    Armadillo: Tuesday's six-pack

    Odds to win the World Series:

    50-1- Minnesota

    30-1- Colorado

    14-1- Arizona, New York

    10-1- Washington, Chicago

    9-1- Boston

    6-1- Houston

    5-2- Los Angeles

    9-4- Cleveland


    **********

    Armadillo: Tuesday's List of 13: Nobody asked me, but……..

    13) Atlanta Braves’ general manager John Coppolella, who built baseball’s top-rated farm system, has quit amid an investigation into whether the Braves were weasels with the international signing rules.

    Coppolella had the job for two years; he is the third executive to get into trouble in recent years. GM in San Diego has been suspended twice for his refusal to play by the rules. Someone in St Louis went to prison for four years in a corporate hacking scandal– he hacked the Astros’ computer system to gain information on the amateur draft. Oy.

    12) Oakland Raiders’ QB Derek Carr is out 2-6 weeks with a broken bone in his back. Backup QB EJ Manuel lost his last five NFL starts- his last win as an NFL starter was in 2014.

    11) Howard Schultz used to be the CEO of Starbucks and also owned the Seattle Sonics of the NBA; he is really rich. Schultz went to college at Northern Michigan, where he was the backup QB of the football team.

    Starting QB of that team? Former 49ers/Lions’ coach Steve Mariucci, who now works on the NFL Network.

    10) Chicago Bears are starting rookie QB Mitch Trubisky Monday night against Minnesota; he will become the 4th rookie QB who was drafted in the first round to make his debut on Monday Night Football. The first three:

    1988— Jim Harbaugh
    2006— Philip Rivers
    2008— Aaron Rodgers

    9) Over their first four games, Green Bay has started three different left tackles, three different right tackles, yet they’re 3-1. Very unusual turnover at that position, even more unusual for a team with that kind of turnover to be 3-1.

    8) If Louisville fires its athletic director Tom Jurich, a clause kicks in for Louisville football coach Bobby Petrino, which could make it easier for him to leave the school.

    Petrino’s buyout to leave Louisville gets cut in half if Jurich is no longer the AD. Cardinals will probably be hiring a new basketball coach next spring; they don’t want to be hiring a new football coach, too.

    7) Pablo Sandoval hit a walk-off homer for the Giants Sunday; that win cost the Giants’ the #1 pick in next June’s draft. Detroit Tigers get it, instead.

    6) Good time to be the agent for Twins’ manager Paul Molitor; he doesn’t have a contract for 2018. Cha-ching!$!$!$!$!

    No team had ever made the playoffs after losing 97+ games the year before; Minnesota lost 103 games last season. Molitor is going to get a nice contract this winter.

    5) In 2015, Miami Marlins thought so highly of pitching development expert Jim Benedict that they traded right-handed pitcher Trevor Williams to Pittsburgh for him; now Marlins’ new CEO Derek Jeter has already fired Benedict, while Williams is 7-9, 4.07 in 25 starts for the Pirates this year.

    4) Glenn Johnson has been the PA guy for Washington State football for 38 years; he is a professor at the school. He is also the 4-term mayor of Pullman, Washington. Going to take several people to replace him when he decides to retire.

    3) Fantasy baseball is interesting/weird; last winter, I had to cut a guy to get my roster down from 26 to 25 players, which we do every winter.

    The guy I cut was Mark Reynolds, who wasn’t expected to start for the Colorado Rockies this year— this wasn’t a difficult decision, there was a thought he would wind up on a different team.

    Because of injuries to Ian Desmond/David Dahl, Reynolds made the ballclub in the spring and wound up playing first base the whole year, hitting 30 homers with 97 RBI. Whoops.

    2) Paradise Jam college basketball tournament will be moved from the Virgin Islands to the campus of Liberty U in Lynchburg, VA this fall, because of the hurricane damage in the Virgin Islands.

    1) If you read this space a lot, you know I go on vacation in Las Vegas a few times a year; I love it there. Excellent place to visit, lot of great people, always fun stuff to do.

    Was so sad Sunday night to see the carnage after a 64-year old guy lost his mind and started firing on an outdoor concert from the 32nd floor in the Mandalay Bay hotel, a place I’ve stayed- a terrific place, a very fun place.

    Life is short; hug your loved ones and try to enjoy every day.

    American League Wild Card playoff preview and odds: Twins at Yankees

    The Yankees have won 11 straight season series over the Twins, posting a 55-23 head-to-head record in that span.

    Minnesota Twins at New York Yankees (A: +220, H: -250, Total: 7.5)

    The New York Yankees have traditionally dominated the Minnesota Twins in the postseason and hope to continue that trend when the teams meet Tuesday night in the American League Wild Card Game at Yankee Stadium. New York defeated Minnesota in the AL Division Series in 2003, 2004, 2009 and 2010, claiming 12 of 14 contests in that span.

    This encounter will be the first taste of October for the Yankees' "Baby Bombers," putting MVP candidate Aaron Judge - who led the AL in homers (52) and walks (127) - on a big stage in the Bronx that has played host to many legends. "This is what it's all about," Judge told reporters Monday. "This is where a lot of those numbers that are hanging out there in left field (Monument Park), this is where they made a name for themselves, in the postseason." The Twins authored one of the great turnarounds in baseball history by going from 59 wins in 2016 to 85 this season, but they must overcome the pressure of past postseason failures, having lost 12 straight playoff games and 19 of their last 21 dating to the 2002 ALCS. Ervin Santana, who is 0-5 with a 6.43 ERA in six career starts at Yankee Stadium, gets the start for Minnesota opposite New York ace Luis Severino.

    TV:
    8 p.m. ET, ESPN

    INJURY REPORT:


    Twins - RP J.T. Chargois (Out For Season, Elbow), SP Hector Santiago (Out For Season, Back), SP Phil Hughes (Out For Season, Shoulder), RP Trevor May (Out For Season, Elbow), RP Ryan O’Rourke (Out For Season, Elbow).

    Yankees - SP Luis Cessa (Out For Season, Ribs), SP Michael Pineda (Out For Season, Elbow).

    PITCHING MATCHUP:
    Ervin Santana, Minnesota Twins (16-8, 3.28 ERA, $ 407) vs. Luis Severino, New York Yankees (14-6, 2.98 ERA, $495)

    Santana led the AL in shutouts (three) and complete games (five) in an All-Star campaign in which he posted the second-lowest ERA of his 13-year-career. The 34-year-old finished the regular season with three straight road starts, including a tough loss at Yankee Stadium in which he allowed two runs and seven hits in 5 2/3 innings. Judge went deep in that one against Santana, who owns a 5.66 ERA in 20 career starts versus New York, his highest mark against an AL team.

    Severino finished his breakout regular season by going 3-0 with a 2.10 ERA in five September starts, during which he allowed 15 hits and struck out 38 in 30 dominant innings. The one outlier in that stretch was a three-inning, three-run outing against Minnesota on Sept. 20, when the 23-year-old was pulled following a 46-pitch third inning. That was the only career meeting with the Twins for Severino, who was 8-5 with a 3.71 ERA at home this year.

    TRENDS:


    * Twins are 0-5 in their last 5 playoff road games.

    * Yankees are 13-3 in their last 16 home games.

    * Yankees are 13-3 in Luis Severino’s last 16 starts.

    * Under is 5-1 in Twins last 6 playoff games.

    * Under is 7-1 in Yankees last 8 playoff home games.

    * Under is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings.

    CONSENSUS:
    The public is siding with the home chalk Bombers at a rate of 68 percent and the Over is picking up 55 percent of the totals action.
