It was hard watching the Twins two of the three games in Philly. I wasn't too happy that our starting pitching couldn't go into the 3rd inning in either game. I was ripped off! I wanted to watch the pitchers awkwardly swing at the ball over and over, and only got to see it once each game. IT SUCKED.
I watch most of Saturday's game at Park Tavern in St. Louis Park with a bunch of other Twins bloggers! It was the Twins Centric viewing party and it was fun! Seth was mean and teased me with Kevin Slowey's email address, ultimately deciding that he wasn't going to give it to me. (I swear I'd behave if I had it. I'd probably look at it more than actually use it. I'd be too scared to do anything about it! HINT HINT, Seth.) It was hard listening to pretty much what turned out to be the second half of the game on the radio while driving to my home town of Austin for Father's Day. I think people would have thought I was nuts if they would've been in the car with me, or even seen me from their car. I was screaming at the top of my lungs when Joe Mauer hit his home run to tie the game.
Two games out of 3 in Philly, the reigning NL Division champs of 2009, I'll take it! Sunday, Carl was outstanding going the distance and pitching a complete game! He even got a hit to try and help his cause. It was too bad that Carl put no effort into his running the base line. He made Jim Thome and Jason Kubel look like fast runners with how slow he trotted to the bases.
