Can Twins take advantage of Yanks' weakness?


It's About the Money and Nick's Twins Blog have teamed up to preview the Yankees-Twins Division Series, and here's one bit of their latest installment:



Gee, this doesn't sound real good for the Twins, does it? When their key hitter might, in four of five games, be Delmon Young?

As somebody somewhere pointed out, the Twins were a really good offensive club this season ... except roughly half their goodness derived from Justin Morneau's incredible first half. Without Morneau, the Twins' attack is just decent.

The Yankees' weak underbelly is obviously their starting pitching, other than CC Sabathia. It's not at all clear that the Twins are well-equipped to take advantage.
