New site is up!

I got everything set up. The layout is different, but it’s still on WordPress so everything else should be the same. I will not make another post on this site. The new link is: twinsnottwinkies.wordpress.com. You can just click on that and it will take you there. PLEASE ADD THE NEW LINK TO YOUR FAVORITES AND DELETE THIS ONE.

Pitchers from the Royals are really bad, allowing Twins to win 3rd straight
