Very proud of our club.It was too bad not see Sano and Buxton finish this game, but makes me imagine the good things to come.

Well kind of a let down to end it, but not a big surprise.What's the odds on improving by 26 games next season?

he gone!

The Yankees are our daddy.


Surely there must be better role models for us...

Keep apologizing. He sucked when it mattered. 

Don't expect to build up the weak by pulling down the strong.

If Mauer's hit is five feet further and Judge's is five feet short, Twins win 7-6.

What did you expect, a four run homer with no one on?

Just watched that highlight where the camera can't get Gardner into frame on that Joe Mauer liner to left field with two on.Did he really catch it? What was the cameraman's name? The producer's? The ghost of Phil Cuzzi haunts us.

I'm mostly lurk and rarely post these days, but it was a fun season, and I wanted to thank all involved for making it more fun - I enjoy the content and the conversation.

 

The ending was tough, more so because it was in the Bronx.I hate the Yankees with the white hot passion of a thousand burning suns.If this had happened in Boston or Houston, I wouldn't be nearly as ticked off as I am right now.

 

But the future is bright.This team can score runs. The rotation and bullpen need help.

 

Here's hoping that the postseason losing streak ends 1 year from right now.

Uhh even if erv got that strike 3 call, it would only have been out #2. Castro nearly fell over trying to catch it. He was not going to get the call. Alfonso Marquez was the least of the reasons the twins lost tonight

 The next batter, Castro, flew out. 3 outs - inning over. It is history. To deny how the bad ball and stike calls change game after game after game is just not paying attention and disregarding the effect it has on the outcome of game after game after game. After game after game after game.

 When I saw it live, I started jumping up and down and making a fool of myself. I thought I had seen it go out.!

Well, I was wrong. See you next Spring.

Thanks for all the fun from all you posters on here and to the Twins to taking all of us into October!!!!

 

Come the Spring, we will be tied for first and hopefully we will end up there, at the end :go:

And always remember, life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by those moments that take our breath away.
