David vs Goliath

My Minnesota Twins are right in the thick of things. Many people including me had them written off for dead back towards the end of June. However, since the beginning of June they have amazed everyone who knows anything about baseball.

I see the Twins in similar fashion to a kid in school that comes from a working family. You know the kids whose parents make enough to get by but no room for frills. The kid whose clothes are purchased from Target or the outlet malls. Sneakers come from Payless or maybe Samís Club. Despite all that he just shines at school and does his best to irritate the rich kids.

Basically itís a feel good story to see this small market team competing with the big spenders. They did it back in 1987 and again in 1991. Just maybe they can do it again in 2006.

Go Twins.
