Do people in this town finally hate the Twins?

Do people in this town finally hate the Twins?
What they have done the second half of this season has been incredible. They were behind the Tigers at the All Star break.
The knock on Twins' manager Ron Gardenhire has been postseason failure. We'll see if it is any different this season. I can't believe the Twins have done this with that starting pitching rotation. Carl Pavano has been the difference.
He's an example of why you don't make trades within your own division. The Indians handed the Twins two American League Central titles by trading Pavano to Minnesota for minor league pitcher Yohan Pino.

Why begrudge success?

I can't stand you Pat Caputo. You are the WORST radio host. You can't pronounce any name correctly, nor can you get any idiom right. You're a jackass, you dope.

Because the success came at the expense of the Tigers, who most of the people in this area root for.

Why in the world would you hate a winning team?

Some might feel hate toward a rival as a child, but most grow up and out of that sort of pointless energy draining non thinking.

Lynn Benoit,
Because if people didn't think in those terms, there wouldn't be such a thing as rivalries in sports - and they wouldn't be nearly as much fun.

Pat Caputo,

I must disagree. Rivalries are a big part of the joy of sports but hate has no place in it. You are inspired by a rival to play harder and win. Hate is a distraction.

Lynn Benoit,
Please. It's all in a relative sense.
