The Adam Dunn K Watch crossed state lines last weekend to see the Big Breeze inaction—er, in action—in Minnesota.

The Sox swept the three games against the Twins. Going into the series, this seemed as likely as Rahm Emanuel sending his kids to public school. The Twins have bedeviled the Sox in recent years, especially in the land of 10,000 lakes, all of which are above average.

It’s been tough losing to the Twins the past few seasons, because my Minnesota relatives like to rub it in, something I would never do if the tables were turned. I have great respect for the whole state of Minnesota, which has contributed many fine Ole and Lena jokes to our culture, and whose state bird, the Loony Congresswoman, is now running for President.
