It's amazing to me that the Twins may end up playing tomorrow's game with a chance to be in first place at the All-Star Break. Of course, this means the Rangers will have to keep their 2-1 lead over the White Sox intact today, along with the Twins winning tomorrow and the White Sox losing again. It seems too good to be true, but as strange as this season has been I'm not going to bet against it.
Last thing -- the three wins against the Tigers have done a lot to convince me that the Red Sox series really was deceptive (something I've felt was the case since the series ended). The Twins were competitive (pitching-wise, at least) in the first game, should have won the second game (and would have, but for the poor performance of one pitcher), and of course got wiped out in the third game. Losing three games is never good, but things weren't as bad as they may have seen. Back tomorrow with (hopefully) more stuff.
