There are many things that make one say “That’s Twins Baseball” and the perfect example is how we won “Game 163″. I was watching a program on MLB Network last night and they showed the walk-off hit by Casilla to send the Twins into the playoffs. After a rush of adrenaline at 3am (which is good for sleep), I proceeded to laugh my ass off upon viewing the Twins box score for that game….
“Disgusting. How pathetically fragile it is. Nothing this weak is meant to survive.”
–Agent Smith in the Matrix, and talking about the Twins lineup
–And Any Superstars Agent
That lineup makes me laugh every time, how the hell did we win? Oh wait, I know, we won by playing “Twins Baseball”. GoGo gets on base, Cuddy moved him over with an accidental sacrifice (got lucky only play was to 1st), and then our DH spot held by Alexi Casilla knocks in the game winning run. You can’t make it up but hey, that’s Twins baseball.
P.S. Looking back at the playoffs, liken the Twins vs Yankees to the Womans Hockey China vs. USA. We knew we had no chance, just glad we qualified.
