WJON Staffers Ready for Postseason Twins Baseball, Tuesday Night's Game on WJON

Can Aaron Judge Unite America? Yankees Star's Silence on Politics Is Pleasing Conservatives

Minnesota and NY are both in the playoffs after successful rebuilds, with Miguel Sano and Byron Buxton powering the Twins and Aaron Judge emerging as an MVP contender with the Yankees. The first being the two-team wild card system.

This game is going to come down to who has the better bullpen, and that edge goes to the Yankees.

The Yankees host the Minnesota Twins in the American League wild card playoff baseball game on Tuesday. It's the Twins against the Yankees in the Bronx, with the right to play in the American League Divisional playoffs at stake. They slumped for about a month, were 45-40 at the All-Star break and finished with a 21-8 surge to get to 91-71.

Over on the Twins' side, they just finished against the Tigers as their final regular-season series. We're going to see how the workout goes today. "I'm going to watch the swings and the at-bats", Girardi said. "Whatever your motivation is, that's fine". "I like the fact we get to throw Luis Severino out there tomorrow". Led by Judge, Sanchez, Severino and a cast of productive veterans, NY (91-71) improved by seven wins over last season and finished with its best record since 2012. Ervin Santana had some clunkers, but his performance in his second All-Star season was an vast lift for a pitching staff that languished at the bottom of baseball the last few years.

They've improved their pitching and had some timely hitting, but they're in the playoffs because they've played a lot better in the field. In three games, he was 1-for-8 with two strikeouts. And there are still have guys like Eddie Rosario, Max Kepler and Jorge Polanco.

Didi Gregorius hit 25 home runs this season.

Gardner and Joe Mauer, who were on their teams when the Yankees beat the Twins in the 2010 ALDS, also had solid seasons.

Ex-Bears receiver says it's time to start rookie Mitchell Trubisky
In the fourth quarter, the Chicago Bears tacked on a garbage time touchdown, a three-yard rush by Jordan Howard to make it 35-14. Packers players released a statement this week saying they would intertwine arms before the game as a show of unity.

Minnesota was 52-56 on August 5 and closed the season on a 33-21 run. I couldn't hit all three pitches. Those numbers may not seem like much, but keep in mind that Bird hit four of those nine homers and hit.379 in his last nine games.

"I feel good, I feel healthy", Sanchez said through an interpreter. "So, it's good to be back".

Fans will be able to watch every pitch of the #Al Wild Card game between the Twins and Yankees nationally on ESPN. "I'm probably the only one that it means a little bit more, maybe". "That's what I did, and that's how that worked out and helped me".

NY has some capable hitters on their roster. Severino faced the Twins for the first time on September 20, giving up three runs and five hits in three innings.

Ervin Santana pitches for the Twins. With everything on the line and the Yankees' new go-to arm, count on him to be fully locked in tonight. Ervin Santana took a tough loss in the series opener after allowing two runs over 5 2/3 innings. "Like he covered the whole home plate". Over his 211.1 innings and 16-8 record this year, Santana has a 3.28 ERA with 167 Ks.

Santana has made six career starts at the new Yankee Stadium and has yet to win.

Many people counted the Twins out, especially at the trade deadline, but Brian Dozier believed that they could do it. Saying at the stretch when the Twins were leading the Cleveland Indians in the division, he knew that this team has a real shot.
