Excellent. Now that the Yankees have been eliminated, I may become bitter Red Sox fan...Version 2. ::pulls in middle finger and does Matt Hardy-esque pose:: Those stupid Angels beat out my precious Sox! Go Twins!

I don't buy into this whole "Twins are a team of destiny" thing at all. If anything, I think the ANGELS are a team of destiny! We're playing for the memory of Cowboy Gene Autry! And we won't let the Twinkies stand in our way!
This is all on the road to the World Series, where we'll hopefully meet up with the St. Louis Cardinals. I'm intrigued at the thought of Jim Edmonds and Chuck Finley coming back to Anaheim for the first time since they were traded.

Wow, I remember the last time the Twinkies were this good. I was one year removed from my home state of Minnesota. That was a fun World Series, even if I had to watch it in another state. I need one that will stick in the memory a bit more.

Im a Twins fan and think they are indeed a team of destiny. Keep in mind they havent lost a playoff series in 30 years. I'd love to see that weasel Selig have to present the trophy to the team he tried to get rid of. Maybe MLB can contract his Brewers.
And I think the NL team will get the home field advantage in the Wordl series.

I don't know, I'd think more people would care about San Fran-Anaheim or Minnesota-St. Louis than cared about New York-New York in '00. A change of scenery is good; witness the R*ms/Titans Super Bowl of a couple years ago that was higher rated than the past couple years.

The Rams were being touted as the greatest show on earth and had media mega-stars Warner and Faulk. Tough to compare that.
There are more Yankees fans than you think. Will West Coast games start at 7:30 ET or PT? Makes a HUGE difference in TV viewership.

I would think that the entire controversy over the possible contracting of the Minnesota Twins would push up ratings - especially if the Twins take the Series and make both Selig and Pohlad look like jackasses.
Now Selig says that he will come out of Pohlad's private skybox and sit in the crowd should the Twins reach the World Series. He had better bring bodyguards and a suit of armor.

The Twins are this year's Cinderella story. A bunch of no name punks who are fighting authority and playing a good game. That'll draw. I know there are a lot of Yankee's fans. I live in Madison, WI, and 50% of the people I know are Yankee's fans. But if I were to ask them who they'd like to see win the Series now, most of them would say the Twins.
