Good evening folks and welcome to B/R’s live blog coverage of Game 1 of the ALDS clash between the New York Yankees and the Minnesota Twins. 

The Twins enter the playoffs in the unusual position of having home field advantage, but still widely being viewed as the underdogs in this divisional playoff series. 

We aren’t going to keep you long, and as we get closer to the first pitch, we’ll be bringing you plenty of updates on stats, big plays and of course, spot-on observations regarding what you may or may not be watching. 

Let’s get started, shall we?

Feel free to comment, ask questions, or tell me I’m an idiot in the comment section.
