Twins Tidbits

As the Twins are in a rain delay in Baltimore waiting to start their final roadtrip of the year, let's take some time for a few Twins tidbits...

- Surprise: Despite a horrible long roadtrip due to the Republican National Convention and some mediocre play at best lately, the Twins still find themselves just a game back of the White Sox in the AL Central. It's the closest playoff race in baseball and no one predicted these young Twins to be in this position. The season is certainly considered a success at this point, but the Twins must keep their eyes set on the playoffs.

- Unlucky: I didn't know this, but apparently a coin toss took place today at Major League Baseball headquarters in New York and the Twins came out on the wrong side of the coin. The flip was to determined tie-breakers for both the AL Central and the AL Wild Card. Unfortunately, the Twins will be headed to U.S. Cellular in Chicago or Fenway Park in Boston if either of these races end in a tie. Let's just win the division outright! Watch the flip here!

- 2014: The Twins announced yesterday their future attempt to host the 2014 All-Star game in the new ballpark that is yet to be named. This would certainly be an awesome event for Twins fans and the city of Minneapolis which claims they proved themselves after hosting the RNC. In traditional Midwestern and Twin modesty, the Twins said they didn't think they'd be quite ready to host the 2012 game which the Kansas City Royals are making at run for. Whatever... apparently two years isn't long enough. Twin great Tony Oliva said he hopes he'll still be around in 2014. Me too Tony, me too!
