    Twins fans, this is basically the playoffs

    I'm just going to take this is as the first round of the playoffs for the Twins. I think they have to win 5 of their final 6 to have a chance. 3 of those being against the Sox.

    Re: Twins fans, this is basically the playoffs

    I agree. It's like being down 3-1 right now, where they need to win 3 in a row.

    I'm going to be rooting hardcore, but lets face it, chances are slim.

    We're throwing all of our pitchers that are slumping and they have their best ready to go. BUT, the game is not played on paper and we're tough in the dome.

    When was the last time the Sox played well in the dome? Let alone when the season was on the line.

    I see Twins winning 2 and having to sweep the Royals for a chance.

    Re: Twins fans, this is basically the playoffs

    Well, good news for Twins fans in that they miss Danks. Hopefully we can clinch and rest him for the playoffs.

    Vazquez, Buehrle and Floyd....it's on you.

    Hopefully D-Weezy can continue the hot play.

    Re: Twins fans, this is basically the playoffs

    Scenarios:

    Sox sweep: Sox win Central
    Sox win 2-1: exit series up 3.5, Twins must sweep, Sox must get swept and lose add-on game to Detroit to force one game playoff
    Twins win 2-1: Sox exit series up 1.5 with magic number of 3. Sox finish with Cleveland (and one game with Det if needed)
    Twins sweep: Twins exit series up .5 game with all hell breaking loose.

    Re: Twins fans, this is basically the playoffs

    You'd want the Twins to really make sure they finish more than a half game up....cause then the Sox would get the Tigers and then the Twins at the Cell for a half game playoff, where our winning percentage is around .667.

    Honestly, from this point out it is on the Sox. They control their destiny.

    That's deep. It wasn't all that clear to me... I thought the Twins controlled it and were favored to win the division....

    Seriously, If you look at the loss column, the Twins are 3 games behind the Sox. If the Twins sweep, the Twins and Sox are tied for first. Afterwards, as long as the Twins do better than the Sox in the final series, the makeup game won't matter.

    IMO, if the Sox win today, it's over

    At least it's not Tigers vs Indians for the Central....at least I begrudgingly respect the Twins.

    Re: Twins fans, this is basically the playoffs

    Seriously, does anyone think there is a place in Ames that I could catch this game at? T

    THE most frustrating part about living in Central Iowa is that I never get any Twins or Wild coverage.....
