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?

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.

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?
