Is this how good the playoffs will be?

by Chris Allen

What a tremendous end to the regular season with Carlos Gomez sliding in safe in the bottom of the twelfth to eliminate the Tigers. The same Tigers who were up seven games only two weeks ago. What happened Detroit? It's unbelievable to me that they could not win the division with so little time left. It's almost Mets-esque!
Detroit had plenty of chances to win this game, they were ahead in the seventh and tenth innings. Their starting pitcher, Porcello, looked great. The botched play by Reaburn in the tenth that led to a lead off triple was a killer for them. Also when the Twins' pitchers got in trouble and had the bases loaded a couple times they escaped without giving up any runs. The Tigers played good enough to win but they couldn't close the deal.
So what do the Twins have to look forward to? Will they even win a game versus New York? They demolished their bullpen to just to get this opportunity. When they start the playoffs Wednesday night in New York they will either be all buzzed up on adrenaline still or completely exhausted. Perhaps they can carry this late season surge and translate it to some postseason success. The Twins have lost 11 of their last 12 in New York. Ouch.
