RIP, 2010 Twins

This team seemed different, and this felt like the year, it really did. But nope, they still couldn't get past the Yankees, and were swept out in the first round once again. The numbers are all ugly- they've lost 11 straight playoff games, five straight series, and haven't won in the playoffs since 2002, when among current players only Michael Cuddyer was on the team.

All I can say is, the Brooklyn Dodgers couldn't beat the Yankees for decades, until they finally did in 1955. The Red Sox lost huge games and pennant races to them for most of the 20th century, until in 2004, they finally did it. Someday the Twins will do the same- just hope it won't be too long.
