For some reason, the weekend's four-game series between the Twins and Red Sox was deemed so important by the powers that be in Bristol that ESPN needed to carry nationally televised games on successive nights. Not that I'm complaining, especially since the Twins took three of four from the defending champs. Somehow, Craig Monroe hit two homers on Sunday night, and the Twins won with small ball on Monday, scoring seven runs with no homers.

It's great to see the Twins doing so well, especially since they weren't even supposed to contend this year. But they really need to start hitting for some power. You really can't expect to contend while ranking near the bottom of the league in home runs.

Near (or at) the bottom in homers, total bases, OBP, slugging, OPS, and walks, that is.

Good thing we, I guess.

What we've had this year is timely hitting - which is very much a new thing for the Twins.
