We Stink Awesomely

See, "Two-i" Torii Hunter barked at the Twins recently. "You stink," he told everyone in the clubhouse, an oddly mild thing to say to a bunch of grown men. I don't know if Minnesota Parent had a beat writer in attendance, but that's what Torii said. Today, after he pretty much won the game all by himself, he added, "We stink... though awesomely."

When your team is pretty much out of the playoffs and wearing their spoiler caps, and manages to throw a wrench into the Mariners wheelhouse by winning 6-1 to take the series two out of three, well, that's fine by me. Even finer is when one fellow, in this case Two-i, drove in the go-ahead run in the eighth, and then blasted a grand slam in the ninth to put it away. Who'd a figgered?

You could say that. Then again, I might say the Arizona Diamondbacks--who have given up more runs than they've scored, yet sit in first place--deserve that description more than we do. (Or the '87 Twins for that matter.)

Yep, the Twins beat the surging Seattle Mariners, perhaps the most exciting team in the American League right now. Bopped 'em good last night, kept it tight today until the very end of the damn game. Yesterday it was Matt Garza keeping the bats cool, today it was Scott Baker. Yesterday, there was lots of firepower, today there was just enough. Yesterday, it was Jason Bartlett shooting the fireworks. Today, it was Rondell White knocking his first over the fence and then Torii finishing the game off in style.

So I agree that today's Twins are awesome. Friday, maybe I'll say they just stink.
