Sneaky Twins

Team-work

Twins can be very sneaky.
Trust me… I am the father of two of them and they work in tandem sometimes to get what they want.

Well guess what? There are some sneaky Twins in Minnesota.

Now while we have all be looking at the Yankees and Rays and seeing who will get home field advantage and I’ve been hoping the White Sox make the AL Central another “decided via 1 game playoff” year for the third straight season, I noticed something.
The Twins are only 4 games back of the Yankees.
That’s it.
As they take on the Royals, the Indians, the A’s and the White Sox over the next few weeks, they have a pretty solid rotation and nobody is noticing them.
Meanwhile the Yankees are struggling with the Orioles and have 7 games against the Rays coming up.
Could the Twins catch the Yankees? Could the Minnesota Freaking Twins take the claim of “Best Regular Season Record” and home field advantage in the Division Series and possibly the ALCS?
Now I would pick the Rays or Yankees over the Twins in a short series… but then again, they ARE Twins.
They are sneaky.
Right now I wouldn’t bet against them… whether it is to win the Division or steal another cookie.

Make it 19 of 22 starts for the Giants

Another day… another terrific starting pitching performance for the Giants.

Today Matt Cain took a no hitter into the 6th and pitched into the 8th inning.

He gave the Giants 7 innings, 2 runs, 3 walks and 6 K’s… and once again the Giants don’t need to wear out their pen.

19 of their past 22 starts have been solid starts as I wrote before.

Seriously Giants… this is the best starting rotation since the 1993 Braves.
Find a big bat. Trade for one now.

The Giants misery is underrated. This is a chance to take care of business for Giants fans.

My dad is a Giants fan… and he hasn’t seen his team win the World Series since 1954.

And my son Aidan is also a Giants fan.

He was born in 2005… he’s never had a champion in his lifetime.
Hasn’t he waited enough?
