Yankees Postseason Domination Of Twins Continue, Take Commanding 2-0 Series Lead

Sometimes it really sucks having kids. I only got to ctach the last 2 innings of tonight's game because my night was filled with giving baths, changing diapers, watching Jungle Junction, putting kids to bed, and feeding the little one. By the time all of that wrapped up the game was pretty much over. I'm definitely ecstatic with the outcome, just wish I could have seen more of it. Following along on my phone just isn't the same.

The only comment I'll make about the win is that Andy Pettitte is the man. I was skeptical about Andy pitching game 2. I had blogged before that I would have gone with Phil Hughes in game 2 and Pettitte in game 3. So far the flip-flop is working out pretty well. I'm still a little worried about how Phil will do in game 3. As I previously wrote, PH has been much better on the road. I hope he pitches well. The last thing I want is for the Twins to win game 3. When you're up 2-0 you have all the momentum. I don't want the Look-alikes to get any of that back. I hope Phil shuts them down.

If you're a Yankee fan you have to feel pretty damn good about how this postseason has started. Winning 2 on the road in a best-of-5 is huge. It's going to extremely tough for the Twins to get back into this series. It could happen but based on the Yankees complete and utter domination of the Twins in the ALDS, the odds of them taking the next 3 are very slim. What's the stat? The Twins have had the lead in the last 10 postseason games versus the Yankees and have lost them all. That's pretty bad.

I did a little gloating at work today. Our sister site is in Duluth, Minnesota. I sent out an e-mail disguised as a "knowledge builder." The e-mail read, "It has come to our attention that there is a serious knowledge gap that needs to be addressed to all, but this applies more to those working out of the Duluth office. Everyone in Great Lakes should be aware of this but we figured a reminder is necessary. Please take a quick second to print this out and tape it to your desks. Thank you for your attention to this matter." A PowerPoint slide was attached and when viewed they were treated to a giant interlocking NY with the message "Yankees Rule!!! Twins drool!!!" That got a lot of laughs and a lot of nasty, yet respectful, replies. I was hoping not to have to eat crow and thanks to tonight's Yankee victory I don't think I'm going to have to.

Take care of business Phil.

Peace, love and Pinstripes,
