What to say...

I always wondered how coaches feel when they walk into a locker room or clubhouse after a loss that ends the season. I thought, what do they say, how do they say it, or is there even anything to say? I still don't know!

What a tough loss for the Twins last night. It's easy to quickly think about all the games that we could have won to have avoided last night's situation. It's also easy to say well we weren't supposed to be there anyway, but I don't except that. The Twins simply didn't take care of business last night. Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau struggled going 0-6 with three strikeouts agains a pitcher they usually dominate. Plus, if these two guys only get six at bats in a game that simply is not enough. The whole offense did not show up to play.

I said before the game that I thought Nick Blackburn would be the key to the game. He did more than I could have expected and I actually thought this game would be a 7-5 type ballgame. Unfortunately, the White Sox beat us and our own game. Which is evident by the fact that this was the Twins' 5th 1-0 loss this year (tied for the most in MLB) and the White Sox 1st 1-0 win. That's tough to swallow.

If there is any silver lining to this, Joe Mauer did when his second batting title in three years. He now has two titles by the age of 25 and is still the only AL catcher to win the title.

That's it for now, much more to come later but we all need time to let this digest. Thanks to everyone who stopped by during the Live Blogcast, it was truly a fun time. Please continue to come back to Twins MVB with many exciting changes expected in the future. For the next three weeks, I'm the biggest Tampa Bay Rays fan out there!

I haven't even been able to read anything about it today. Just too painful. Eventually I think I'll be able to celebrate how cool of a season it was but damn...if you have told me Blackburn would get through six innings only giving up one run, I'd say we would destroy them. Next year, I guess...next year.
