Goooosssshhh darnit!!!! Here I am checking out posts and stuff, all the while the Twins make a comeback and win! Here it is, end of the 8th, Twins down 1-0 and I leave to check out the forums. And what's worse....my wife doesn't even tell me of the comeback! GRRRRRR!

Oh well, at least they won. Plus, they'll replay it tomorrow so I can set the VCR and record it.

Just a testament to the makeup of this team. The fact that Radke even makes it out there to pitch seems to me beyond the realm of possibility; better yet Radke has a strong outing. I don't even want to hear anybody try to minimize his effort because we are playing the Royals. You know Radke would have pitched left-handed if that's what it would have come to.

DOwn here in IOwa-- the games don't come in so well, especially late in the year with the loss of daylight, but tonight was a treat laying on the couch listning to CCO' and Gordo. Even after Hudson pitched lights out for 7 innings,(don't let anybody tell you the Royals are a bad team, they have a better record since the ALL Star break then the freakin CARDS)) you had a idea the TWins would still win. Even more so when Rincon got out of bases loaded, NO OUTs , jam in the top of the 9th.

I have heard GORDO call many big wins for the TWINS... --- PIERsynski's insurance shot agst the A's in 02',, Guzman's BUNT HR IN 2003, but last night's call with that high pitched voice going totally nuts with Mauers' HR, was the best so far. Hopefully he's got a few more in the postseason--- Here's a DRIVE,,, LEFT FIELD,, IT's GOT CHANCE---- (Gladden in the background going,, "GET UP- GET UP!!!)) GONE.... HR JOE MAUER!!!!! OHHH MYY!!! TOUCH' EM ALL!!!!! JOE MAUER!!!

One of most spectacular comebacks in sports history--- even if the Twins do nothing in the playoffs. They have passed the World Champs who they trailed by 10 games in June and tied the run-away train who some people thought would win close to 110 games. All this with one stud Starting pitcher and a makeshift rotation that includes guys that started the season in A ball or AA. AWESOME!!!!

I was crying "FOUL" last night. Twins get two on and KC walks the next guy to load 'em up for the number nine hitter. Looking decent. I go to the stats and the guy has a .313 average!!! That's not fair. My tigers don't have a .313 anywhere in the order and you guys got one batting ninth.

Nice win. Will Chicago play tough or roll over? Can the tigers go the season with only one loss to KC?

Good luck.

I think the Sox will play tough. They aren't going to lie down for the hated Twins.. Same with KC against Detroit. Play the spoiler role.

That was one of the best games I have ever watched, just as I was bichin about how the Twins have no killer instinct when the door was left open two consecutive nights and how it seems they are going to settle for the wild card...bam! Mauer baby. And how about Bartlett? That was pressure there, and he tagged the ball! There are at least 3 ways to make an out in that situation without scoring a run.

I agree with Stratos. Sox and Royals have had horribly disappointing seasons. If I was a Sox or Royals pitcher I think I just might be looking to end my season with about a dozen a strikeout performance. And maybe an 0-fer night for the batting Prince. smirk.gif

That was an exciting game last night. I'm down in Iowa too. Sweetie took the XM receiver out of her car and left it for me last night so I could hear the Twins. She's a good girl.

I only got a chance to watch a bit here and there last night, and got frustrated at how the Twins batters made the KC pitchers look like Cy Young. Got to watch the bottom of the 9th though. Mauer was just clutch. Still need to win out to have a chance. Hope it keeps going tonight.

I take it then you plan to win the weekly bet this week? Personally, I like your chances on this week Buzzsaw, but for the sake of the avatar I'll say "Go Bills".

Awesome...simply awesome. It was just the momentum they needed to carry them into the final series with the Sux.

I was also at the game last night. Brad pitched great. Actually looked pretty tough out there.

After Mauer hit that homerun, you knew the Twins were gonna win the game. You could literally feel it swing the Twins way.

This has been a special season and one that fans should not take for granted.

Best thing - These guys are all relative newbies to the MLB. We will be tough for years.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.
