You Get A Gold Star!
All I know is that the Twins better not use up their entire run quota today and then score NONE tomorrow night. I will not be happy if that is the case. I want this bashing to continue on through the weekend, and even through next week (even though I won't be able to witness anything after tomorrow, until next weekend.)
I don't know that I even want to talk about last night's game. We were doing so well (well Liriano was...) and then...then...he fell apart and just collapsed. It was bad. It was like watching a train wreck...I just couldn't turn it off either. I think that may be the worst part of games like that. I didn't want to watch any more because it was so ridiculous, but for some reason I never picked up the TV remote to turn it off an watch something (anything) better.
Their 3 Stars of the Game were revoked last night. Yes I know there were hits...6 of them...but no one got more than 1 hit. It was sad...and not what I like to see from the Twins.
Today...I'm listening to the game and I am speechless. Why couldn't they have used some of these runs and spaced them out over the 3 games. Really, did they need to score 20 runs? I'm not complaining, at all.
Highlights...Tolbert first ever MLB home run; Cuddy getting a 3-run home run; Mauer getting a grand slam!; Crede getting a home run.
Low notes: Justin and Punto going hitless...Justin 0-2 (though he did get walked 3 times) and Nicky going 0-4...with 2 K's. Tolbert getting an error to cost the Twins getting the shut out. Matt Tolbert basically broke even today.
3 Stars of the Game: (this is semi-difficult with how many runs and hits the Twins got today)
1. Joe Mauer (even though he got taken out in the 7th he still went 3-4 with 2 doubles, 6 RBI's.)
2. Michael Cuddyer (4-6 with 3 RBI's)
3. Nick Blackburn (7 shut out innings and pitched really well!)
High honorable mention: Jose Morales (he went 3-4, with 2 walks!)
Other honorable metion: Jason Kubel (he went 3-4 as well with 2 RBI's)
Way to go boys! Way to blow the White Sucks out of the water today and snap your 6-game losing streak! I was really tired of the losing, so I am very happy today came with a win. Let's keep the winning up and the minimal number of runs we allow the other team to have to just that...minimal. Non-existent would be the best!
Keep the winning in the Navy jerseys up! I love winning in them...it proves my theory of you boys playing better when wearing them. Stupid Liriano has to go and ruin my theory EVERY time he pitches. I don't want him to pick that jersey...everyone else can...just not HIM! I think it's my dislike for him that makes him not do good when he chooses the Navy...even though I LOVE the navy jerseys, my love for them can't out weigh my dislike for Liriano. He just doesn't thrill me at all.
Tomorrow night: Kevin Slowey against the Brewers and me in attendance. Boys, keep those runs a coming!!
