This morning I recorded a Yankees-Twins series preview with Ted Berg for SNY and it’s a slow news day here at Hardball Talk, so why not watch it …
New York and Minnesota are tied for the second-best record in baseball at 22-12, so it should be a good series. I’m actually feeling oddly optimistic about the Twins’ chances despite their being 16-50 against the Yankees under Ron Gardenhire.
