Yankees -Twins: AL Wild Card Game preview

"No matter where his stats are, bounce-back year, good years, bad years, he always gets on base".

Bird is an interesting choice, especially because he missed so much of the regular season with an ankle injury that ultimately required surgery. After a Cy Young-contending start to the season, Santana regressed during the warmer summer months.

Joe Mauer is playing great at first and shows he deserves a Gold Glove, being one of few to win a Gold Glove at more than one position.

After getting some offseason tips from Hall of Famer Pedro Martinez, Severino finished third in the American League in ERA, placed fourth in strikeouts, third in hits per nine innings (6.98) and fourth in strikeouts per nine innings (10.51).

"He's been dominant", Aaron Judge said. "But you look at the bigger picture I think it's paid off". Sometimes having no one believing in you can be just the right thing to help you get the job done! "He just dominates hitters". Luis Severino pitches for the Yanks - he's 23, he averaged 97.6 miles per hour on his fastball, tops among qualified starters. Additionally, Severino has been almost unhittable during the last month of the season, posting a 2-0 record along with a 2.63 ERA, 0.79 WHIP, and 10.9 K/9.

"My changeup was a big step this year", he said. "And you want your fans to experience and celebrate a home game", Levine said.

With the Yankees' deep and effective bullpen, Severino figures to have a short leash, but Joe Girardi said that won't necessarily be the case. "They would have been shocked if they would have lost to the Twins back then", ESPN's Buster Olney said Monday.

"These guys have been through a lot this year, and I think even the guys that maybe even this is their first go-round, they're way better off than they were at the start of the year and what some of these guys endured last year, too", said Molitor.

The Yanks will be throwing right-handed pitcher, Luis Severino (14-8, 2.98 ERA) against Minnesota's right hander Ervin Santana (16-8, 3.28 ERA). In a loss at the Stadium Sept. 18, Santana allowed two runs and seven hits in 5 2⁄3 innings.

MLB betting pick, via OddsShark computer: 5.5-1.5, Yankees (MLB picks on every game).

After a remarkable regular season that saw the Twins win 85 games and secure a playoff berth, Minnesota heads to NY to once again attempt to vanquish the Yankees in the playoffs.

Adding a wild-card team has been a success, as the Twins, their six-year postseason drought finally over thanks to the extra berth.
