You can't win 'em all

Posted at 12:30 PM on September 22, 2006 by Ben Tesch

Minnesota entered yesterday's game with a .001 lead in the division over the Tigers, after they had lost earlier in the day to the Orioles. In a strange turn of events, Johan finally lost a game. Sure, it's his first one since the All-Star break, but it's coming at expense of his MVP considerations when it's this late in the season when everyone's finally paying attention. It probably doesn't help that Ortiz hit two homeruns as well. ESPN.com had a "Who's the MVP?" poll yeserday and Santana barely registered. Morneau easily beat him out in the midwest, even. What will it take for Santana to get the MVP? Will the big markets simply win out? Will the voters look at the numbers at the end and see Johan's utter dominance and value to his team?

City Pages goes Twins-crazy

In case you hadn't noticed the controversial cover already, this week's City Pages is chock-full of Twins articles. Be sure to pick it up sometime this rainy weekend (or check it out online, if that's your preference), while watching the Twins magic number get lower and lower.
