Fandom pulse __^__^__^__^__

The non waiver trade deadline has now passed and what do the Twins have? One less outfielder because Sam Fuld was traded to the A's. One more pitcher because the A's traded Tommy Milone in return. The Twins got a catcher for the short term because the team and Kurt Suzuki agreed on a contract extension, and the fans get to be a little excited because the Twins called up slugger Kennys Vargas.

Most everything has been discussed in the CoC, but feel free to add anything else here.

Oh, and the Twins can win a series with a victory tonight. Go team go.

Happy Birthday–July 31
