Twins win!

A fantasy end to the Twins sparkling season: On the last day, they pull out the division title by beating the White Sox while the hapless Kansas City Royals, losers of 100 games, came back from a 7-0 deficit to beat the Tigers 10-8 in 12 innings. Amazing. The only day of the year the Twins spend in first place is the only day it really matters.

Joe Mauer wins the batting title, the first time a catcher has won a batting title in the American League in 100 years. Santana is the best pitcher in baseball, hands down. Morneau is a possible MVP. Torii Hunter has returned to good form. This team is fun to watch, and watch them I have. Hundreds of hours this season spent in front of the television--and not one regret.
