Ain’t nothin’ I can say.

We believe in curses. We believe in the ability to jinx a team. We didn’t want to write about the Twins/White Sox series because even though it doesn’t make sense, we didn’t want to have any kind of influence on the Twins, the series, or any of the players.

Whenever we get our hopes up, the Vikings crush our dreams. Whenever we think the Twins are dead, they come storming back.

We will watch and we will love every second of it, but we can’t possibly say anything that hasn’t already been said. This is going to be a great weekend of baseball. And, the Vikings are playing too. It’s nice to have those priorities this close to October.

The playoffs start today for the Twins.

The Twins can't split this weekend's series with Tampa Bay. They need to take 3 of 4. In fact, they probably need to sweep this series to have a chance at making the playoffs.

Currently sitting at 2.5 games out of first place in the AL Central, the Twins continue to struggle holding leads and closing out games. The White Sox take on Kansas City this weekend and we don't see them losing more than one game in that series. More than likely, they will sweep.

If the Twins are more than 2.5 games out of first when the series with the White Sox starts next week, we can all stop pretending this team has a chance at post season play.

Gus Frerotte might be the answer. Or not.

We have no idea what to think of Gus Frerotte at this point in his career. But, we know he isn't Tavaris Jackson and right now that is good enough for us.

It's no secret we don't really like Brad Childress as a head coach and this move is either going to rejuvenate or end his head coaching career with the Vikings. Something had to be done about the quarterback play and its not TJack's fault. He wasn't good enough right now to be a starter. He might not ever be good enough.

Now Chilly is turning to Gus. Good luck. Open up the play book, be assertive, and let him throw his 2 TD's and 2 INT's every game. With word coming down yesterday that Adrian Peterson has a strained hammy, things are going to be that much tougher. But it can't get any worse for the Vikings with Gus in there. Right?

Let's hope.

Same as it ever was.

The D-line still can't get to the QB. T-Jack still can't complete a routine 10-yard out pass. The special teams play was brutal. Visanthe Shianco still can't hold onto the ball. Adrian Peterson is still a stud.

You could look at just about any game from last year and compare it to last night -- it looks the same.

The Colts come to town next week. Who has a better chance of going 0-2, T-Jack or Peyton Manning?
