Seriously! Last time we won twice in New York during a season? 2001. When did our futility against the Yankees start? 2002. Cuddyer's rookie year. Next time we win twice in New York? 2012, the first year Cuddyer is gone.
This has got to be a true sign the world comes to an end December 21, 2012...
Unfortunately for the Mayans they didn't account for extra days in leap years...so that day has come and gone.
So, that's not the reason...
Another nice team victory! Marquis looked shaky for a while there. Does he only have 2 pitches? Or I should say.. 1 pitch with two different speeds (A tailing fastball and tailing change up..81mph and 89mph)?? Does he have a slider or curve ball or anything? I think he'd be more effective if he wasn't so predictable and had a couple of more pitches.
Morneau looks fantastic and Casilla sure came to play tonight!! I've actually been very impressed with Casilla in the field this year and batting so good vs. New York just shows me that maybe he deserves stick around for a while.
In terms of Luke Hughes being the odd man out... he was thanking the Twins for the opportunity to play in the Majors on Twitter and also thanking people from the down under for the support as well. It seems as if he doesn't think he'll ever get another shot again.
