    Against the Yankees, I like the twins in five. I donít know if I like them in seven.

    The Yankees have handled Twins pitching all season. What makes you think it will be any different?

    Im not betting on Twins pitching. Im betting that the Yankees pitching is horrible. Games can be won 10-9.

    Since it's a five game series I don't think I like them in seven either.

    That said, I put a bet down on them to win the series. Not sure if they will, but at 2 to 1 odds (probably due to typically high betting slips on the Yankees) I like the bet.

    Jordan's Furniture(New England area) does that with the Red Sox but they get insurance just in case.

    The point was that Iím glad weíre playing them first. I thought it was pretty obvious.

    I think that's standard in every major market.

    It always seems to be furniture, though. Not car dealerships or head shops or whatever. I don't know why or when furniture outlets became the clown show of retail.

    True. But I think people are grossly underestimating the Yankees pitching talent, especially when compared to the Twins' pitching talent. Remember, in the playoffs, the bullpens are used a lot. And the Yankees bullpen is very strong. And Severino is back and looking good.

    Sabathia was expected to pitch out of the bullpen but he didn't make the ALDS roster(shoulder).

    Yankees pitching gave up 39 runs to the Twins this year in 6 games. Not exactly the stuff of legend.

    And the Yankees scored 43 runs and won four of those six games. Ergo the point I'm making.

    I never used the word legend.

    I used the word underestimated. And I stick by that. They just need to be better than MN pitching. Which I'm more confident about than comparing them to Houston pitching.

    I was on the fence whether he would have been effective anyway. Maybe a spot relief appearance against a lefty or two. But that's about it.

    That series wasn't a split due to a phenomenal catch by Aaron Hicks. The Twins run total goes up to 42 without it.

    I still agree though, I don't trust our pitching to be better going in.

    Braves/Cards would be more interesting if I didn't hate both franchises and fan bases.

    This is going as expected for the Nationals.
