Enemy Intel Report

Having briefly been the Wild Card lead in the middle of this past week, the Twins now find themselves 2.5 games out after the White Sox stunned the Tigers by sweeping them. We'll see if the Twins can manage to regain their form this week.

Minnesota Twins
Off Day (Mon)
3 games vs. Cleveland (Tue-Thu)
3 games vs. Chicago White Sox (Fri-Sun)

Detroit Tigers
3 games @ Boston (Mon-Wed)
4 games vs. Texas (Thu-Sun)

Chicago White Sox
4 games vs. Kansas City (Mon-Thu)
3 games @ Minnesota (Fri-Sun)

New York Yankees
1 game vs. Los Angeles Angels (Mon)
3 games vs. Baltimore (Tue-Thu)
4 games @ Boston (Fri-Sun)

Boston Red Sox
3 games vs. Detroit (Mon-Wed)
Off Day (Thu)
4 games vs. New York Yankees (Fri-Sun)

What a week; pretty much make-it or break-it for the Red Sox, who battle the Tigers and Yankees. The Yankees series will include a 5th game on Monday, but what a brutal stretch for the Sox. This will also be a test for the Tigers, who have lost 5 straight games against the Twins and White Sox. Can they rebound, or will the Red Sox give the White Sox and Twins hope of catching the once-surging Tigers?

For the Twins, it's essential to take 2-of-3 from the Indians and White Sox both. Anything less is likely to push them further away from the Wild Card lead.
