I saw Moya pitch for the first time last night. I dig it. Especially that weird twitching right before he goes into the wind-up.

I prefer the Twins to end their season by...

  • a close loss to the Yankees in the wildcard game. (71%, 12 Votes)
  • a blowout loss to the Yankees in the wildcard game. (18%, 3 Votes)
  • missing the wildcard game. (12%, 2 Votes)

2017 Game 150: Minnesota Twins vs. New York Yankees

As mentioned in today's CoC, we're hitting the final stretch of the regular season, which hopefully isn't also the final stretch of the Twins' season. 4 more series remain (@NYY, @DET, @CLE, DET), and we start off with a chance to cut into NY's hold on the first WC slot (currently at 4.0 games).

Also, this will be a test for the Twins as they're currently looking at a one game playoff in NY. As history has shown, the combination of the Yankees, playoffs, and the Twinkies does not bode well. Hopefully this series will be a chance to work through some issues in advance.

Santana faces off against Twins cast-off Garcia, who may feel he has something to prove.
