It took a major comeback after their catastrophic April and May, but the Minnesota Twins have returned to the playoffs after missing last year, clinching at least the wild card after defeating Kansas City tonight. They're also still in it in the AL Central, and are just a game behind Detroit with all of their remaining games at home.
Also nice to see the defending champion White Sox eliminated, with a 13-1 loss to a team they'll likely finish behind next year, the Cleveland Indians.
But, but... where the hell was the crowd? I know it's the Royals, but just 17,000 for the clincher? Say what? That homer by Morneau went into an almost-empty center field.
It's going to be an exciting post-season, for sure. But first, get ready for Brad Radke's farewell game. And if that works out, he'll be the Curt Schilling of '06.Posted by Stephen Silver at September 26, 2006 02:19 AM
