Yes. It has FINALLY arrived
MINNESOTA TWINS 2008 SEASON
Today they play the Angles...and Torii Hunter.
Hunter had an 'emotional return'....and he should because we are way better than where he is....
I can't wait for the game today. I love seeing Gomez do all his weirdo stuff...he's amazing...thanks for leaving Santana!
It is snowing...so it is so great that we have a dome right now...although it would be so cute seeing the boys in Twins stocking caps running and slipping in the snow....aahhh
Gardee Quote of Day: "I really love [Hunter], I hope he goes 0 for 16"
Go Twins, Win.

Spring Training is officialy over and the Twins ended on a High note by beating the Pirates 5-4 Today.
Twins finished with the Record of 15-15, and 9th in the American League and 10th in the Grapefruit League.
Liriano WILL NOT be starting for the Twins for a while, and Scott Baker is pitching a Minor League game tomorrow. I thought Liriano did a good job...but i guess they didn't think so...but at least Slowey is still in the Rotation.
Morneau got 1 Homer this whole Spring Training. Last year hit a homerun in his first Game of the season...hopefully it will happen again.
Up Next the Twins face the Angels with Hernandez facing off against Weaver at the dome. And....Torii is gunna be there grrrr....
Good luck Boys

Well aren't YOU doing well lately! You should get the "I am a BIG BOY sticker and stick it on your strong Bicept.
Morneau:....*sigh* MORNEAU! WAKE UP AND SMELL THE CANADIAN BACON! YOU ARE BETTER THAN THIS! so please do better! love Sarahh. ^-^
Lets see about the "Runners left in scoring position, 2 out. Club" (for todays game):...>< Morneau...(1)....Everett...(3) *loud hacking noises* Ugh...sorry...i had to keep from coughing up my crackers here....*clears throat*...Punto...(2)...eh...what do you expect...anywayz...you can't stay mad at him...he has such a cute lil' face....
Hernandez: Inning uno: 1 run...ok..not bad..... Inning nombre 2: 1 run....ok....if he keeps this up they will be tied soon....Inning numba 3: 4 runs: JEEZ LA CHEEZ! THERE GOES OUR LEAD....but then RINCON comes in and saves some butt (for once).
Up Next: Liriano (first start since 2006) vs. Red Sox....&& Perkins against the Jays...
Lets see how many days it takes for Morneau to hit 1st Spring Training Homerun...
Morneau: Homerless for 1 day. (as of 3/6)

The Twins actually did good (at least the newer, less experienced guys did). They should teach some people how to play *COUGH*morneau*COUGH*.
High Note: Young hit a homerun...I think he is an awesome replacement for Torii....only he cant really play center...but eh.....Jones hit a homer off of Joba Joba (who reminds me of FOB Patrick Stump).
My Question is: How come all the minor/unexperienced players are hitting all the homers and doing so well...while The expirienced players are sucking??
This confuse Sarah. She needs sleep... ><
P.S. Morneau....is in a slump again...again...*SIGH*

This is my blog. (Hoorah)....this blog is dedicated to the Twins. So, I am going to start Twins News right away.
As of today. Twins are 2.5-3. I say 2.5 Because technically, Twins should have won today because Bof Bonser (Bof because he is no longer a big, round, Boof... but a slimmer Bof) clearly did good today. Blackburn also did well and even the umps complimented him.
Way to go Blackburn. You did so much in you 1 inning.
Bartlett was chipper today as he said he got "pumped up" to play the Twins today.
Next up: Yankees.
Slowey pitching against Yankees.
1 Thing to Twins: KICK YANKEE ASS!
thank you ^-^
