    Twins Owner Punks Yankees

    Hey guys,

    Anybody hear what the 91 year old Twins owner said about the Yanks ??

    He said he wants to play the Yanks in the first round cause he knows the Twins will beat them...

    Considering the Yanks have pretty much owned the Twins in the past, he might want to back off that statement. Might want to wish to play the A's in the first round.

    It was funny as hell when I heard it earlier today. I hope Steinbrener responds to this.

    What i've heard is they want to play the yankees because they think the yankees are the team to beat. it is easier to beat a better opponent in 5 games than in 7. the longer the series, the more likely the better team will win, thus they want the Yanks in the ALDS.

    you're right....he was coming off a 7-9 season where he lost the last 7 games of the season after starting out 7-2. Great hire!

    He then preceeded to go 4-28 as Jets coach


    at least he gave us Chrebet!

    I see the logic here. However, this means the Twins would have to purposely stop playing for the division and just settle for the wild card.
