    Heart beating fast. Palpitations starting. Twins and Tigers now tied in first place with one game to play. Tomorrow is going to be mental regardless of how things pan out for the Twins.

      I watched the Royals-Twins game and it was a mini-classic. Fantastic win for the Twins and it’s all goes down to today, just as everyone (Tigers excepted) had hoped for.
