    Alex Kirilloff, Jorge Polanco to begin the season on injured list for the Twins

Yes, that means the Land of 10,000 Lakes slogan is inaccurate, but we Minnesotans don't like to be pretentious, remember? Add up all the lakes, and they still would fall short of the size, power and beauty of the Pacific Ocean. One advantage that body of water has is its ...
