BASEBALL: Proceed With Caution

The Twins look, on paper, like a pretty solid team. But let's not forget that these guys were 46-30 this season against the weak AL Central. Against the AL East and AL West? 35-33, an 83-win clip. Not so impressive. Compare that to the Yankees, 71-41 against the same two divisions (albeit without playing themselves), a 103-win clip, or the Red Sox, 70-42, a 101-win pace.

Two words. Johan Santana.

As a Twins fan, I'm realistic to the fact the Yankee's lineup is much stronger, but the twins have a better starting lineup. If Santana, Radke and Silva can make it to eight inning, the Twins have a very good chance to pull off an upset with Rincon and Nathan closing. It will be a fun and close series.
