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 !!!!
