Off to the Races...

The Minnesota faithful are crossing their fingers and lighting candles in the Twin Cities curches hoping that Fransisco Liriano, doesn't need to have (gulp) Tommy John surgery which could sideline him for the 2007 season.

The Wild Card leading Twins, have officially shut down Liriano, known as "The Franchise" after his dominanation of AL hitters, thus far. If there is any positive news for the Twins after Wednesday's game is that Matt Garza (named USA Today's Sports Weekly, Pitcher of the Year) shut down the Oakland offense and kept the Twins in the game. Garza who struggled a little bit when he was promoted is now back in the rotation, which is a crapshoot after "Mr. Automatic" Johan Santana.

Many people are jumping off the Twins bandwagon, much like the Titanic, but I believe the Twins are still going to hang around. They were still hanging around the race after Liriano went down the first time and their bullpen is the best on the planet. If they can get some servicable starts out of the starting pitchers, watch out forthe Mighty Minnesota Twins.

Until next time.
