I like the chances of the Twins winning a one-game wild card playoff in Yankee Stadium much better than their failed attempts to win a five-game series against the Bronx Bombers in 2003, 2004, 2009 and 2010. Don't forget, too: Minnesota actually won Game 1 in Yankee Stadium in both 2003 and 2004.
If it is going to be Twins and Yankees in the playoffs, this regular-season series at Yankee Stadium will play a role in that outcome. Twins at Yankees, 6 p.m., FSN.
"While I loved last week's game against New Orleans, what we saw Sunday was a failure of the offensive line to protect the quarterback. I don't disagree that Bradford would have been better ... but considering the offensive line, I'm not sure it would have been much better."

"Twins reliever Tyler Duffey has been carrying a baseball and pen around, in hopes of getting John Smoltz's autograph. A childhood favorite."
