Just heard a wild stat. Tonight was the 10th win of the season for the Twins without hitting a HR.

They won 9 games all season last year without a HR.

Read an article in the paper today, that the Twins, due to the rumored (if not fact) status of MLB deadening balls, they have reverted to small ball. To refresh the memory:
<p class=”speakable-content”>The name Piranhas came from an unlikely source of praise, former White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen. Speaking about the original Piranhas of 2006, Guillen said:</p>

“All those piranhas — blooper here, blooper here, beat out a ground ball, hit a home run, they’re up by four. They get up by four with that bullpen? See you at the national anthem tomorrow. When I sit down and look at the lineup, give me the New York Yankees. Give me those guys because they’ve got holes. You can pitch around them, you can pitch to them. These little guys? Castillo and all of them? People worry about the catcher, what’s his name, Mauer? Fine, yeah, a good hitter, but worry about the little [guys], they’re on base all the time.”
