10 years ago today, the Minnesota Twins became my favorite sports team, and Jason Kubel became my favorite player. After getting home from school (yes, I am a younger fan on this board), I went to the living room to watch the Twins take on the Angels. Jason Kubel had started the game off strong, but the bullpen had seemingly blew the game (sound familiar?). After some terrible defense on a "triple", Kubel just needed a homerun to complete a cycle. The game was 9-4, and the TV was only kept on FSN due to the chance of a cycle. During the 8th inning, the Twins slowly climbed back. Justin Morneau was intentionally walked to load the bases. And then:
I never got to go to the Metrodome, but saw the magic of the place in the few years of watching baseball in it on TV. While Target Field is an awesome place to watch a baseball game, the Metrodome had its quirks. The 2009 Minnesota Twins still have to be my favorite team of all time. Not many are left playing from that team. Francisco Liriano and Anthony Swarzak (!) are still hanging around. It is truly amazing how fast time flies.
Projected Starting Pitchers (if there is a game)
Jake Odorizzi , 0-2, 6.35 ERA
Trent Thornton, 0-1, 4.61 ERA
Let's play ball!
