From the St. Paul Pioneer Press -
[Twins Owner] Pohlad said he has no preference as to which team — the New York Yankees or Oakland A’s — his Twins face in the first round of the playoffs next week. Then he paused.
“I’d rather play the Yankees,” he said, “because I know we can beat them.”
Privately, there is no club Pohlad would rather beat than George Steinbrenner’s Yankees.
“That’s right,” he whispered.
Careful what you wish for there, old-timer. Be very careful.
