I guess 2011 isn’t our year to win the World Series !!!

I guess I always had hope that the Twins could come back from being down so much to winning the division but I lost all hope after we started losing toward the end of July. We don’t have a great pitching staff, our players have been hurt one after another and we just keep making stupid mistakes.

But like in the years before each of our World Series in 87 and 91 we had losing records the previous season. That brings me hope that next year we can win it . We need to sign some pitchers and relief guys and have the M & M boys healthy and we will be set. I know its giving them a lot of hope but teams have come from worst to first from one season to the next.

I have enjoyed watching guys like Luke Hughes and Trevor Plouffe up for the Twins but I know they are new at it and it will take time for them to become better . Our team just isn’t the same without Justin and Joe and I guess its just been the season of injuries for us and nothing ever goes our way. I feel that If something bad  can happen, it does happen to the Twins.  They get so concentrated on trying to hit the ball and when they can’t its all they think about so they make mistakes in the playing field that shouldn’t be happening. We are usually a team with the fewest mistakes and this year we are one of the tops in mistakes. 

And I’m sick of always losing to the stupid Skankees. Its like we get scared when we play them and can’t beat them. I attended Game 1 of the series on Thursday and it was exciting in the beginning but towards the later innings it just got out of hand and we couldn’t do anything right. Matt “Crapps” had to go and allow to runs when his job was to get the last out of the inning so that Twins had a chance to tie it in the 9th inning. It was 4-6 when Matt came in and 4-8 when he left…NOT GOOD!!!!! We lost Game 2 1-8 and funny enough our only run was a Trevor Plouffe home run in the first inning. We only had one other hit and it came in the 8th inning and it was Luke Hughes getting a single. Isn’t funny how the 2 guys got hits weren’t even in the majors last year. Well hopefully we can salvage Games 3 & 4 and have the series tied 2-2-. Let’s hope anyways but I’m not holding my breath…lol !!!!

No words to explain how I feel!!!

So the Twins are making me very angry right now. There are no words to explain how I feel about how they have been playing since the season started. We go from first to worst within 3 weeks. We are basically the same team from last year expect JJ Hardy and Orlando Cabrera are gone. We shouldn’t be 6-12 with Cleveland leading the division at 12-3.  It depresses me to even watch them anymore cause they are playing so horrible. I just want to wake up and have them start winning again. I am attending the game on Easter Sunday, hopefully they will win or else I don’t know what to do. I am at wits end with this team for that this is my first blog this season since I don’t have much to blog with them losing every game practically.  Well ta ta for now. Maybe in a few weeks I will have a better attitude.

And now we have a 9 game lead....

Woohoo....The Twins dominated the series over the White Sox and I can't wait for what else has to come. We scored 26 runs over the 3 game series and they only scored 11 runs. We domintated in hitting, pitching and defense. I'm heading to the game tonight and im excited. Im so happy to go and I hope they can still dominate for the rest of the season. We are .5 game off the Tampa Bay Rays for the best record in the American League also and if we can get home field advantage in the playoffs, teams would have to come into Target Field to play the hottest team in baseball.

I cannot wait to see JJ Hardy tonight. He's definitely my favorite player and is on a 7 game hitting steak. Im excited to see him and even the icing on the cake is that I get to meet him at Fan HQ tomorrow at Ridgedale mall. Hopefully is still the sweetest guy that I know him to be.

Bring on the Oakland A's tonight and many more games that we have to play!!!!!!!!

A September to Remember!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I guess its about time that I actually start blogging again because its been awhile. The TWINS have been the hottest team in baseball since the all star break and I hope they can keep going forward. We actually have a chance to get home field advantage in the playoffs which would be really sweet for us.

Today starts a really important series for us against the White Sox. Tonight's pitching match up is Liriano vs. Danks, with Duensing pitching tomorrow and thursday with Pavano. I think our 3 pitchers can give us the best chance of winning along with actually getting some hits unlike the series in Cleveland until sundays game.

I hope tonight is that start of some amazing things and I hope it brings us into October with some great playing and leads us to the World Series. Best of Luck TWINS and hope u bring us home some wins.

More TEXAS heartbreak!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So It doesnt help that Justin Morneau has been out since the beginning of July but apparently we forgot how to win in TEXAS. We need to get out of here as soon as we can.

Its not that we have horrible pitching and we loose like a billion to one. We have lost 3 close games with 3 great pitchers that have shown us in the past that they can be wonderful. One mistake costs us the game and we try so hard to come back and win and always fall up short. Hopefully tomorrow with Liriano and texas's ace Cliff Lee, we can finally win won since we havent lost 4 straight in forever. We need to leave texas and move onto seattle and hopefully win their while the white sox better loose to baltimore.

We need Justin Morneau back sooner then later but I know his health is the most important so I hope he recovers quickly and come help us win the pennant. JJ Hardy needs to start hitting again and Joe Mauer needs to quit striking out in the most important times. He only struck out once during high school...why cant he be like that again!!.

Well, sorry to rant but Im sick of the TWINS loosing and I just want to see them win again. They have the capabilities of hitting and pitching, we just need to start showing it again. I love baseball and the Twins and just want some wins..what else can a girl ask for?? well except maybe a date with JJ Hardy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hardy is back which makes my heart happy!!!

Well, how's everyone going. The Twins have had some ups and downs lately and hopefully things will turn around for the good.

We just started a 4 game series with the Tampa Bay Rays, which started on thursday. Today is game 3 and we are winning as of right now. We lost on thursday when I attended the game with Joe. It was alot of fun but we ended up losing in 10 innings after Rauch blew the save. Game 2 was last night and we ended up winning 2-1 which was scary but atleast we won.

Im glad JJ Hardy is back because its been forever since I have seen him play. I want to go to go game again soon that I can see him.

well i guess we blew the lead today and now its tied 4-4 with no outs in the 8th inning.

Where have the TWINS gone????

Well, sorry guys I haven't been around much in the last month to blog. I have been watching the Twins though. I don't try to miss a game unless Im really busy doing something and then I usually catch the highlights on ESPN. I guess alot has happened since I last blogged. The White Sox are creeping up on us in the Central division when 3 weeks ago they were 8 1/2 games behind and practictly left for dead. An important series with Detriot is coming the next three days and if we loose, we loose being in first place in the Central Division which we have held since the season started. We are now a half game ahead of Detriot and the White sox are only 1 1/2 games back.

Interleague play is supposed to be our friend. We have always done well against NL teams but I guess this yr was just not our year and we ended up 8-10 which is no good if we want to win the Central Division. I dont understand why we have to play all the good teams in the NL but the Tigers get to play all the crappy teams that we could actually beat. We had to play Milwaukee, Atlanta, Colorado, Philly and the New York Mets. Pretty much all of those teams are good and the New York Mets are playing some awesome baseball right now and are one of the hottest teams in baseball right now.

Playing the Mets is hard for me because they are pretty much my other favorite team which is good cause we would only have two chances to play them, in interleague play and then in the World Series. I wish we would have played better this weekend against them but I guess it doesnt always go our way.

I do miss JJ Hardy these days and hope he gets better cause im going to some TWINS games and I would like to see him. The infield misses him and we need him back asap. I would love it if the Twins got Joe Crede back too, then I would be in heaven.

I guess I probably have said to much this time. Well good luck to the TWINS this week and hope we can beat up on Detriot and Tampa Bay during our 7 game homestand before we head away from Target Field for 6 games before the All-star break. Hopefully I will be attending a few games before the all star break, Im going on thurs for sure and hopefully against Tampa Bay too.
