    Are you there God? It's me a Twins fan...

    Why can't you let the Twins beat the Yankees?

    They did one too many times already this season.

    This is the first night since coming back Mo has looked back to Mo. Thanks Twins!

    Baseball seriously needs a salary cap to keep the Yankees from buying the rest of the league!!

    First and third, nobody out. Hudson, Mauer and Morneau the next three up. You think Twins are in good shape, right? Hudson lines one that some how Pettitte snags. Mauer grounds into a double play. Good lord. Just put all games against the Yankees in the loss column...then at least you don't risk injury or use up innings for the pitching staff.

    Lame excuse.

    I don't give a crap what the rest of the league does as long as the Pohlad's put out to keep our home grown talent here. This ballpark gives them the extra revenue they claim to have needed for years now.

    And I hate Nick Swisher. Such a doorknob

    Should've had Hudson bunt Span over to 2nd to avoid the DP when Mauer got up...stupid.

    What?!

    The game is tied with no outs and the go ahead run at 3rd, you're going to waste an out getting a pointless run over to 2nd?

    Not using it as an excuse.....we got beat plain and simple. Just really tired of hearing about the Yankees and their "coachdags like" payroll!!

    Dude, you'd have guys at 2nd and 3rd with 1 out and guarantee Mauer AND Morneau make it to the plate.

    If Span was at 2nd, Mauer's ground ball would've probably scored what's his butt at 3rd...

    A squeeze -- sure. A sac bunt? Absolutely not.

    I hope more than anything that 7 years from now people are talking about a Twins core of Mauer, Morneau, and Span a la Jeter, Posada, and Mo. The Yankees have kept that core intact thanks to their payroll, and that's what I want to see the Twins org. do in the years to come.

    Now, I agree that Rodriguez, Sabathia, and most of all Tex are overpaid. No argument there.

    There's no guarantee that Span gets to second.

    And besides, your only concern is the baserunner closest to home.

    Guess I'm an out-of-the-box type of thinker...do anything to get that run on 3rd home...figure you get 1 run then bring Rauch in for the top of the 9th...

    Although bringing Rauch in didn't work out too well...
