    Twins got screwed

    Only the Yankees can get a strikeout turned into a RBI double.

    Cough 4 out ninth inning cough. And Posada still would've scored on Jeter's base knock.

    I've never seen the Twins get lucky.

    Re: Twins got screwed

    The Twins can handle all the adversity in the world during the regular season, but just go to pieces in the playoffs. I bet getting ejected felt good for Gardy.

    I hate the Yankees, and am sick and tired of their smug fans.
    Unless you live in NY, cheering for the Yankees is like being a Harlem Globetrotters fan....

    If the Twins lose this series, Gardenhire will set a record for being the first manager to lose six straight playoff series.

    We're Iowa State fans. Iowa is a state with no professional sports team, many of whom latch on (for god knows what reason) to your Twins so don't judge fanhood in a state where there's no MLB. I'm not even a Yankees fan but find it obnoxious when someone, especially those conveniently located in a state with pro teams, tells another person who they can and can't root for.

    Smug? Its the truth. If Berkman strikes out, Gardner is still on with a bunt single, moving Posada to second, who scores on Jeter's single.

    Ironically, it was because of a Twins game in '96 where Tino Martinez and Bernie Williams signed balls for me and ******* Radke didn't that I'm a Yankee fan.

    Oh, and one more thing. All the announcers and sports personalities drooling over the Yanks is getting old too!

    It is kind of annoying though when someone from a state like Iowa roots for the Yankees, Cowboys, Lakers, Red Wings, Duke Basketball and Florida football. And yes, I knew someone who liked all of these team.

    Re: Twins got screwed

    The Twins could play the Yankees 100 times and would probably win one or two. The Yankees own them, plain and simple

    Re: Twins got screwed

    I used to be a big fan of baseball. Any more I dont even watch it or follow it. Without a salary cap and/or revenue sharing it will be the ruin of baseball
    The yankees have the money to buy virtually what ever guys they want
    and their isnt a thing any other team can do about it.
