For those who are living under a rock, the Twins beat the Tigers in 12 innings, after going through a combined 13 pitchers (8 by the Twins). Can you believe Leyland stayed with Rodney for 4 innings? Is he borderline insane? I guess it doesn't matter if his arm falls off tomorrow as their season is now over.
So the Yankees will play the Twins tomorrow, starting at 6:07 pm. Match-up looks to be Brian Duensing (5-2, 3.64) against C.C. Sabathia (19-8, 3.37).
News also broke today that A.J Burnett will be pitching game 2, along with Pettitte pitching the 3rd game. Not sure how I feel about that however we will see how it goes. The thing I am not thrilled with is that Burnett now has his own personal catcher, which i hope isn't the case if the Yankees need to play a 5th game. Taking Posada's bat out of the lineup and adding in Molina's for 2 games, is too many.
