Back in the saddle

One of the nice things about being a baseball fan is being able to check out for a few days or weeks and not missing a whole lot. During a busy week I can see a few games and be just as much in the loop as I would be if I watched 15 or 20.

This may be because I don't pay a lot of attention to begin with, but that's just splitting hairs.

While I plan on restocking the blog tomorrow, it's worth noting that when we got back in tonight, I started surfing around a bit and saw that the Twins have stayed red hot and according to Deadspin's calculations, have won 20 of their last 22.

"They're still like 11 games back, right?" asked the girl and she's right, they're 10 games back. Detroit is 8-2 and Chicago is 7-3 in the past 10 games, so they only made up two games in the past 10 games.


When we talk Twins at work, the consensus is that it's great for the team, but they're in the wrong division to make a run regardless of how hot they get. Unfortunately, no one seems to be paying much attention to Detroit or Chicago's record when they hear that the Twins won on the radio on the drive to work.
