GameChat – Yankees @ Twins, 7:10pm

Getting the roster news out of the way, the Twins have activated Matt Capps off the DL. If I’m being honest, I’m not terribly excited about that but I really just need to get over it.

That being said, he’s probably the only pitcher on the roster that the Yankees have even heard of…

I ALWAYS want to beat the Yankees. ALWAYS. But I do have to admit that the battle with the Orioles has been about the only baseball story I have found interesting this September. Could make for an even more interesting October.

As my husband said: “The #mnTwins really need to remove the chapter about the Yankees being unbeatable from the New Player Orientation Packet. #planahead.

The little bit of offense they got going in the bottom of the 9th was just not enough to battle through the lead that the Yankees had built up – too little, too late.

But Congrats to Pedro Florimon on his first MLB Homerun! I wonder if they’ve found the ball yet…
