Money talks!!

  Great game between the Twins and The Yankees tonight. Just when Phil Hughes choked it up by giving up 2 runs after having 2 outs and an 0-2 count in the 8th, A-Rod of all people comes up with a 2 run bomb to tie it up in the bottom of the ninth. Then after messing up a golden chance to win in the 10th, Robertson gets out of a bases loaded no out jam in the top of the 11th and Texeria wins it in the 11th with a leadoff homer. Combined with Burnett's 6 innings of 1 run ball, it just goes to show what $500,000,000 or $600,000,000 gets you these days. I almost feel sorry for the Twins. They do a great job with all the players the big money teams don't want, but I'll feel less sorry for them after this series is over.

  This is best kind of baseball. Your heart is in your throat for 4 hours and the tension is finally resolved with one swing of a bat.
