What makes you hate the Twins? Get it all out right now. Remember it tomorrow.

Me?

1. Jamie Burke - 'nuff said.
2. Their announcers.
3. Gomez sliding into home for no reason and throwing up dust to celebrate like he's ****ing Triple H or something.

What, my Sox loving brethren, makes you HATE the Minnesota Twins?

I just thought of another one.

Gardenhire, in 2005 when the Indians were breathing down the White Sox's necks, decides to shuffle his rotation to ensure Santana goes up against the White Sox, in hopes of ruining our boys' postseason chances. Only the Twins, my friends.

Danks has a huge problem when it comes to handling Mauer and Morneau. He needs to go out there and pitch like he's mad tomorrow. He wanted to pitch against Minnesota a week ago right? He's gonna get that chance tommorow.

delben91
09-29-2008, 09:03 PM
I don't know if the Sox have enough to get to the postseason. Danks is going to have to give the Sox what Floyd did today. The Sox are going to have to get to Blackburn, which is smore likely at the Cell, although the weather should make it a pitchers' night. The Twins will be more motivated than the Tigers (perhaps a bit tighter, though), and they won't be starting a rookie catcher.

That's why they play the games.

Man, I wish they could have won 1 more against the Indians, tommorrows game wouldn't be neccessary. Gonna have to keep Danks on a short leash, keep Richard ready for long relief. The Sox will be tough to beat, but the Twins will be ready to play. We will win at home, where we play White Sox style baseball, not Twinkiedome crap.

Speaking of 'Circle me Bert', someone needs to write that on their ass, maybe at a Twins game in the future. I'm sure they'll circle you, won't look any different then any face in Minnesota

The Twins will be scared come first pitch. All their quotes since yesterday have been 'hopefully we don't have to go...we're all Tigers fans tomorrow...' etc, that's a loser mentality, it was telling to me, instead of 'I don't care, if it comes to that we'll beat their ass too'. Bring em on

Is the postgame thread? Anyway, two factors for tomorrow. Just pulled up batter vs. pitcher numbers. Overall, we are pretty good vs. Blackburn. Bad news and I mean real bad, the Twins numbers vs. Danks are gaudy, particularly, Mauer, Morneau, and Kubbel. We are talking .550+ OBPs!

Better news! I am going to the game. Went to 7 games this year. The only one they lost was the suspended game that ended in Baltimore and I wasn't in Baltimore. They also won the game that I had tickets for and couldn't attend. In fact, that was the freaking game where they hit 4 consecutive HRs. Still pissed I missed that.

Better news yet. I went to the home opener by myself. That part is sad I know, but we beat the Twins in that game. They also beat the Twins when I attended on May 8th when Danks beat the Twins 6-2. Now, I am going to the game again vs. the Twins? Forget about it. I am going to the first home game and the last "regular season" home game, both vs. the Twins, and both by myself.

I think the evidence is clear. Sox Win!

Nick Blackburn is 0-2 with a 7.20 ERA in 3 games at the cell this season. On one hand, he can't possibly be that bad again, but, on the other, what are the chances he completely reverses course?

I just hope we capitalize on the easy opportunities. We can't afford to get only one run in situations like the one we had in the first today.

One thing that is fairly amazing about all this is how the Twins traded Santana.

This winter they had four options:

1) Trade Santana for Hughes, Melky Cabrera and possibly Ian Kennedy
2) Trade Santana for Lester or Ellsbury with Lowrie and Moss or Masterson
3) Trade Santana for Carlos Gomez
4) Keep Santana

The season would have looked a whole lot different for the Twinkies if they had done 2 or 4. I despise that stupid baggy, I'm hoping for a good heart attack back and forth game and no Twins in the play offs

My extreme distaste for the Twins goes way back to my first full season of watching baseball: 1991. Back then, I was a Sox fan and an Atlanta Braves fan. Where I grew up, less than 2 hours from Atlanta, you were pretty much a Braves fan by default. I just remember watching the World Series and the epic seven game set against the Braves. I got sick of hearing about their Hefty-Bag Dome and their stupid Homer Hankies. And, wouldn’t you know it, my first World Series ended in a Twinkies win.

Please, please, Sox, knock these guys out again so we don't have to watch them crumble in the playoffs for the fifth time in seven years!
