Twins Win AL Central in 12th!
SubTitle: Holy Crap!
UPDATE Ė Here is the link to tonightís SethSpeaks.net NIGHTLY Minnesota Twins Podcast. I was joined again by Travis Aune (Travis Talks) and John Bonnes (Twins Geek), and we talked for 45 minutes about the game.
Honestly, Iíll have to write more later. This is the most proud I have ever been of being a Twins fan. I am speechless right now. Hopefully I can come up with words before 10:00 when I will host the SethSpeaks.net NIGHTLY Minnesota Twins podcast. We will take you calls, questions, comments. I donít even want to think about the Yankees yet. I donít care. Iíve always said, Iím about the 162 game seasonÖ or make that 163 games! Whatever it takes!
Twins Win 6-5 in the 12th inning on a single by Alexi Casilla that scores Carlos Gomez, who had singled to lead off the inning. If that doesnít exemplify what a crazy season this has been for the Twins, I donít know what was. This was one of the best games I can ever remember watching. There was the game against the White Sox in the dome near the end of last year, and obviously Games 6 and 7 of the 1991 World Series count too. But this game had everything. Great defense, bad defense. Clutch hitting, and Clutch pitching.
Feel free to leave your comments. I just donít have anything more right nowÖ This is amazing! Congratulations to the Minnesota Twins, the players, coaches, the manager, GM, the front office and the ownership, and also to all the fans who, not matter how small a chance there was, never stopped watching, and never stopped caring! We witnessed something tonight we will never forget!
