GameChat – Twins @ Tigers #2, 6:05pm

Ok, I get to WATCH some baseball!  I am going through a little bit of withdrawal because I’ve been a little away from the game due to my birthday, family time and the holiday. I’m glad to be back and would like to properly say thank you to the Twins for winning on my birthday.  The whole restaurant (pretty much my group of family and friends) cheered at the end of the game.  It was good. I would like to see them do it again. Just saying.

I think the Twins have run out of new ways to lose games. They seem to be repeating themselves, now.  It was nice to see Justin Morneau do his “hit the ball a long way… twice” thing tonight, though.

I’d be eternally thankful if the Twins would find a shortstop who could throw the ball accurately to one base or another. I hear Toby Gardenhire is doing a nice job in Rochester with the bat and the glove. At this point, why not? Nobody else in this organization seems to want the gig.
