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.
This was disappointing, in that Vikings kind of way. They were just so uninspired and scared.
