Well, Yes, But NEXT Year...

There may not be crying in baseball, but there sure is swearing. To get all of the cursing out of her system following the ALDS sweep, TBL required a week and a half and seven different languages. Did you know that it's possible to get banned from BabelFish?

But oh, think of next season, when we will not have Juan Castro or Tony Batista clogging up the infield and, in the latter case, occasionally the basepaths. We will have Jason Bartlett all year, or else we will have Twins management in traction and TBL begging for bail, one or the other. We will have Francisco Liriano, and the reigning Cy Young winner, and Pat "Skippy" Neshek.

Juan Rincón will get his groove back, or else, and Jason Kubel will be healthier. Justin Morneau will go for 40, and Joe Mauer for .400. Boof Bonser will get 15 wins and three new tattoos, and Nick Punto will be the shortest third baseman ever to win a Gold Glove.

It'll happen. Just you wait.

P.S. Check out the remodeled and expanded TwinsCards.com (there's a link in my favorites, under "Baseball Blogs"). They've added all sorts of non-card memorabilia and are adding more all the time.
