We have no one to blame but everybody else

Not our fault. Game one...obviously we can't be expected to win that one. Um, Helllllllo?!?! We got into New York -- after a 12 inning game, mind you -- at like 3AM!!! Yeah, like we were ready to play a game that night (sarcasm). If you cut us, do we not bleed? If we play a long game and then don't sleep much, are we not tired? Our only flaw in game one is that our team is human. If that is wrong...Guilty. As. Charged.

Game two? um, two words for you: Phil Cuzzi. He's totally the reason we didn't win. I'm so mad at him, you guys.

@$#!!! CUZZI CAN @$*^%^$ HUNDRED BLEEDING %&*@# IN GABORONE #($*@ &@#* &*^@ YOUR MOM %$@# &#@# IRONING BOARD @#$^$%#^@ $@#@!@# BACK IN THE SHOE BOX #&@!^&@ TARTAR SAUCE#*@&#@ TIL THE HANDLE FALLS OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now, I feel better. Actually, I kind of feel bad for the guy. As a former nine-and-under soccer referee, I can understand the pressure that goes with officiating a big game. But, I'm just bewildered how he called Mauer's hit foul.

Our game three loss, obviously, was because we were still trying to recover from the game two loss (because of Phil Cuzzi). And the Yankees have a big payroll and just buy players. In conclusion, the Twins actually won that series with the Yankees. Good job.

Stay tuned tomorrow when I break down all the 2010 free agents and trade targets!!!! Just kidding. I'm not doing that. I'm done talking about baseball for a while.

There's been a lot of non baseball stuff on my mind lately. For example, what is going on here?

That's a picture of Joe Girardi giving Cuzzi a back rub after game 2.

Or Cuddyer trying to rip Punto's head off.

I agree. Twins win. But when I broke into the dome last night for game 4, all they did was arrest me!

Luckily there was a shoeless guy in a Blyleven jersey to keep me company.

I have a question that I'm sure the AH! Community can answer. Well its a few.

How much money are we spending on one of the best leadoff/outfielders in the league? How long can we pay him that weak salary? When that time is up, will we have enough money to keep him around after the Mauer signing?
I would think that there are quite a few team out there drooling over the thought of him in their outfield and batter's box... of course I'm speaking of Mr. Span. Did we really let him sit in the minors while the likes of Jason Tyner, Lew Ford, Jason Kubel (pre-this year), and Carlos Gomez manned the field?

if my calculation are correct, the Twins have Denard under contract for the next 4 seasons, ending in 2014. He'll probably sign a 4year extension at 8mil per in 2012, buying out his first two years of free agency.

When he hits free agency in 2016, he'll be like 32. Speed and defense diminished, he'll leave as Torii left.

I guess I'm satisfied with 2016, couple rings, and a few Golden Gloves.

They had a big article in the Star Trib's sports section on wed about estimated wages the Twins were getting. i was pretty surprised Span was getting the est. same amount as Alexi. hmmmmm.
