That was an amazing win last night by the Twins, and an exciting game all around. The Twins will be coming into tonights series with a good amount of momentum going their way. That being said, I just don't think they have what it takes to beat us. Now, I'm not writing them off or saying that the Yankees can take it easy. Not at all. They're a contending team and the Yankees need to face them appropriately. But the Yankees have the better team, and I really don't see the Twins taking this series. They could always surprise us, but I guess we'll see tonight.
October baseball is the most amazing baseball you can ever watch. I'm already feeling excited about tonights game. Waiting for 6pm is going to be torture. I'm sure a lot of you out there are feeling the same way. So to help pass the time, ponder this question:
Which Yankee player impressed you the most this season, and why?
Its a tough question seeing as so many players did so many things well this year, but I'll have to respect the gangster and vote for Jeter. He showed us a lot with his defense, and his offense improved from last season. Not only that, but he swithced from the two-spot to lead off, something he didn't enjoy much back in 2005, and did it flawlessly. A .334 average, .406 OBP, 212 hits, and 30 stolen bases out of your lead off guy is pretty impressive. Plus, his leadership score of 97% is highest in the majors. An impressive clip!
So who impressed you the most?
