Minnesota Twins To Play The Yankees...Boston Red Sox Are READY!

The Minnesota Twins defeated the Detroit Tigers in a 12 inning comeback battle by a score of 6-5. Early in the game, they were behind the Tigers by a score of 3-0, but the Motor City team could not hold down the home team. They will play the Yankees with no days of rest starting tonight. Good luck to them...they'll need it. Boy, will they! CC is going for the pinstripers, not that he has a stellar postseason record.

The Boston Red Sox, who will spend their second day on the left coast, will play two night games in Anaheim and will be at always friendly Fenway Park early next week. Let's hope we can take two of the first three. Remember, this is only a best of five series. The first team to take three games moves on to the American League Championship Series. Yes, the Sox have had great success in past postseasons against the Halos but every year is different. Here are the pitching matchups announced by Boston skipper Terry "Tito" Francona for the first two games in Anaheim...

10/8/ LAA...9:37 PM ET...TBS...Lester (15-8) vs. Lackey (11-8)
10/9/ LAA...9:37 PM ET...TBS...Beckett (17-6) vs. Weaver (16-8)

I'll have the games three and four pitching matchups at Fenway tomorrow, right here. The times have not yet been set. But here's a question that's been on my mind...where does Matsuzaka fit in? I'll tell you even though I might not agree with Tito's thinking process. He will be the first one out of the bullpen if a starter falters unless a fourth Boston starter will be needed. We'll see him toeing the rubber, that's for sure. The Boston Red Sox are pumped up and more than ready to try to win another World series. I have you?

And hello to you too, Nads. My day will get better as soon as I get home to baseball and a nice glass of wine. I hope your day is also good.

It's almost painful having to wait until tomorrow night for the Sox game. Another Twins victory tonight will help. Can they do it, Pete?

Gee, this is the first time I've read Nadi's comment and good ol' BFW's response. I went to bed a little early last night to watch a couple TV shows and next thing I knew, it's today! Already!!

BFW, 9:37pm EDT is when the excitement starts. I'm not surprised that the Yankees snuffed the bone-weary Twins last night. CC is too good-good. They'll march right through the Twinkies or I'd be totally shocked.

Thanks BFW. Hi're still sleeping, just like most normal folks GO SOX!!!!!
