Okay, thinking ahead to the playoffs in NY.  Here is my lineup if Kepler is healthy.

1. Arraez-2B

2. Polanco-SS

3. Cruz-DH

4. Kepler-RF

5. Garver-C

6. Rosario-LF

7. Sano-3B

8. Cave-CF

9. Marwin-1B

I don't start Cron because he is hurting and I'm guessing off season surgery.  Plus I think you need the experience in the lineup.  

I could live with that.  Good Mix of L and R handed batters.

I knew the lineup would be okay, but really had no idea that it would make up for sub par starting pitching and a bullpen with Blake Parker pitching in important spots.

When Cleveland came back after being down at least eleven games, and got ahead, I thought it was over for the Twins. I thought Cleveland was by far the better team.

niw on to probably the yanks - not much success with them

will this be the year we finally beat the Yankees? 

If the twins make the World Series they better break out a new version of the homer hankey

Berrios looks decent in his final tune-up.

Next stop: The Bronx on Friday. 

Big spot for him.  I'm excited to see his first postseason start.

Let's pretend they make the postseason.....How many pitchers do they carry?

I carry these 12:  Ode, Berrios, Duffy, Littell, Stashak, May, Romo, Graterol, Rodgers, Smeltzer, Dobnak, Thorpe. 

Twelve is likely the max they'll carry into New York.  Which of these guys does Gibby take the spot of?  

Ode-Nope

Berrios-Nope

Duffy-Nope

Littell-Maybe

Stashak-Nope

May-Nope

Romo-Nope

Graterol-He can throw 100 Rocco.

Rodgers-Nope

Smeltzer-Need spot lefties, nope.

Thorpe-See above

Dobnak-Nope

Scratch Arraez from the playoffs.....fluke stupid injury. 

Perhaps not, sounds like it was just an ankle sprain.

Going to be a long 5 days until we get to Friday.

The goal:  Get one in the Bronx. Don't care how they do it, what it looks like, who pitches, etc.  They need to win 1 game in New York.

Like the hot team to win the WS.  Oakland went 63-31 since being at 500, with a lot of talented rookies moving up since then.

They could give Houston some problems if they get past Tampa

but trying to beat Verlander, Cole, and Greinke is going to be a tall task.

Hopefully they get the afternoon slots for Friday and Saturday.  The Twins are better on the road than at home.  One of two (fingers crossed), then find a way to win two at home.

They were like 6-3 against Houston in September, but 2-8 early season,

The Tampa game is worrisome.

They are playing the Yankees.  They will be in prime time games as much as possible because that's what the networks will want.

I met Gary Cederstrom (Minot) in Foley’s bar (must see, incredible) in NYC after a Twins game in 2006. I was wearing a Sioux wind breaker, and the umpires that he was with, thought that the interlocking ND on the sleeve (from a distance) was for Norte Dame. He knew it was North Dakota was very approachable.

Late the next night I was in the same bar, and the bartender recognizing me from the previous night says "hey, you missed Torii Hunter and a few players earlier”. I said damn, when did they leave? He replied "When Gardenhire and the coaches came in.” Bartender told me that Gardenhire liked to bartend and would frequently (when Twins were in town) go behind the bar and wait on people.

The bar is wall to wall, floor to ceiling, sports history

Milwaukee had the perfect recipe going for a postseason victory until Hader screwed it up.  If I'm them I try to squeeze one more out of Pomeranz.  

That's how the Twins will have to beat the Yankees.  Get four or five from whoever opens (with an extremely short leash), and then different looks the rest of the way.

When I was in high school and the scorekeeper for our basketball games he would ref 4 to 5 games in our town every year. I remember talking to him about umping as he had just got to the majors. He was at 3rd when Rickey Henderson broke Lou Brock's career steals record. Always thought it was pretty cool that he still came home during the winter to do HS basketball.
