I don't know how the Yanks always do it, but they always find a way against the Twins.

Yeah I was at a playoff game and we were up 3-0 against CC in 2010 on an early Cuddy bomb. We did not win.


Buxton should have bunted. Squeeze.

You think that's bad, 2001 was far worse. The Yankees practically went into the playoffs being ordained champions, and you were "un-American" if you rooted against them.
Luis Gonzalez' hit was amazing.

Exactly. This current format is more exciting because of the race in the final month. Taking that away would kill it.

Half of the prophecy is complete.

Edit: can't figure out how to post image from mobile because I'm an old man with a feeble grasp on technology but I said to a buddy earlier +220 on Twins because I thought Sev would choke the yank offense would try too hard

And just like I said. We leave so many guys in scoring position. We've been up 3-0 against the yanks just recently.
Great to get 3 but at least a sac fly would have been huge.

Not at all about traditions.

Baseball is not a game that should ever be decided a 1 game elimination. Old system was fine, this punishes the legitimate WC winner.

I was going to say that leaving those two on base could hurt the Twins. 4 or 5 runs now could be a lot different than 3, especially with not knowing how Santana is going to do and facing the Yankee's bullpen, even if it's through 8.2 innings.

Just make it a 3 game series where the legitimate WC winners get home field the entire series like how 3 game series work during the season. 1 game eliminations are exciting but its not really conducive to how baseball works.

the old system punished everyone who wasn't in the AL east and at the same time made the AL east boring as fuck

There is not much difference between 1 and 3 games when talking about randomness in baseball.

Let's just be thankful there's 2 extra spots that shouldn't be there. To begin with.

Yeah,Baseball is a gane where your best pitcher can have an off day, so deciding everything with one gane elimination is no different than having a coin flip match.
