Lots of discussion about home field v. the Yankees.
If the Twins win the division, they won't face the Yankees until the 3rd round, if ever. Plus, all of these games are on the road for everybody. All of the AL games will be played in SoCal; all of the NL games will be played in Texas.
They Twins are now in first place and if they take 2 out the 3 remaining games they will win the division.
The Twins only control their own destiny vis a vis winning the division if the White Sox lose tonight (Thursday).Even if they do, the Twins can only be guaranteed a division title if they sweep.However many games the Twins lose this weekend is how many the White Sox would have to lose for the Twins to win the Central.
