Let's begin with this: Twins East are the Pittsburgh Pirates, just to throw that out there.

Everybody now: Let's go Twins East (clap clap, clap clap clap), Let's go Twins East.

Fine, the only real reason that we call them Twins East is because of Francisco Liriano (tonight's starter), Justin Morneau, and Vikings punter Jeff Locke. OK, it's not the same Jeff Locke, but Morneau and Liriano are enough for Twins fans that are desperate to see a winner, right?

The Pirates are a winner, and tonight they get their chance to move on in the NL playoffs, facing off in the Wild Card game against Cincinnati.

Here's all you need to know about the Pirates, beginning with a 60-second video tribute to their season.
