NY Daily News writer on the Twins-Yankees seriesby Tom Crann, Minnesota Public Radio
St. Paul, Minn. — Whether you're a baseball fan or not, you've probably heard that the Minnesota Twins and the New York Yankees will face-off again in this year's American League Playoffs.
While that match-up hasn't favored the Twins in the last decade, this time the Yankees are the wildcard team and the Twins are division champs. And, along with a new ballpark and revitalized fans, the Twins have home-field advantage.
Now, if you think that makes the Yankees the underdogs, New Yorkers have a different idea. Yesterday's sports page in the New York Daily News made the Twins seem like a routine formality for the Bronx Bombers -- "EZ Pass" was the big headline.
Sportswriter Anthony McCarron joined All Things Considered host Tom Crann from Minneapolis. McCarron covers the Yankees for the New York Daily News.
