Well its September.Normally this time of year the Twins would be deep into the pennet race and we would be excited for a potencial postseason birth but this year I think most of us are just ready for this season to be over and to move on to next year.This year has..well.Not been fun.I still love them and watch the games but geez,its like torture this year.
Its hard when on twitter and such and people who are fans of teams who well likely make the post season talk about how fun baseball is how much they love.I still love baseball but man,when you team is having a season like the Twins its not nearly as much fun,sometimes the excact oppisite
I wonder how you people who are fans of teams who have seasons like this every year do it.It sucks when you think how much well we lose bye today?where as last year this time,it was how much well we win bye?How the time changes.I know the Twinkies don’t exactly excel in the playoffs and losing to the Yankees every year is getting very very old but at least we ussualy do pretty well in the regualar season and we are ussually right there at the end.Sadly this season.That well not be the case
Theres been some good moments such as Francisco Lirianos no-hitter.Joe Nathan passing Rick Aguilera as the Twins as times saves leader.Jim Thome hitting 600 home runs and some amzing catchs by Ben Revere but the good times have been few and far between.
First of all congratulations to the lone Twins All-Star this year.Micheal Cuddyer.He definatly deserves it.Hes has been the one of the very few guys who has not been hurt all year and has been very good for the Twins.He well doe whatever the teams asks.Joe Mauer was on MLBN on Friday said Cuddy has done pretty much everything except pitch and catch and if they asked him he’d probably do that too.I think he would.Cuddy is the ulimate team player.Very classy and gives so much back to the community
Also congrats to Ben Revere on been Rookie of the month for June(along with Jemile Weeks of the Athletics).Revere has also been great for the Twins this year.He has made some amazing catches and had some big hits.And he flys arond those bases.Its pretty fun to watch him run.Oh and his smile.Him and Cuddy both.Adorable
About the whole “closer controversy” if you well.Matt Capps.Yeah he had a tough couple of games,to say the least.Blowing a save against the Brewrs(yeah we won’t talk about that game.Awful blowing a 7-0 lead at home)then got pulled in two games in a row.As much as that sucked.It happens to everyone.It happened to Joe Nathan.Brain Wilson has struggled a bit too.Hes one of the best closers in the game.Even Mo Rivera blows a save on occasion.It happens.
Some Twins fans where booing Capps after the blown save against the Brewers .Now I was unhappy as anyone else with how those couple games went but I guess I don’t believe in booing my own players.Not like it well make them feel better.They feel bad enough already.I support all the guys on my team(s).I may not be crazy about some but I support them.After being taken out for the second game in a Capps said.He could blame the fans for booing him and he would boo himself.That was sad.Yeah I feel he needed a break and didn’t want him out there but I still felt bad for the guy
I’m to young to have seen you play but you where one of the greatest Twins to ever play even the youngest of Twins fans know how much you mean to the organaization both on and of the field.I wish I cou;d have meet you.Everyone sayd you where the classiest guy.I wish you could teach me to sign my name,my hab=ndwritting is awful and they say you where a gret dance.I love to dance.All the stories I’ve heard are good.So thank you killer for everytning you gave the Twins and baseball.If everyone in the world was half as good as Harmon Killiebrw,it would be pretty damn good
Happy 75 birthday Killer
Well lets just say.The start of the Twins season was..well ugly.Brutal.Nothing could go right for the Twinkies.It seemd.Countless injuries and errors that Twins teams just don’t make .The offense couldn’t score and pitching wasn’t consistent.Every possiable thing went wrong.Or so it seemed.
Lately though the Twins have been more like..the Twins.They have now won 11 of 13.They have been scoring runs.(they only got one today but that was against Mark Buehrle and they won.So well take it)Pitching has been lights and going deep into ballgames and throwing complete games(we all know how much Bert loves that)the bullpen which a month ago was a huge problem has settled down and being doing its job
Now you expect the them to win.In April and May you always thought.Oh how bad well Twins lose tonight?what was the reason for the awful start?the lack of home games?injures or just a bad start?all of the above?well who knows.All I know is I like this team alot better.The most amazing thing they are doing all this with a team half full of minor leaguers.The kids are doing their part though and the veterans are too.Cuddyer has been on a homer tear lately(his homor was the lone run today)
Things are great for the Twinkies right now.Lets keep it that way
