Sunday Headlines: Better Luck Next Year

The Twins were swept out of the playoffs again. 

The Yankees turned the Twins into a postseason puddle again, getting a brilliant performance from righthander Phil Hughes in their 6-1 Game 3 victory to complete another Division Series sweep.

On Sept. 21, the Twins became the first major league team to clinch a postseason berth. They were also the first team to get bounced from the playoffs.


Next year, I think the Twins should be disqualified from any of LOHO's rooting interest lists.

The Bears aren't good, but WOW the Panthers are terrible.

Poor old Brooks Conrad is having a nightmare of a game... 3 errors, 2 of which lead to runs including this 2 out go-ahead in the top of the 9th.

Will Carrol just pointed out that the Reds fans chanting "cheater" at Chase Utley are sitting right above Edison Volquez in the dugout.

God, I hate people from Cincinnati (or however you spell it).

Everytime they pan to some of the women in the stands, I am reminded of John Denver's song "Saterday night in Toledo, ohio", where he goes,"here's to the dogs of Toledo, ohio-ladies we bid you good night."
