Hobbled Twins Beat Yankees!

Some of you may or may not know that I hail from the Twin Cities area in Minnesota. I'm a pretty big Vikings, Twins, Timberwolves, Wild and Gophers fan; have been all my life.

Anyway, I didn't get a chance to watch the game against the Yankees tonight, but it looks like we did pretty good. The fact that 3 big Twins players are out (Nick Punto hurt his hamstring yesterday which put him on the DL, Justin Morneau is day-to-day with a strained left elbow and Joe Mauer is supposedly day-to-day now with a groin injury) makes this victory against the high-priced Yankees all the more sweet.

We're still 3.5 games back from the White Sox, but what is really surprising is that so far the Central Division in the AL has not been the weakest division as it has been the last few years when the Twins won the division. The White Sox and Twins are #1 and 2 in the AL for record and #1 and 4 in the overall league...pretty good.
