Happy Fathers Day 2011!

Wow! I haven't blogged on here in over a year and two months! Wow, what a shame! There has been so much that has happened in the past year with the Twins, so I will do a quick recap with thoughts:
  • Twins win AL Central- We all knew it would happen. We were awesome. Too bad we couldn't win in the post season...cough
  • Joe Nathan surgery- This was a bummer. And now he will never be the same [See 2011 Twins season for more]
  • Requiring Nishioka- This was really cool! Too bad he only played a couple days before going on the DL this year...
  • Twins having the worst start of the season ever- This was so depressing. I didn't even want to know what the score was!
  • Everyone going on the DL. Ugh, makes me angry that we have a huge team of call-ups (However, they are pulling their acts together lately!)
  • Harmon Killebew- This ripped the Twins apart. Really cool that there is a picture of him under home plate and a big '3' on the water tower!

Now to today. The Twins have won 14 of their last 16 games and have won seven straight. Who would have thought that this team would make such a turn around after how they played the first two months! We are actually back in the hunt in the A.L. Central. Yay!

Congrats to all the triple A guys who kicked butt in todays game. For real, if the Twins are winning games with our call-ups, then imagine what we can do with our veterans off the D.L.!

Oh and P.S. Casilla? You made everyone pee their pants today. Thanks for that bud.

Baseball and Birthdays

Today is my 16th birthday and what a great present MLB brings me every year around this time: Opening Day and the Regular Season.

We have all waited months for baseball to start back up again and I am super excited. We've got new players, a renewed attitude to win the division without an extra game, and, SI rated the Twins to be #1 in the Central Divison (Yeaaaahhhh!)

I was looking at all the new players in each of the teams and I didn't even realize how many NY Yankees were traded/not signed this offseason. Heideki Matsui, Johnny Damon, Melky Cabrera, etc. I couldn't believe it! And, we won't have to deal with pestery Polonco anymore in Detroit :).

~Spring Training stuff and Pre-Season thoughts~

1. I am pissed that Tolbert won't be up in the Majors to start the year.

2. Slowey is going to ROCK

3. Peterson, Revere, and Portes are going to be awesome in the future.

4. Nathan...well, that sucks. Stupid Elbows...

5. Twins beating the Yanks in Spring Training CAN and WILL carry over to the regular season

6. Yay Orlando Hudson and J.J. Hardy!...and Thome I guess :)
7. Punto/Harris at 3rd: So hard! If Punto could just get some spark in his bat he would have that spot so fast! Kudos to Harris however, he has been swinging the bat really well this Spring

8. Mijares still scares me a little.

9. Rauch...he's tall!
10. Outside Spring ball to Outside Summer ball for the first time in a LONG time! Hoorah!

Lets start of the season well...expecially in the new stadium. I sure hope the Gophers didn't curse it!

This is for Harris :)

Hello Spring Training!

It is FINALLY here! The first step towards baseball season (& the new stadium!!).

Seeing the pitchers and catchers warm up in a video on the news today makes me so excited but also really sad. I absolutly LOVED going to spring training last year and I want to be down there so bad it kills me! Seeing all the fans at the fence reminds me: "Hey! That was ME a year ago!". I am begging to go again next year. It was the best time of my life.

And again, it never fails that we seem to always have somebody with a Visa problem (coughMijarescough). I am glad that people like Mauer and Slowey don't have to worry about things like that :0).

More blogs to come during this pre-season! :)

Almost there!

I am back from my blogging hibernation. Baseball is approaching, so I better "dust off the shelves" and get some typing in!

I sure hope that February flies by. I cannot wait until Baseball season, and I am sure the whole blogging community could agree on that!

This weekend=Twins Fest. Me=Home. I DID get invited to go with a friend, but unfortunatly this weekend is jam packed with busy-ness. Sigh. Last years was great. I got to meet K-Slow for the first time and got my picture taken with him. It was honestly the best day of the year right there and I would kill to go again! (Next year...definite possibility!)

Thoughts on Twins Trades, Twins things, Twins players...etc. :
1. We have Jim Thome. Well, this IS good, if he can stay healthy and do as much damage to the other team like he as always done to us (Kinda reminds me of Joe Crede..).
2. No Mauer contract talk. This really bums me out, but I know that they will have it all under control. He is Joe Mauer after all!
3. Goodbye, Redmond. Ok, half of me is ok with this, and half of me is not. He WAS like a veteran leader on our team and always hustled and had a good personality. But then again, he is aging & he hardly plays with a star like Mauer here, so he probably made the best decision.

Will blog again around Spring Training. It's only a month away! :0)

Morales, the little slugger.

Going, Going, Gone.

And today marks the worst day of Alexi Casilla's life. Gomez has been traded away to our border rivals, the Milwaukee Brewers. On one hand, I am sad. On the other hand, he didn't really get to play much during the season.

Some of my memories of Gomez in a Twins uniform...
-Hitting for the cycle (1st time since Puckett I might add)
-Stealing all those bases on the first day he was in Twins uniform (Opening Day 2008)
-All the nicknames...Go Go, Gosilla, etc.
-His craziness in the duggout
-Well duh, his speed and quickness
-Scored the winning run to take us to the Postseason this year
-His accent! :)

We'll miss ya Gomez!!

...And Hello J.J. Hardy!
