Thread: Yankees-Twins Wild Card game

  1. #1

    Yankees-Twins Wild Card game

    Severino vs Santana. Sounds like Sano will PH but wonít be in the lineup. Thatís a big loss on their end, but they played like gangbusters without him in the last two months. Itís a one gamer. We wipe them out in a series with home field, but anything can happen in a one gamer. Hereís to hoping the Yankees prevail!
    The rebuild is complete.

    Yankees are a massive -256 ML favorite.

    Hereís the thing that I donít get from sox fans and something Iíve already admitted on my playoff spots. I clearly donít think ďrootingĒ for a team makes any difference on the game, but it does change perspective.

    Would any sox fan want the Yankees to lose, even if it damages their teamís playoff hopes?

    If the Twins pull off the upset tonight, then theyíre going to get smashed by the Indians. Santana and Berrios are their only two good starters and Santana would be relegated to a single game. Kluber and Carrasco will already have a 2-0 lead on the Twins by the time Santana returns. If the Twins win tonight, you are effectively getting the Indians with their rotation intact. If the Yankees win, then all bets are off. Youíre still getting the Indians in terms of likelihood, but thereís a far greater chance of a Yankees upset and a far better chance that Kluber has to throw twice and likely delayed until game 3, which is always good. Also, if the Yankees win tonight and win the series with the Indians, then the sox have a far greater chance to win the AL as any Yankee-Sox series is destined for 7 and when thereís a game 7, anything can happen. I cannot stand the sox. But if the Yankees win tonight, I am rooting for them to beat Houston because I know my team will have a better shot at a World Series with Houston out of the way. I anticipate sox fans who are rational would think the same way about NYY vs CLE, but how many rational sox fans are there, right? Lol

    Yep. 100% agree with this, except I want the Twins to win because I am rooting for Cleveland to win it all if the Red Sox can't. I want the Indians to play the Twins so that they are a safer bet to move on. But, under ordinary circumstances, I would be rooting for the Yankees.

    I think the Twins have to use Berrios as a relief ace tonight if they want to win.
