Tonight’s 163rd and final game of the regular season of 2009 was one of the greatest games I’ve ever seen, easily the best regular season game I’ve seen and the only game i can think of that compares was game 6 of 1975. This game was good for baseball.

Both starters were strong, both teams made mistakes that could have cost the game but the Twins just outlasted the Tigers. I think a different pitcher should have started the 12th for Detroit other than Rodney.

BTW my nephew noticed on an intentional walk to Mauer that the ball seemed to be pitched too close to him. It was close enough for him to punch for a hit. On the 4th ball that followed if you look at his feet he was ready to swing to punch the ball into left if the pitcher did it again.

If you want a recap just go to baseball musings and read from the bottom up. The twins pen might be shot but boy these guys have heart. Will that be enough today vs the Yankees?

BTW: I like Baseball Crank but if you are going to call your blog that you ought to have blogged about this game or have something to say about it.

That’s why they play em all

You would think a 3 game lead with 4 to play would be a cakewalk, particularly with a manager like Jim Leyland.

You would think wrong.

The Tigers managed to blow a 3 game lead and the Twins managed to win despite facing the person who SHOULD win the AL Cy Young to make it come down to the final game of a 162 game season.

Details of the games at the ever popular Baseball Musings.

If Both teams win or both lose tomorrow a one game playoff takes place in Minnesota.

That’s what makes baseball great.

I must confess I have absolutely no idea how it is going to end but it’s very exciting.
