There are clearly some pros and cons to playing the Minnesota Twins.
They have the best player in the league catching for them.
After going 0-7 this year, perhaps they're due. The Yankees certainly were after starting 0-8 vs. Boston.
They certainly have momentum (which is only worth as much as the next day's starter). They're 17-4 in their last 21 games.
The Twins are a better road team (38-43 vs. 35-47) and a better overall team than Detroit: they have a +52 run differential. Detroit was -2.
The road to 11 starts tomorrow at 6 p.m.
