Bah Humbug.

When I saw the news this afternoon that the Twins had acquired Eddie Guardado, I was so happy that I could have actually shed a tear of joy, if it weren't for the fact that I strive for a robot-like lack of outward emotion around other people. I love Eddie. I love him like family. I love him more than I love a few specific members of my family, actually.

So long, Mike Lamb. Sorry it didn't work out.

Didn't Gardy say earlier that he was making plans to give Justin a break mid-roadtrip? So much for that. Without a healthy Cuddy, do we have anyone else who can play 1st well? Not that I was ever particularly excited about seeing Mike Lamb at 1st...but still. It's good to have a back-up plan.

And just as acquiring Eddie and seeing him back in a Twins uniform was the highest high point of my day.....losing in extra innings was the lowest low point. It really broke my heart. The Twins made me feel a little bipolar today....I'm happy! No, I'm sad! Mania....depression....thanks to the Twins, I was all over the map today. To be honest, the rollercoaster ride wasn't all that great.

Those frickin' annoying trains in the background in Seattle don't really help matters either.

I'm sure there were a lot of people who saw that Beltre homer and started complaining about how we should have traded for him. I still disagree. I just don't like him that much. And I especially don't like him tonight. Bah humbug.

On a different note: I'm itching to do some crazy Twins photoshopping, but I'm fresh out of good pictures that inspire me to an appropriate level of ridiculousness. If any readers want to help out that cause, feel free to email me any great pics to the address listed on my blogger profile.

Guardado was an awesome trade to get. Unfortunately, sometimes you just can't control things. Like I think it's total BS that you apparently get 2 bases when a certain 2nd basemen mis-throws a ball and it ends up in the camera well. I can understand if the guy was going to 2nd and it was overthrown that they would award him 3rd, BUT HE WAS AT 1ST!
Also, Ruiz is the backup 1st basemen. I don't know how good/bad he is, but he HAS to be able to do a better job than Lamb. After all, he's done a much better job of hitting than Lamb has.

I heard the trains too! At first I thought it was just the trains around my town, but then relized it was coming from the TV. And they were ah-noying
