It was 3 games.

With only 4 teams out of 14 going to the playoffs it's quite a feat just to be there. And the Twins have done it more often than anyone else lately in the AL Central, however the White Sox and Tigers are the only ones thus far to advance.

I'd take the Twins' Lineup over anyother in the AL Central, howver the Twins' starting rotation is garbage, I expect Duensing to be starting soon, replacing either Baker (hurt), Blackburn (garbage) or Slowey (kind of garbage).

Maybe some White Sox fan can set me straight, but by my reckoning..I don't believe Chicago has won a game since this thread praising them was started..interesting how that works sometimes.

Very kind of you sir, but it is clear the Tigers and White Sox are the class of the division/league and will both advance to the playoffs. The Twins are simply not up to the task at hand and will soon disappear from contention, never to return.

I was first, just like the Twins in October 2010. The picture from the future proves my prophecy.
