How about the Twins going for five straight games having 14+ hits? First time since 1924 they've done that. Delmon Young is all I can say. Mauer has come around since the break, too, which I had a feeling was going to happen anyways.
I don't think there is a time table for Justin Morneau's return, but I read that he's 'feeling better' lately. We know the Twins can hit, so if they add a bullpen arm at the deadline, they might start to sneak off with the Central. The Tigers are fading and I'd like to see the same thing happen to the Sox once they get past this part of the AL West schedule.
Young has three mult-hit games in a row. He's on fi-YA.
What the hell are you talking about? The Mets have been on a "Chicago-esque futility streak" for their whole existence, minus several trips to the big dance. They've been mired in stupidity/mediocrity since 86.
