We're almost there. For the first time in seven years, there WILL be October baseball that means something.
I'm hoping that this isn't my last game log for the year. It will be really nice if I need to half bake something for a game against the Spiders next Saturday.
Even if I don't get that opportunity, though, this year has been a success that I don't think any of us saw coming. There will be plenty of time to speculate about the best course moving forward, but for now, the best course of action is to drink another beer and watch the Twins beat up on a team that is decidedly tensing in the opposite direction.
Tonight, Slegermania takes hold again. I hope he's able to pitch however far into the game as the plan dictates. Also, some dude named Sanó gets to hopefully play his way into the Tuesday lineup.

Okay, so.... This has the potential to be a really good game. The Twins are in playoff positioning again. They're facing off against a legitimate ace in Greinke, but they've got a potential future ace going for them in Berrios.
The world's wordiest rapper has always benefitted from self focus. It's no surprise, then, that his best song is locked in on the bonds of brotherhood via a concert not attended and the little league game from hell.
