Twins Playoff game

The Minnesota Twins play the Chicago White Sox in a one game playoff tonight. Blackburn going for the Twins and Danks going for the sox. Both those pitchers have kind of the same record and with the Twins bad away it will be a great matchup. I am a Twins fan but it doesn't matter who wins they will have to play the Rays in Tampa Bay and both teams aren't good on the road. Hopefully the Twins beat the sox  and somehow beat the rays and go on to be the third team in history to win the World Series from a one game plyoff. Hope and pray that the Twins win. GO TWINS!!!!!

Twins Bullpen

The Twins don't have that great of a bullpen except for Joe Nathan. So tell me why in tied situations in the ninth we bring in a reliever like Craig Breslow when like everyone else we don't bring in Joe Nathan. It doesn't make sense not to bring him in. Nathan could come in and shut it down and bring us to the tenth.

We have lost a couple games because we have not brought him in. Nathan is a all star pitcher and the best guy in our bullpen so we should just bring him in. The Twins have been doing good at going deep in to games but to be honest our bullpen has been shaky all year even though the pen is way better at home then on the road. Hopefully Eddie helps the bullpen and they stay strong the rest of the year. were going to nedd them if we want to win the division.

Red Hot Indians

I am a Minnesota Twins fan. I really dislike the White Sox. This race for the division has been fun to watch but if the Twins and White Sox keep winning then losing. The Indians have won 10 in a row tied for the most this season. If they keep going on the streak there on by the last series they could be right in it.

I know it is really unlikely because they are 10.5 behind the White Sox. The Indians have been really shaky this year even though they were a preseason favorite over the Sox. The Indians start a series a three game series with the Mariners. Who have the worst record in baseball. They have gave the Twins trouble all year. The White Sox start a three game set with the Red Sox. The Indians could be 7 back with 6 games left between the White Sox and three between the Twins.

Hopefully the Twins can sweep the Athletics and have a two game lead going into important division games. The White Sox have to play the Angels starting on September 5th. Again i keep saying this but the Twins have a road schedule but it still looks better then the White Sox schedule. The Indians are probably just to far back at this point.

Adam Everett Jersey

I heard about this a while ago but i just thought i would bring it up again. In a game against the Angels last series Everett's jersey had Minnestoa on it instead of course Minnesota. But before his at bat he ran down in the tunnel and got a new jersey after Former twin Denny Hocking noticed it on Everett when he was watching the game. Don't we got the bestest schools there is. I know that is was probably an error but how do you not spell M-I-N-N-E-S-T-O-A whoops I mean Minnesota. That's just showing what Everett's year has been like. He's hitting a solid .207 in 43 games. Hasn't Denard Span played 63 games in his first year and is hitting .309. I know Everett is having an off year after the two months he spent on the DL with a shoulder injury. Hopefully the Twins can still win the Division over the White Sox. Hope for the best because all we can do is watch.

It's Amazing how the Twins can stay in contention with the so called big clubs. The Twins are succesful. They do it by having everyone on the team do something little and it all adds up to something bigger.

Guys like buscher and lamb and everett dont play as much as Mourneau or mauer but when they do they are pretty good. Span and Gomez are awfully good to coming from the minors. Good thing we found Span otherwise we would have been screwed in right field.

I know that everyone says the bullpen is bad. Which sometimes i agree like the ten runs the Mariners got against us. At home the bullpen has actually been pretty good and they are probably tired from the season but i think they will be fine. They will have to be good in the playoffs. How about those young starters . Everyone except Liriano we'll probaly get 10 wins.

I think the Twins will end up winning the division!!
