Thanks, Twins, appreciate the timing

Yesterday, I wrote a piece about the Twins and how they were doing the right things for an organization that struggles to attract free agent talent.

A’s Pound Minnesota 11-0, Drop Magic Number to 2

The force was strong with the A’s Friday night, or at least so it would seem on Star Wars fireworks night at the O.co Coliseum. And honestly, I am not sure how else to explain a pair of a misplays in right field by Twins’ outfielder Oswaldo Arcia and a very costly throwing error by third baseman Eduardo Escobar. It was as if the Yoda version of Stomper that toured the Coliseum...
