Today's Twins-Indians game had to be suspended after eleven innings and a tied 5-5 score so that the field could be readied in time for the Minnesota-PSU game, or as its known around State College, PA, the latest reason to fire Joe Paterno.
The Twins are trying to keep pace with the Angels for the second seed in the AL in order to gain homefield in the first round of the playoffs. They will complete the game tomorrow before their regularly scheduled season finale.
Manager Ron Gardenhire decided to use it as an opportunity to adverstise for a new stadium: "We're in the middle of a mess now. We don't need a stadium? C'mon." Good company man that Ron. Bud Selig would be proud. It's not like he never used an extra-inning tied ballgame become a PR opp.
