As expected, the Yanks will host the Twins begining Tuesday night in the Bronx. They will have to deal with Johan Santana and Brad Radke, not to mention Minnie's deep bullpen, and scrappy offense. For the first time in a long while, many prognosticators see the Yanks as ripe for the taking. While it is hard to disagree with the fact that New York's pitching is indeed suspect, I'm sure the Twins--and their fans--aren't getting ahead of themselves just yet.
It was sunny but chilly in New York today. It feels like the playoffs. Hopefully, there is still some good baseball ahead of us. Anyone excited yet? I'm feeling calm myself. Talk to me on Tuesday afternoon, and I'll be jumping out of my skin, ready to go, geeked, but cautiously optimistic as always. It'll be great to see the Yanks play in some big games again, but of course, Mr. Santana is waiting too. It won't come easily for New York, but then again, if it were easy it wouldn't be as much fun, right? Here's to them being up for the challenge.
