TWINS TO STAY: A deal has been officially reached to guarantee that the Minnesota Twins will continue to exist through at least 2003 (barring a strike, of course). The only thing shady about the agreement are the quotes by the embarassing baseball commissioner, Bud Selig, who says that said the deal signals a commitment "by all parties to seek to continue the long tradition of the Twins ball club. Major League Baseball looks forward to working with the Twin Cities and all of Minnesota and their efforts to build a new ballpark and create an operating climate for the Twins that will ensure the continuation of baseball in Minnesota." Funny- when the out-of-commission commish was trying to murder the team last winter, he didn't seem too concerned about "the long tradition."
