Yanks or A's

12 posts in this topic

Just wondering what peoples thoughts were on who you would rather see the Twins play in a five game series. I would like to see the Twins win the division but I guess I would rather have them play the Yanks in a five game series rather than a seven game.

A's.

Pretty much only cuz we own the A's.

I'd rather have the A's. Not because I don't want to play the Yankees, but that means we won the AL Central and most likely have dome field advantage throughout.

Doesn't matter. All roads to the World Series go through New York. At some point or another. I'd take the 5 game series vs. the Yankees. Especially with Johan pitching twice.

I'm gonna have to say:

Take down the A's while Det takes NY then put a good, well-deserved beat-down on the Tigs to prove Twins are Numero Uno.

Oosp...is this scenario still possible?

Thats a tough one. If they get the Yanks first, they only have to win 3 games vrs 4 in a 7 game series. If they play the A's, that means they won the division and get at least the first series at home, with the possiblity that they could have both series at home if they have the better record - right now the Yankees have 95 victories and we have 94. And if we play the A's, theres always the possibility that the Tigers could beat the Yanks.

I vote for the A's.

Whats really nice is that no Naional League team is really great this year, if we could just get to the World Series....

A's...Be nice to crush the A's and get some momentum on our side before getting to the ALCS...maybe we'll get lucky and the Kitties will take care of the Yanks...

I would like to see the Twins stomp on the Yanks just to prove to everyone this team is for real. I think we will need to face the Yankees at some point and I would rather do it during a 5 game series when Cytana can pitch 2 of the 5 games.

interesting post from top to bottom. When you look at from the outside-- you figure , not the yanks and the A's. But when it comes right down to it- you have for Yanks pitching- Johnson,Mussina,Wang- and for the A's Zito,Haren,Blanton,Harden Etc. To me that's a push. But when you look at the Yanks lineup 1-7- it nuts. Damon-Jeter-A-rod-Abreu-Giambi/Sheffield-Cano-Posada-Matsui. That's just filthy. Either way-- you likely have to beat the Yanks-, would be nice if we take care of the A's in 4-5 games and then face the Tigers. We need to win out and have Detroit lose 2.- thou this team is possible of anything.

Just bring on the Yanks right away, nothing would be sweeter than knocking off the evil empire in the first round. I just have a gut feeling this is our year against them.

I had the privledge of going to Game 2 of the Yankees/Twins 2004 AL Division Series at Yankee Stadium. For those that remember the game, Torii hit a big solo home-run in the top of the 11th inning to give us the lead. Then Nathan came in for his 3rd consecutive inning of work, got the 1st out on 2 pitches and then proceeded to give up 2 runs, the Twins lost an absolute heart-breaker, and ended up losing the series. It was one of the most exciting games I've every been to. The Yankee Stadium playoff atmosphere is something everyone should experience, simply amazing.

So anyway, I would like nothing more than for the Twins to get a little pay-back for that game. This team is special, I really think we'll do it.

The Yanks are rolling right now, and now Sheffield is back and Matsui, they are tough, I thin if you ask the Twins they'll say bring on the Yanks, but realistically, I would like to play Oakland first and let the Tigers take a crack at 'em first.

Side note, hopefully Silva isn't in the playoff rotation, yikes! Imagine the Yankess teeing off on his fastball?

I know he's had three good outings previous to last night, but after that showing in the 4th inning last night you almost have to go with either Garza or Radke as the #3 starter in the playoffs. Silva needs to return to the pen, both in the playoffs and next year as well.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
