No to 100.

If the Twins want to finish above .500 for the season, they'd better get the wins in against Chicago this weekend. We play Kansas City the next four days, and they are determined not to lose 100 this season. Unfortunately for us, they've lost 99. Today's win was another 9th inning comeback: down 3-2 in the bottom of the 9th, Denny Hocking (remember him?) hit a bases-loaded 2rbi single.

Detroit had to walk 2003 ROY Angel Berroa to load the bases and keep the double play in effect. After an awful 2004 and start to 2005, Angel is having a great fall. 18 rbi in April-June, 18 rbi in Sept, hitting .351/.364/.527.

If I'm a MVP voter, I'm finding a way to get Matt Stairs a vote, even for tenth place. But then, I like to be weird. He is hitting .395/.481/.581 for the month.
