[picappgallerysingle id=”9775098″]The AL Central champion Minnesota Twins lost today to the Toronto Blue Jays, but more importantly, the New York Yankees (yuck) lost to the Boston Red Sox 8-4. That means the Tampa Bay Rays will be the number one seed by clinching the AL East, the Twins fall to number two, the Yankees (yuck) get the wild card spot, and the Texas Rangers are bringing up the rear.
The upshot? The Twins will host the New York Yankees (yuck) at Target Field beginning Wednesday for the ALDS. Good news is, we’ll probably get the prime time slot. Bad news…well, there is no bad news. I think that the Twins will beat the Yankees in the ALDS. That’s right, I do.
That means we’ll see Francisco Liriano battle it out opposite C.C. Sabathia. The Yankees have lost nine straight games against a left-handed starter, and I think the Twins should extend that streak to ten. And then eleven when Duensing starts game three.
But whatever happens, here’s to a terrific regular season for the 2010 American League Central champions, the Minnesota Twins.
