The Minnesota Twins entered the day with a magic number of 2, meaning a win in Detroit + a Cleveland loss vs the White Sox, would equal our first American League Central Division Title since 2010…. nearly a decade.

It took awhile but the Twins ended up easily disposing of the Tigers, 5-1. Randy Dobnak was dominant again and might just find himself with a prominant role on an MLB playoff team in a matter of weeks. Luis Arraez went deep in the 7th inning to take the lead and then Eddie Rosario put one over the fence in the 8th, to seal the deal.

And just like that, the magic number was down to 1.

Then, we waited for Cleveland, who didn’t start their game vs the White Sox until 7:10 PM. The White Sox went up early and never looked back. It wasn’t even nerve-wracking. 

When the final out happened in Chicago, officially dubbing the Minnesota Twins as the 2019 AL Central Champs, the celebration began! (I’ll embed the  celebration videos below, as the come in.)

I picked the Twins to win the division before the season started but I never expected it to be like this. What a season… what a team! I CAN’T FUCKING BELIEVE WE GET TO LOSE YEARS OF OUR LIFE WATCHING PLAYOFF BASEBALL AGAIN THANK GOD/ALIENS!!! BRING ON THE YANKEES (HOPEFULLY) BECAUSE THAT PRESCHOOL BALLPARK HAS NO CHANCE VS THIS TEAM AND IF YOU THINK I’M AFRAID OF THOSE DISGUSTING PIN STRIPES THEN YOU AREN’T FOLLOWING THIS SITE CLOSE ENOUGH LET’S FUCKING GOOOOOOOO!

And now, Cleveland might not even make the Wild Card Game…. hahahahahhahaha
