The Bleacher Bums: October 6, 2006 Archive

Midnight for Cinderella.

Posted at 8:22 PM on October 6, 2006 by Josh Lee (1 Comments)

Sometime next week, I'll probably write a post that tries to put the Twins' 0-3 ALDS loss in perspective. I'll write something about how amazing it is that Minnesota was in the postseason at all, and how being in a position to be upset like this took an incredible set of unlikely coincidences and good luck. I'll write about what a wonderful thing the team accomplished, erasing the first two months of the season and storming their way back to the top of the division like a team with nothing to lose, because they had nothing to lose.

But I can't write that post now, because the good luck has run out, the good feelings of the regular season don't mean a lot in the postseason, and as it turns out, the Twins actually had plenty to lose. I'll be back after I'm done sulking.
