“GO TWINS!” (Says Craig Finn of The Hold Steady)

…And I would be remiss in my duties as a MINNESOTA TWINS FANif I failed to commemorate tonight’s kickoff to the 2010 Twins-Yankees ALDS! Game 1 is set to begin about three hours from now at Target Field in Minneapolis (basically the Mecca-est Mecca in the history of baseball Meccas). Expect plenty of wicked stuff from tonight’s starting southpaws, Francisco Liriano and C.C. Sabathia. Oh, and also go ahead and expect Jim Thome to crack one all the way to Hennepin Ave., and the Twins to take the series in four games or less.

And to help wish our Twins well, we have a special new track from Craig Finn and the Baseball Project, “Please Don’t Call Them Twinkies.” Expect a lot of Minnesota name dropping, a tear-jerking tribute to Kirby Puckett’s homer in Game 6, and Finn’s best lyrical chronology this side of “Positive Jam“. GO TWINS!!
