“That was the best game I’ve EVER been a part of..”

cabrera

Direct quote from Orlando Cabrera after last night’s game.

Really, Orlando?  Have you forgotten Games 4 and 5 of the 2004 ALCS already?

Quibbling aside, that was an all-timer last night.  Seemed like the wind was taken out of the Metrodome baggie when the Tigers put up that 3 spot, but they sure fought back.  What didn’t that game have?  Clutch home runs, great defense, all the drama you could ask for…

So are the Twins merely a sacrificial lamb for the mighty Yankees?  Probably…but maybe they have a little ‘2007 Rockies’ in them.  They enter the playoffs hotter than a pistol; maybe the momentum from last night combined with Sabbathia’s usual playoff performance and the Twins could possibly take 1 of 2 in the Bronx.  I think they have a shot if they can go back to Minnesota with a split.

I’ve had a soft spot for the Twins for a long time…as many of you know, the former Red Sox AA team in New Britian, CT became the Twins AA team in 1995.  I’ve seen a lot of these Twins play in the minors over the years, so I’m definitely pulling for them regardless of the fact that they are playing the Yanks.

  4. IM FUKING TIRED OF BOSTON SPORTWRITERS WHO TRY AND DO THE LIBERAL HEADY THING BY LOOKING AT MATTERS ‘FROM THE OTHER SIDE’…

    THERE IS NO OTHER SIDE. IT DOES NOT EXIST. THERE IS OUR SIDE AND OUR SIDE ONLY!

    THE OPPONENTS ARE NOT TO BE THOUGHT OF AS HUMANS WITH FEELINGS. THEY ARE SHAMANS FROM THE NETHERWORLD, TRYING TO CORRUPT OUR BLESSED BOSTON EXISTENCE.

  7. Rich, my brother, you sound totally stressed out son. Just sit back and hold your cocoa under your nose and breath in the aroma. Then adjust your quilt around you until snug and cozy. Then sip slowly and feel it’s warmth mellowing you out. Then call 911 and ask to be taken to the nearest mental institution for electric shock therapy until after the playoffs…GO YANKEES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :0

  8. I have never been a fan of full instant replay in MLB until last night. Did a blind man umping 1st base cost the Sox the game. Probably not. The Sox scoring 0 runs may have been a factor in the loss. There has to be at least 32 AL MLB umps to choose from in picking the 12 umps for the 1st AL round. There are a few ways C.B Bucknor was chosen. 1) The MLB crews were picked out of a hat. OR 2)MLB had no Jamaican born Brooklyn residents who twice earned worst MLB umpire in the playoff crews.

  9. I see Obama just won the Nobel Peace Prize.

    Amazing. It all works for him.

    You know for centuries theyve said one day the you know will come.

    Obama will be in tv in 1/2 an hour, talking to his lemmings.

    The ‘Process’ is cranking up, and it cant be stopped.
