    Lord, but do I want to take a series from the Yankees at Yankee stadium. I don't think I'm overstating things when I say that Twins fans need this. We judge our team way too much by how they compare to the Yankees. Taking three of four changes the vibe in this city a bunch.

    I totally agree... The Twins have played so poorly against the Yankees and had so much bad luck against them - for so long - they've become a symbol of the Twins' shortcommings.... To win this series would be a definite confidence boost to the team and it's fans... Hey, if you can beat the Yankees, you can beat anybody... Right?

    Does anyone know when the Twins last won a series in NY?

    If we win this game, just unfurl the mission accomplished banner and call it a season

    God that is a long time...here's hoping to a series win, but I can't get my hopes up or I will crash and burn AGAIN with this club. At least its not a playoff series...seen too many of those games where we fall apart to this team.

    Phil Hughes might just be the man to allow it to happen.

    ^ Yeah. I definitely think Swarzak can outpace Hughes at this point in time.

    Com'n Swarzak! Please pitch an inning without giving all the runs back!

    To quote a Yankee great, it's deja vu all over again.

    We have seen this movie before, no? I hope this settles down and doesn't end up 18-16.

    It would be quite OK with me if Alexi Casilla never again took the field as a Minnesota Twin.

    Where were the Twins scouts when Curtis Granderson was playing for the Mankato Mashers (now MoonDogs) of the North Woods League a few short years ago?
