We’ve Come Too Far (To Go Out Like This)…
After watching the Twins get beat 7-2 last night in Game One of the ALDS against the New York Yankees, it brought back up all the old memories from 2003 and 2004, both years in which the same city’s franchise laid the Smackdown on us. Whereas they have All-Stars, we have young kids and unproven commodities.
Yet, I think all Twins fans would admit that, for the past month, this team has been a special ballclub. I would hate to see all that washed away in a quick series against the Evil Empire. I want to see some of that fight that this team exhibited for the past four weeks, and that starts tomorrow night.
