Note the position of the umpire as he calls the clearly fair ball foul.
Great game by Blackburn. Too bad that it all has to wind down in the shittiest way possible.
On a sidenote, I overheard Ron Darling saying after the team's MVP Justin Morneau went down with an injury, it was guys like Michael Cuddyer, Jason Kubel... and Delmon Young that pulled the Twins into contention.
Joe Mauer, meanwhile, selfishly hit .354/.471/.487 - to be clear, that means he was getting on base almost as often as he was getting out over the critical playoff drive. What Cuddy did was great, but he and Kubel aren't getting RBIs if Mauer isn't setting the table for them. To act as if the soon-to-be AL MVP had less to do with the Twins eventual division title than DELMON YOUNG, is cockflickery, my friends.
Also, in what universe do people still think the MVP of the 2009 Twins is Justin Morneau??
What a complete disappointment... let's pick up at least one from this very beatable team, shall we, gentlemen??
