It's great to see the Twins have the 3rd best record in the American League (83-57), just behind the damn New York Yankees (87-53) and Tampa Bay Rays (84-55). Now not to get anxious and jump ahead of ourselves...last year, the Twins were 6.5 games out of first place and ended up winning the division. However, if the Twins continue to win series like they have been doing, I don't think they'll have anything to worry about when it comes to Chicago.
Lately guys like Matt Tolbert and JJ Hardy have been stepping up while some of our other guys (Valencia) have been out. I think I am shocked every time Matt Tolbert has gotten clutch hits.

Joe Nathan: "I'd play shortstop, since that's what I was originally drafted for."
Matt Guerrier: "I think I'd like to play in the outfield. I see the balls that those guys don't catch out there. Though, I'd probably drop them too."
Michael Cuddyer: "I'd like to pitch. Since that's the only thing I haven't done yet."

Another upcoming player appearance is for JJ Hardy, at the Fan HQ in Minnetonka! $10 for autographs. More information is available HERE. If you're going, let me know! I'll be there too!
Be sure to check out Off the Mark's take on being an Usher in the first season at Target Field: HERE. It's quite entertaining and I'm sure I'm one of the people who do things that the ushers don't like. Like sit in seats when I bought standing room only tickets. :)
