  • Didn't watch the today's games. Was just checking to see how they went and saw that Pat pitched and now I'm a wreck after watching clips. #
  • Usually watching Neshek pitch is a joyful endeavor, but . . . sigh. Glad he pitched well. Amazing he could at all. #
  • NLCS & World Series on FOX, rest of stuff on cable/sat? Gah. Wish there was a cheap option to just get basic cable + sports (MLB, FSN) #
  • Also yesterday I missed seeing Lew Ford pinch run for Jim Thome. Like, whoa. #

  • Go Orioles! (So these games aren't on broadcast TV and are blacked out on mlb.tv? Bleah! Boo!) #
  • Wondering if my Dad has tuned in the game and if my Mom is bemoaning the Twins getting rid of J.J. Hardy. (Seems likely.) #
  • This Orioles-Rangers game is on TV somewhere, right? TBS? Written in the stars? #
  • I'm told the game is on TNT. #
  • Now watching the game in MLB At Bat app on iPad, not the TV coverage, but camera views. Huh. #
  • J.J. Hardy, Jim Thome, and Lew Ford vs. Ron Washington & Joe Nathan. #FormerMNTwins (What? There's more to it than that?) #

  • Good for @KenBarlowWx for going public and on @AmyGustafson for writing an excellent article about him opening up about bipolar diagnosis. #
  • Husband was filling me in on MLB news, but it all seemed unimportant after I learned of the death of Gehrig John Neshek. Heartbreak. #
  • Oh please oh please oh please RT @KirbysLeftEye: So when does the Target Field DJ have his meeting with Terry Ryan? #
  • Downer of a day, but the tweets with the #TwinsShakeup tag are amusing me. You clever funny people, you. #
  • I like to think you use the Emmy to prop up all objects you photograph. RT @DeRushaJ: My white, @kwatt style iPhone5: http://t.co/bU1OrgqF #
  • It must be deeply weird to have your job performance (and firings and hirings) so public. Covered by media, argued about by fans. #
  • #TwinsShakeup RT @KirbysLeftEye: Wow the right field bleachers just got fired. Didn't see that one coming. #Twins #TargetField #
  • But are they bringing back the trees? Or at least doing something to make the batters' eye less ugly? #TargetField #eyesore #
  • I'm gonna be bummed if they let Jerry White go. #
  • Whenever I get cranky re offseason moves, I remember I was worried when we traded A.J. and unsure Mauer was ready. It worked out. #
  • I also remember the rally in the rain outside the Metrodome when we thought the Twins might leave town. Things are much better now. #
  • Gloomy day. I honestly can't say whether the Twins moves are good or not, but am grateful for the contributions these guys made to #MNTwins #
  • I guess I did kinda figure Gardy & Anderson were a package deal and I guess so do the #MNTwins #
  • Improvements to right field bleacher area at #TargetField sound like they have potential: http://t.co/wUJRBFB3 #
  • Improves traffic flow between gates 34 & 29, tho these days we're never down there (use skyway to ramp A). Wasn't on plaza once this year. #

  • Oh hai Grant Balfour! (Yes, we've been watching the Texas-Oakland game on http://t.co/FUuXBZOZ.) #
  • As a Twins fan I see this as Grant Balfour & Pat Neshek vs. Joe Nathan & Ron Washington. Is that weird? #
  • Very happy for the A's. So cool. Lots of good stories this season (A's, Orioles, Nats . . . ). #
  • I suppose technically I should count Billy Beane among former Twins but I'm still too stunned Brad Pitt played him in a movie. #
  • In the AL at this point I'm rooting for Everybody But The Yankees. #
  • Watching JJ Hardy, Thome, Lewww, & rest of Orioles on TV; listening to Twins game. #
  • Baseball geek: Orioles-Rays on TV, Twins-Jays audio (on iPad), Yankees-Red Sox Gameday in iPad At Bat app. Twitter on laptop. #
  • Normally I sometimes root for the Rays, but tonight would love to see the Orioles win. (Find it odd to be rooting for the Red Sox, but I am) #
  • A six pitch inning for Dice K? Against the Yankees? Like, whoa. #
  • Wondering why we've ended our season against the Blue Jays so often of late. (Know we faced them last home stands of last two years.) #
  • There's a debate or something? C'mon. Baseball is on! #
  • Omar Vizquel retiring means MLB is much closer to having no active players who are older than me. #FeelingMyAge #
  • Heh. RT @DrunkMiggy: I also lead the league in hugs #
  • Enjoyed this season more than last season, I think, maybe. Thanks to y'all for making it more fun. Good luck to the #MNTwins in offseason. #
  • I'll likely be posting some during postseason play & should there be any major developments with Twins (or former Twins). #

