The Best Part of Monday Night’s Twins Game

I had the opportunity of attending last night’s make-up game between the Minnesota Twins and the Chicago White Sox.  All I can say is that the Target Field is a great place to see opposing teams throttle the Twins.

The only good part of the game was that it ended.  I was 6 outs away from seeing Sox, no-hit the lousy Twins.  It sure looks like the team is giving little effort out there.  It looks like they’re going through the motions at this point.

If this is the case, why not refund everyone’s money and let fans watch the game for free.  Watching the Twins is like watching town ball but at least in town ball it’s cheap and the players give full effort.

For the Twins, you pay an arm and a leg, mortgage the house to by concessions and you’re rewarded with an atrocious product on the field.  This comes after the citizens of Minnesota foot a large part of the bill for this stadium (One that I supported).  Team management better think long and hard on what approach it wants to take this offseason.

My hope is that they will spend, spend and spend some more money.  Give something back to the fans.  It’s one thing if the team’s naturally terrible.  It’s quite another to leave an impression with  your patrons that you don’t care about the season anymore and want to throw in the towel.

Seriously folks, the Twins were very close to not having a hit.  They went 7 full innings without one and were only able to p0ut one on the board.  The Sox had something like 14 and put 4 runs on the board.

The Twins are being obliterated in every game.  They’re not competitive and with these ticket prices, it’s a recipe for disaster.  I’m sure Twinkies management is happy with their decision to raise ticket prices for their second season at Target field, especially after having on of the worst seasons in more than 10 years.

So the best part of last night’s game is when it was over!
