The Twins are just 2.5 games back of Detroit, with an elimination number of 9. Further more, the Twins have a 4-game series coming up in Detroit, sandwiched between two 3-game sets with Kansas City. Detroit has two series with the "tougher" White Sox sandwiching their series against Minnesota. That 4-game set in Detroit could either bury the Twins or give them the edge. The Twins have had an amazing story this year with Joe Mauer having an MVP type season, and the team itself staying in contention despite having Carl Pavano as one of their starters. That being said, I would love to face the Twins in the ALDS. We should be able to beat either team, but we've really dominated the Twins this season (We're 7-0 against Minnesota). Not that Detroit has done much better (5-1 against Detroit).
So who would you rather face in the ALDS? Detroit or Minnesota?