  • Last game, dining in Met Club first (#twins vs #tigers game w/ http://t.co/N7VcrHjh) #
  • Brunch in Metropolitan Club at Target Field. @ Metropolitan Club http://t.co/qM9bWkz7 #
  • I expect one, otherwise it’s Boo City! RT @KirbysLeftEye: I hope Joe hits a home run today. #
  • Er . . . what? RT @kbrobaseball: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles like baseball. http://t.co/fZcC01oN #
  • Met Club buffet: walleye cake Benedict, choc chip pancakes, ham, bacon, florentine frittata, ton of fruit & veggies, lots more. #
  • We all laughed when we discussed our lack of nostalgia for the old season ticket holders club at Metrodome. Met Club > Rally Room. #
  • So do kids these days know TMNT or is it mostly their parents who do? No idea if there’s still turtle stuff. #
  • Perfect weather yet again. We’re in the wheelchair row above 207 as we often are (we share two season ticket plans, these & in H). #
  • Honestly it sometimes seems like no one wants to win the AL Central. (Looking at White Sox score.) #
  • My Mom just uttered what may be the last “Why don’t we still have JJ Hardy?” of the year. Aw. #TargetField #FormerMNTwins #
  • Man, you don’t want to be the kid who has to wear the mini mascot bear suit on last game of season at #TargetField #
  • Blue skies yet again at Target Field. @ Target Field http://t.co/cn81yhG1 #
  • You know Delmon want to make it to third to say hi to @TPlouffe24, but I don’t think he can steal as he’s still running on tippy toes. #
  • Hoping no Twin gifts us with food today as we’re stuffed from buffet. I may need another meal in a few days. #
  • Husband proud to be one of three fans who clapped for Casilla. Me: “Oh right, I forgot about ‘Lexi again.” #
  • Final #TargetFieldFashion report of season: Mom in sundress (made of Twins fabric); Dad, Kevin, & I in jerseys: Mauer, Santana, Puckett. #
  • Bears like to give away stuffed meatballs? Who knew? No wonder @TC_00 is popular. Probably shouldn’t approach other bears for meatballs. #
  • That ball was popped up high enough Mauer really did have time to discuss hair products before making the catch. Huh. #
  • Cotton candy vendor touting his goods as “delicious and nutritious.” #TargetField #TheMoreYouKnow #
  • During the offseason Joe Mauer should work with Carew on stealing home. Gotta add some more skills to his game. Yup. (Or not.) #
  • I don’t know about you, but I always pronounce the “H” in “Jhonny” as written. #
  • Casilla is telling Hendricks what, exactly? #
  • Some random Johan Santana fan at #TargetField (or its my husband Kevin). @ Target Field http://t.co/FJtxWTOl #
  • Dad & Mom at Target Field. @ Target Field http://t.co/YpDGZA9F #
  • I wanna hear the Mauer-Cabrera convo they had as Twins IBB Cabrera. #
  • Just realized my husband’s new glasses (which cost $12 including shipping) look just like those of Cole de Vries. #
  • I asked him, he thinks he might be able to do as well as “average Twins starting pitcher”. RT @ERolfPleiss: But can he pitch? #
  • Not a home run. #
  • Was watching @toriihunter48 face @JoeNathan36 in Angels-Rangers game on iPad while things got exciting here at Target Field. #
  • Kinda rough watching that Torii versus Nathan matchup in that situation. Thrilled for Torii who is having an amazing month, sad for Joe. #
  • LOL at boos as Joe-Ma is intentionally walked even tho anyone would do it in this situation. #WalksWillHaunt #
  • Having players on your roster with postseason experience as Twins could just mean they’re good at losing to the Yankees. #
  • We find Dotel’s shoes distracting. #
  • I swear I have better picture quality on iPad for games than they had on scoreboard for Angels-Rangers highlights. #
  • #PMKI indeed. RT @mmmarkiep: whoa! @glen_perkins 8 straight strikes, 8 pitches total, 3 up 3 down shut down 9th?? #pmki #
  • I think Mauer was thrown when they didn’t play his usual walkup music, but instead played that “I won’t back down” song. #justsayin #
  • We’ll be back at #TargetField next year; have had season tix since 85, only skipped one year (87. Yeah, I know. Not my decision.) #
  • Was nice of Prince to give Joe a hug at the end of the game, was surely the least he could he could do. #

  • Oh hai A.J. Pierzynski! I still like you even if you’re with the White Sox. (He’s on FOX pre-game show.) #
  • Heh! Better than the pic of Joe & Justin from a couple years ago. RT @toriihunter48: Calling all captains!!!! http://t.co/Qb9Hc9vN #
  • Not at the Twins game today, but pleased I can watch it on broadcast TV. Will be at game tomorrow, hard to believe will be last game of year #
  • I like @JustinVerlander even when he makes players on my team look silly. #
  • When Justin faced Justin earlier I was reminded of that one ad campaign. And also remembered why we haven’t seen them face each other. #
  • I always want a player, when asked “how much fun is [whatever]?” to answer “not at all fun, what are you talking about?” #
  • The phrase "only the likes of Coco Crisp have" frightens me a bit. #
  • I like Joe Mauer. #
  • Had no idea Joe-Ma's batting average was so much better when he catches. That's kinda awesome. #
  • Haven't seen Morneau face Verlander in what seems like ages 'til today and well . . . I see why. I blame the cardboard stand ups. #
  • Just as I can't pull in AM 1500 to listen to the Twins in south Minneapolis, I can't pull in HD version of FOX 9 KMSP over air, just SD. #
  • I live in the heart of Twins Territory, it should be dead easy to see or listen to my team. #
  • Talk of eye black has me wondering if the #MNTwins provide the players with gallons of sunblock (if not, they really should). #
