Man, if I see the term “Showdown in Motown” used on one more bloody sports blog or web site today, I swear I’ll flip.
I’ve decided to come up with a few more alternatives for Twins (and other baseball bloggers) starved of original ideas:
Adroit in Detroit
Shenanigan in Michigan
Motor City Sub-committee
OK, none of these actually make any sense. “Sh*wd*wn in M*t*wn” it’ll have to be.
The simple fact is, that if the Twins don’t win more than three of the four games upcoming at Comerica Park between Monday and Thursday, they can pretty much kiss their play-off hopes goodbye. It’s a tough proposition for a Minnesota team that decided to be pretty much average for 85% of the season and only start playing properly in September, but it is what it is, and anything could happen.
I, for one, will be exceedingly anxious for the next few days, even though this is just a sport, and is supposed to be fun. Ain’t baseball great?
