Also welcome back ajgnydc722. I noticed you weren't around much lately when the Sox were hot on the Yanks heels
Saw you over on the football side a lot though. I've been doing the same myself. Anyways, should be a fun next couple of weeks. See you in the ALCS, if we're both lucky enough to get there.
You have been one of the most idiotic posters here since you showed up, so don't call me clueless. How am I being a homer? By asking why exactly the Twins will crush the Yankees? Please, don't be an @$$.
Hmm, Johan Santana? Metrodome? I believe the Yankees faced both in last year's ALDS. Now obviously Santana has bigger status now, and he'll be harder to beat, but the Yankees have homefield advantage (which is arguabley the best homefield in the league). The Yankees offense is rolling right now as is Mike Mussina, who will counter Santana.
Comparing Johan Santana of 2004 to any other Johan Santana year is irrelevant. He's the best in the game today, and nobody else has been even close. Mussina has been great as of late (and he's on my fantasy team, so believe me I'm happy), but has still been inconsistent and is no Santana. The Yankees offense isn't "rolling", if they are how did they get only 2 hits against a nobody named David Bush last night?
Now don't give me crap about how the Twins will wreck the Yankees and how the Red Sox will breeze past the Angels, because Anaheim has the monster, Vladdy. Their bullpen is great and their lineup is on fire right now. Their pitching isn't too shabby either. Sounds kinda like the 2002 Angels when they won it all. But of course that wouldn't matter to you Boston fans, because it's the year of the Sox, right?
Personally, I believe that the Angels and Sox are a toss-up if they face each other, as are the Twins and Yankees. However, I believe the Twins have the edge because Santana can start games 1 and 4/5, and all they need is a good outing from Radke or Silva. Those three pitchers are all in the top 7 of BB/9, so you know that they're not going to make many mistakes. IMO, Radke is the X-Factor here, because if he has one good start, they pretty much win.
Don't make me laugh. To say the Yankees are going to get wrecked and not say a word about YOUR opponent who is just as if not more dangerous than Minnesota, is being more of a homer than I've been. I don't believe I've said anything to be a homer here. Did I say the Yankees will dominate the Twins or that Minny has no chance? Hell no. I've learned my lessons about underdogs after watching Anaheim and Florida beat me two years in a row. All I asked was how you can tell me that the Twins will wreck the Yankees and meanwhile seem happy about only having to worry about the Angels.
In response to SoxFantatic001, I don't know how much more of a shaky staff the Yankees have compared to that of the Red Sox. Schilling has been the only rock in your rotation, and Mussina has done so for us for a while. Pedro has lost what? His last 4 starts and looks less than impressive in each of them. Not to mention some remarks that are not Pedro-like (the Yankees are my daddy). Derek Lowe has been as much or more of a joke than Vazquez has, and if Brown pitches like he did today, he's ready to go too.
Brown also had his worst start of his career two starts ago, and Lowe/Vazquez cancel each other out. Pedro is still Pedro, and can dominate when he's on; he was in cold weather the last time he pitched NYY and is usually not good in the cold. Schilling is the only rock in either Boston or NYY's rotation.
The Yankees have shaky pitching, but so does everyone in the playoffs. However, the Yankees have the most explosive lineup. There is no team that you can point to and say, their staff will shut the Yankees down. So therefore, I personally can't believe that the Yankees aren't going to go to the World Series because at this time, I don't see any main contender in the AL, but rather they are all close to eachother in terms of talent. Maybe the Yankees will be in the World Series, maybe they won't. But to say they are going to get wrecked by the Twins, and then say nothing about your Red Sox having to deal with the Angels, is just asanine.
Where did I mention your "contributions" to this site?

This will be my last post in response to your pathetic attempts to rebuttal my statements. Stupid douche bag
Shaky pitching? The Twins' staff is a rock. The other AL teams can dominate or bust, depending. I'd rate the Sox over the Yanks, and the Yanks over the Angels. I don't see the Yankees going to the World Series, but I do see an interesting trip for whoever gets there.

B. You claim I contradict myself by calling you a clueless homer and then saying you rim people. I hate to break it to you, but that isn't contradiction. Nice try though, it's always good to attempt to expand your vocabulary.
C. Yes, you were destroyed because your argument holds no merit.
Okay, now I'm really done.
