Wow, did we lose interest in this season! I guess the best thing we can say is - it's over.

But, for those of you who are stat geeks (like me) or gluttons for punishment (also, me!): the blog TwinkieTown posted an article with some of end-of-season stats. Some are real eye openers.

Which is why I prefer listening to our own announcers. They will acknowledge fine performances on both sides of the game.

WooHoo - a win against the Yankees!
I'm a bit annoyed with ESPN - Duffey pitches 5+ perfect innings, and ESPN focuseson the pitch velocity of the YANKEE pitcher (not mentioning he gave up 4 homers!)

What a crazy game last night! I wasn't able to watch (I'm in the Philly blackout area, and I couldn't find the game on TV), but I listened to some of it, and checked the score from time to time. Looking forward to watching the hightlights later today, but really hoping Gibson has a good outing in tonight's game.

Well, that last game was a let down.

In former Twin news - Justin Morneau has signed with the White Sox! From some of the articles I've seen, some Sox fans aren't quite ready to forgive him for some comments he made back in his days with Minnesota. He's on the DL recovering from elbow surgery, but we should see him after the All Star break.

Did I call it or what! Two games against Miami, two wins. Neither pretty, but we'll take it!

In the individual spot light - Eduardo Nunez now has enough plate appearances to qualify for the AL batting average leader board!

The Tampa Bay series was brutal. 11 home runs in 4 games - 5 by Longoria alone. Since when are the Rays a home run team?

The bullpen is really struggling. Remember when the bullpen was the best part of the Twins?

Oh well. Maybe the bright colors in Miami will help the Twins get back on track.

The Twins WON!!! Three homers, and the bullpen didn't give up a run!. emoticon

Hoping the team can carry this out to the west coast. Of course, Seattle is pretty good this year, so......

Actually, I did see a blog that described the Twins as "a tire fire in a dumpster on the Titanic". Alas, I think the writer may have had a point.

Yeah, I am the Twins news geek on this board. emoticon

I didn't get to see much baseball this weekend - worked Friday, Saturday and Sunday. But from what I did catch, sounds like Bautista continued using Target Field as a launching pad.

Royals up next - and KC has won 6 of their last 9 games. Here's hoping the Twins can get it going.

Thank goodness for Cleveland - the Twins seem to be able to beat the Indians! emoticon

What a crazy game last night! I heard the pregame on the radio before going into a store. By the time I got back in the car, the score was 2-0. By the time I got home and the game turned on in my apartment, it was 6-0. Yikes! Was a fun comeback, but due more to luck than skill, I fear.

Berrios was sent back to Rochester today. Feel bad for him, but he just wasn't cutting it at the major league level. Hopefully Gibson comes back in better form.

Saw something on a Twins blog that Dozier is playing with some sort of hip injury. Had anyone else heard that? Wonder how much that's affecting him?

As DH said yesterday, at least Barrios pitches once every 5 days!

And Sano got a birthday homer, so that's fun too! Time to find the silver lining happiness in each game - there always is one - and ignore the score.

Just checked the box score - I think a rain out would have been preferable to the pounding the Twins took today. emoticon

What is happening to the pitching staff?

Bummed the Twins were rained out last night, but hoping the rain helped clear the air.

So much for May being the charm for the Twins.

It was nice to see a good game from Twins pitcher Duffy yesterday, but Chicago's Quintana was better.

Sorry to be so quiet - April has been a killer month at work.

So, our Twins got off to a rocky start this season, but May was the team's hot month last year - maybe they'll repeat that pattern.

Go Twins!

It's just a few days away - Monday is opening day for our Minnesota Twins!

We've been a quiet bunch this off season - but it's time to get back together and talk baseball and life. Post baseball comments here!
