    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!

    ...end rant

    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.
