    I agree that this could be the year. After Sabathia, that Yankees rotation has question marks all over it. But its all about that mental block. CC Sabathia will pitch game 1, I think most people will prolly have the Yankees in that one despite it being at Target Field. And after the Twins lose game 1, will they get into that mind set oh no here we go again....

      CC will come back on short rest for a game 4 too. I think its likely to be CC, Pettitte, Hughes, CC, Pettitte.

        Our middle infield is much better than it was last year and now we have Thome and a deeper bullpen. If only we had Morneau, too =/

        • I don't know how you can possibly say we aren't better this year than last. :/ I don't know how we've played above our heads either. Kubel, Cuddyer, and Span all had seasons well below expectations.

          That being said we annually play like a bunch of pussies against the Yankees so I'm not too confident.

            I just can't see how you can be more equipped without your best or second best player (depending how you see it). The middle infield isnt that great. By any means.

              You are better. But I just don't think the talent is better. You have guys playing over their heads. At least in my opinion.

                No one said it was great. He said it was better which is absolutely true. Hudson is a little above average and Hardy is a solid defender who has hit in the second half.

                  Neither hits enough for me. Granted Jeter's been horrible this year. But on par with these two guys.

                      Who is playing over their head besides Valencia and I suppose duesing? Guys like Kubel, cuddyer, and span have actually been disappointments this year. Like I said I think you'll win but you're selling us a little short here.

                        You're entire pitching staff. Maybe the AL Central is just that bad. But wehn I look at that roster. Nothing on it says mid 90 win team to me.

                        • The Twins are a much better team than last year, but getting rid of their momentum was a mistake, especially with how badly they pitched in the last two weeks. The worst thing that can happen to them is if the Yanks jump on Liriano early, like yodapoop said.

                            Entire pitching staff?! Liriano's Era should be about a full run lower and slowey is a better pitcher than he's shown this year. Pavano I'll give you I suppose. Well see. And the AL central is that bad.

                            • I forgot to set my lineups for today so Huddy was on the bench. If I had that W I would have won the 3rd place game. FML.
