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.


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 Game 7 of the conference finals between Ottawa and Pittsburgh. 7 p.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."
