New York Confident Heading Into AL Wild Card Game vs

CLEVELAND OH- SEPTEMBER 26 Minnesota Twins catcher Jason Castro advances to third base on a flout to center field during the fourth inning of the Major League Baseball game between the Minnesota Twins and Cleveland Indians New York Yankees vs. Minnesota Twins AL Wild Card Game - 10/3/17 MLB Pick, Odds, and Prediction
Isaac Mcdaniel | 04 October, 2017, 00:29

The Yankees host the Minnesota Twins in the American League wild card playoff game on Tuesday. Over his 211.1 innings and 16-8 record this year, Santana has a 3.28 ERA with 167 Ks.

Ervin Santana completed his third season with Minnesota by going 16-8 with a 3.28 ERA that was the second-lowest of his career and a 1.13 WHIP that also was his second-lowest of his career. They led the major leagues in scoring over that span despite losing slugger Miguel Sano to an injured shin that leaves his status for Tuesday's wild-card game a wild card.

The Twins finished the regular season at 85-77 on the strength of their hitting. The contest is scheduled for an 8:00 p.m. start time and it will be televised nationally on ESPN. And this winner-take-all game is the ideal opportunity for the 2017 Twins to break free from the shackles of history and make some of their own.

In other words, the Twins aren't supposed to be here and the Yankees aren't supposed to lose.

If Severino can pitch five good innings, Joe Girardi would be able to piece together the rest of the game with one dominant bullpen arm after another.

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Los Angeles Chargers primer
First-round pick Mike Williams was ruled out earlier in the week, but it's nice to see him practicing albeit on a limited basis. They've done that despite the fact that they have the fourth most third downs of eight yards or more in the league (21 of 43).

Churchill medallist Billy Slater and Cooper Cronk coy on NRL futures
But Melbourne are not the best defensive side in the NRL for nothing, and they were content to give away penalty after penalty. Andrew Johns likened the Storm to artists at work, but it's hard to imagine any artist attaining such perfection first go.

The Twins have arguably the best defense in the league, and it's been a huge reason why they are where they are. But if Santana can give you five or six innings, or even more, it gives the Twins a great chance.

The Twins are making their first playoff appearance since 2010.

If Severino gets into any kind of trouble, the Yankees can turn to Chad Green and his 1.83 ERA, or David Robertson and his 1.03 ERA since joining the club in July.

"I think there was a stretch where he was matched up against (Boston's Chris) Sale, (Clevelan's Corey) Kluber, and then Sale again, and I thought he responded really well and pitched really good games", said Yankees manager Joe Girardi prior to Monday's workout. Like I said, the Yankees should win the game, but with the line being so thick I think the Twins have more than a fair shot at paying off here. Minnesota will be playing with a chip on its shoulder on Tuesday in the Bronx as it strives to show the baseball world that the Twins are here to stay. The one loss occurred September 18 in NY when Santana allowed two runs on seven hits in 5 2/3 innings. Anything is possible. But if their respective final months were any indication, the deck is stacked heavily toward the Yankees.The Indians will present a far different challenge. "Whether he's going to start or not, I still haven't inked it in yet, but I'm waiting to have him on the bench".

The Yankees lineup includes an interesting mix of young players and veterans including Judge, Gary Sanchez (33 home runs, 90 runs batted in), Jacoby Ellsbury, Matt Holiday, and Chase Headley. He has the best stuff on the team, and is the second-best pitcher on the staff, after Santana.
