The post-season gets underway today with the American League wild card game, at 8:00 on ESPN.
The Twins take on the Yankees, their playoff kryptonite. In a scenario reminiscent of the Rangers earlier playoff struggles, Minnesota cannot get past New York, having lost five straight Division Series, four to the Yankees.
New York is a huge favorite again tonight.
Eventually the Rangers beat the Yankees. Maybe this is the year the Twins finally do.
Here is the playoff schedule:
Ervin Santana (16-8, 3.28) vs. Luis Severino (16-6, 2.98)
Game time: 8:08
