Maurer and Morneau were both o for whatever. One cannot win with clutch hitting like that. The better team did win.

I pesonally don't think Gardy was serious about this game. Putting Cuddyer instead of Kubel? Cuddyer missed too much time IMO to be effective.

Disappointed with M&M also.

Cuddyer had 50% of the hits. The age of this team hurt us in this high pressure game, look at I believe was the 7th inning, Danks pitch count is climbing and all three batters go up flailing away at every pitch, 6 pitch inning, you already know that you aren't having success against him! Take some pitches and get him out of there??? Way too tight tonight.

Yeah! Gardy wasn't real serious about the game he should have started Kubel a LEFT handed batter with a career average of .071 against a LEFT handed pitching Danks!

I give up...... grin

you have to go with what got you there people. That is what baseball is all about.

They didnt hit, so they lost. You have to play the people that got you to that point.

oh and if morneau gets the mvp i will be very disgusted, 3 for 30 to finish the season is not mvp material.

No but some of you think you know more about baseball then one of the best Managers in the game and I disagree with that and have no problem with Gardy using Cuddy over Kubel tonight. Basic math and percentages is all it is and it worked with Cuddy getting one of 2 hits and almost scoring the go ahead run.

Not saying playing cuddy was wrong, but how can you say it worked? We didn't score and our season is done. Again, who knows if playing kubel would have worked or not but don't go saying yesterday's lineup worked.

Playing Cuddy over Kubel was the right thing to do any manager in the majors would of done that. One thing I questioned last night was why did Gardy have Mauer bunt??? Common pull your head out of your you know what he's the batting champ and you have him bunt, very nice move. Plus it doesn't help when Morneau has been the biggest bum on this team since the Tampa Bay series. And someone said it in a post he does not deserve the MVP playing like that, I say give it to Pedroia.

Congrats to the Sox, really cool that both Chicago teams are in the post season together for the 1st time in 102 years.

Do I think they will make it far I doubt it. Go CUBS!!!!!

Well Kebel did get a chance and struck out...Mauer always has the green light to bunt, the call didn't come from Gardy, he has done that on occasion all season, if he doesn't feel comfortable up there that is a good way to try to get on...thats Twins ball, the style that got them there. And Mornuea, holy cow was he awful the last week or so, he will not win the MVP because of this and the fact we were eliminated.

I don't think anyone should discount JM's MVP chances on 30 at bats---it maybe that it was his last 30 at bats that blew but look at the whole season. He was a HUGE part of the reason the twins were in a position to even make the playoffs. The reason the twins didn't make the playoffs is because of their horseshart bullpen work over the last month and a half--end of story.

They had a great season that fell short by 1 run! Lets give them some credit! Some of you already want to trade half the team and kick the [PoorWordUsage] out the other half.

Congrats Twins on the season.

Let me ask you this, why would you put someone in the starting line up on the last game of the year when he has not played for months, when you have a guy that has been taring the cover off the ball and sit him on the bench.

That makes no since. Your only putting down the guy that has been hitting home runs for you for the last 2 months.

PB...some will always complain. One hanging dinger to a veteran hitter is what meant the game. Good season and hopefully the young guys learned something.

What most don't know is Morneaus legs where hurting the last couple of weeks and should have had some time off, but we don't have a back up 1st baseman.

Let me ask you this why do you continue to cut Gardy's call on who played??? Cuddy had 50% of the hits last night. Kubel stuck out when he was put in. Who cares??? The Twins had a great season and just fell short of all who said they would do nothing this whole season. Hats off to the whole twins organization. All they had to do was beat the Royals and couldn't do it. The Twins have a lot of young guys and by next season will probably pick up some extra needed help. Nick Punto brought his average up and played awesome in the field. The young pitching staff did an excellant job all year. Time to look forward to next year and not dwell on wheather Gardy played the right guy or not. Ya Twinkies to an awesome season.
