Brief Thoughts About Baseball (07/20/2009 - 07/27/2009)

1....mumble...grumble...Twins historic collapse...grumble...against A's...bumble grumble....Cuddyer was safe...

2....mumble...grumble...Supid hated White Sox...grumble grumble...Mark Buehrle perfect game...bumble grumble....historic...grumble...

3....mumble...grumble...Joe Nathan blowing a save...grumble grumble...fourth Twins loss in five games...bumble grumble....

4. Obviously I'm bitter about the Twins...and I hate the White Sox. I'll just say this, I was thinking that the Twins can't win the division without making a trade. But this week has proven that the Twins have too many holes to fill via trading anyway. So the Twins are down to just hoping the division is so weak that they can win by default.

5. Anyway, on Monday a 100 year old woman attended a Texas Rangers game. During an interview she said that Michael Young was her favorite Ranger. Apparently inspired by this, Michael Young does this.

6. What's worse, the fact that I was surprised to hear that an old lady's favorite player was African American (basically saying that I feel that all old ladies are racist) or the fact that I simply assumed Michael Young WAS African American....when in fact he's Caucasian.

7. This wasn't any more exciting than Chase Utley's.

8. Manny Ramirez was out of the Dodger's line up when he pinch hit with the bases loaded. Mr. I-Take-Estrogen-Pills did this. An interviewer of Manny said that that might have been the greatest moment in Dodger Stadium history. Someone needs a lesson about Kirk Gibson.

1. Damn, that whole botched call still pisses me off.

And there was another one last night, at the Giants game or something. Replay clearly showed the ump got it wrong. Where's the accountability? It just angrys up my blood, even when it doesn't cost the Twins a win (but especially when it does).

2. What pisses me off the most is that a perfect IS an accomplishment, and I'd like to enjoy it on it's own merits more, but I hate Buehrle and the White Sox so much I have hard time doing that. Which makes me hate them even more.

3. Man, there sure was a lot to grumble about this week...stupid Twins.

4. Ah, the two sweetest words in the English language (and, sadly, the key to the Twins' success): default

6. I...don't even know what to say. Except "that's funny."

8. Forget Gibson, to suggest that a game winning (but not walk off) pinch hit grand slam in a late July game for a team 20-some games over .500 in first place by the widest margin over their closest opponent in baseball is the greatest moment in the 2009 season is suspect, let alone to say it's the greatest moment in stadium history ever.
