, Twins."
