The TwinkieTown blog is giving the needle to the Twins today, writing an imaginary tale of how the radio broadcasts of the local nine are headed from KTWN-FM to MPR next season.

Best paragraph: "The team says that no further changes are anticipated, but (Twins president Dave) St. Peter left the door open for future moves. "I was in line at Dogwood Coffee, and the guys in front of me were complaining about how The Current was too rigidly formatted and how they just listened to KFAI (90.3 FM) and Marc Maron podcasts now. They were wearing ironic Crocs, so we definitely have to pay attention to what they're saying."

The rest? Right here.
