Twins Vs Yankees Post Season Game 1

Here comes game 2 of the night!

Twins @ Yankees.

I’m sure I’ll be looking at some heat from Jane during this entry.  So I’ll be smart and not post it till I’m ready for the heat.

I mean really do you want this chick mad at you?

I mean this is a lady who lives in CA, that has at least two teams in the run, but she’s still a Yankee fan.  I’m not saying she’s got mob connections, but this is a lady who has an online spokes person talk for her.  I call it a good source of deniability.

Of course I’m kidding, I actually don’t know her well enough to even make these jokes….

*knock at my door*

Who is it?…I don’t know anyone named Louie.

Okay, okay enough free press for Jane. Now to the game.

We’re moving into the 2nd inning and CC is doing what he does best, shutting down hitters.  I’ll admit I haven’t paid to much attention to CC this year.  I watched him when he was on the other side with the Brewers, but not him with the Yankees.  What do you think of him?  He just completed his 4th strike out as I was writing this.

What I’m worried about while watching the Yankees defense is that their outfielders (in particular center field) doesn’t seem all that quick.  CC will keep them busy, but the Twins can and will hit, so if they can’t keep the defense up they will be in trouble.  Of course as I write this the Yanks just cut down the last player and we’re moving to the bottom of the 2nd.

I’m going to twitter a bit and let you guys catch up.  Give me some comments to work with! 

 

 

Ok so I took time to eat and spend time with my wonderful wife to be…sue me..

It’s the top of the 8th.

I’ve managed to cook dinner and not burn myself while watching and listening to the game.  Julia  reminded me that mexican food is good.  Okay she really didn’t have to remind me, but she had tacos last night that she didn’t share with me for some bad reason like we live in different parts of the country…  In that time the Twins managed to score, but the Yanks well…they scored more 2 to 7.  Two homers by Matsui and and Jeter show where some of the points came from.

Why are the Yanks going through pitchers like this is some audition?  They’re working on a third pitcher to finally get to Joba.  Joba then gets the last batter out to end this half, moving on to the Twins defensively. 

Which went quick, here comes the 9th

Twins are tired.  They didn’t get in till 4:30am, that has to be it.  I expect the Yankees to win, but not like this.  That’s just the thought that keeps going through my head while watching this.

And goodbye Joba.  What was that like 3 pitches?

I have noticed that Yankees are giving away game balls like crazy, but I guess if you’re paying as much as you are for those seats I would imagine they all deserve a ball.

Twins are not going down easy putting guys on 1st and 3rd.  Rivera is letting the guys have a little light before the game is done.

Funny note, the camera man tripped while taping the congrats hi fives.

So in Summary I don’t know.  My guts tell me to say watch out Yanks because the Twins will be coming back to get you tons harder than tonight.

But

I don’t know if it will be enough, the Yankees are a force to be recognized.

MVP by Cob: Jeter

 

 

 

 

 

October 4th…The Day Baseball Was Good

So I’ll add pictures as soon as my lovely counterpart and photographer gives them to me, but I wanted to go ahead and start writing about today’s game.

Today was awesome!

It was like how baseball is supposed to be.  I sat in great seats 175ft from home plate, I had a perfect view of the field, the scoreboards, the other game updates, you name it.  I had my I phone headset in one ear listening to the radio broadcast of the game and then jumped over to the Twins and Tigers battles to hear a little of it.  I enjoyed some sun shine.  I had some Montgomery Inn pulled pork and chips with a Jack and Coke to drink.  The seats around me were empty for at least a little while which let me eat in peace and comfort. (Later it filled in but I didn’t mind so much this time…) 

I watched Homer Bailey actually pitch like he’s been talked about instead of being a dark horse.
I watched everyone hit well, and not be home run hitters.  There was actual small ball being played and it was fun to watch.

Even though he was on the other team I got to watch Andrew McCutchen (sp?) steal bases and do all the things I’ve watched him do for years in AAA ball Indianapolis.

I was engaged with all my senses and was at that point where I really could argue with anyone who normally tells me “Baseball is boring”  Today was baseball in all it’s splendor, every penny was worth what it was spent for.
