Horrendous call. What's up with these umps anyways? Terrible! If you make a bad call then reverse it...Twins can't catch a break. Why is Dumatrait being use sparingly to get an out or two here and there when he has shown that he's capable of more innings. Don't have very much faith in Burnett and/or Hoey even though Hoey did his job today and not yesterday. Another tough loss especially coming back to take a 5-3 lead and of course, the bullpen blows it again...this time, with the help of the umps!

2011, unfortunately will go down as the LOST SEASON in Twins history. Major rebuilding is in order for next season.

Joe say: "Bad break, fellas. Makes me get all weird inside when I got paid $141K for such heartbreak."

Call it bad break, but If that fan in orange not there ball still goes over those bleachers anyway and remains on field.

Ron Gardenhire called this a "disappointing loss" in a post game interview on Twins Live. A disappointing loss? Wouldn't the admission of s disappointing season be more appropriate. This is exactly what is wrong with this organization.

Bad team, bad luck and now Kubel's hurt. What a year. Whether the fan touched the ball or not, I don't think there's any way Peralta scores from first. To assume he'd get three bases is a joke. But it probably didn't help to see Delmon trotting over there and arriving late.

Heres a suggestion,stop watching a AA(yes I went there,not AAA)farm team by paying MAJOR LEAGUE PRICES!!!!When this team draws less than a million fans a season they'll be asking for tax payers to pony up by subsidizing them with a better lease arrangement,how does it feel to be screwed by a billionaire and the YANKEES!!!!LOL!!!SKOL VIKINGS!!!

Twins don't need any help from the umpires when it comes to blowing a game.
