Well friends, it happened again. Despite all the things Minnesota sports fans tried to point to: Joe Mauer, Target Field, a stable bullpen, first to clinch, Danny Valencia, home field advantage, etc. we have been swept out the postseason for the second year in a row by the New York Yankees (AKA Minnesota's own personal kryptonite).
- It was ugly.
- It was depressing.
- It was embarrassing.
- And now it's over.
And Opening Day seems like forever away.
Until April 1, 2011...best of luck to the Rangers and Rays.

I'll tell you what I do.
