Let’s get some opinions out there:
and the most important one . . .
I'm worried about the Twins..
Cliff's lineup-comparison at Pinstriped Bible is excellent. But man, the comments there are just...well, I'm a proud Banterer so perhaps am biased. Ahoy Score Truck!! HuZAAH!!
The Twinkies? Nah. I'm more worried about the Rays....and the Phillies. But just in case [knocking Kerry] "Tap, tap, tap."
Boatzilla, let's set that b'fast meeting up for round Two (if we make it!)??
BTW, SIX of the top eight payrolls in baseball did not make the playoffs this year. So a big middle-finger to anyone bringing up the Yankees salaries in this Twins series.
4) of course, the second highest payroll is in the same division as the yankees, whcih limits their chances of making the playoffs. But your larger point is well taken.
