There’s some sort of magic around these Minnesota Twins.
Its official the Minnesota Twins are some sort of team of destiny. What that destiny is, I guess we will find out, but they are destined for something. That has certainly become clear as of late for the Twins.
Wednesday night saw the Twins needing a walk-off home run from Eddie Rosario to win a ballgame over the San Diego Padres. Thursday night saw the Twins need a walk-off homerun from Byron Buxton to defeat the Toronto Blue Jays. That is all after having only one walk-off hit as a team throughout the rest of the season.
What in the world is going on? It makes no sense, really. The Twins have Matt Belisle trying to pitch in close games and they end up winning. It is getting to the point of ridiculousness, honestly.
The Twins have been dead in the water multiple times this season and were no-doubt sellers at the trade deadline, but here they are with a multiple game lead for the second Wild Card spot in the American League. Heck, at this point the Twins might even catch the New York Yankees for the first Wild Card spot. Nothing is out of question, well, other than the division crown, but, hey, it’s hard to catch a team that sets a league record for consecutive wins.

Maybe the Twins destiny is to just simply make the playoffs and prove to the front office that they should not have given up on them at the trade deadline. Maybe the Twins, like they did to the Oakland A’s years ago, are destined to stop a team with recording breaking win streaks in the playoffs. Maybe the destiny is just to have Big Sexy Night at Target Field.
Whatever that destiny is, I’m glad the Twins are going there. We were hoping that the team would keep us interested until Tax Day and they have us interested in baseball in the month of September. There was magic in the Metrodome and maybe, just maybe, the Twins finally unpacked that box at Target Field this year.
The Twins continue on with their series with the Toronto Blue Jays this weekend at Target Field. Bartolo Colon will be on the mound for the Twins on Friday night for Big Sexy Night at the ballpark.
