Yankees have struggled in playoffs against non-Twins teams

8 Comments

I’m a Minnesotan and so it has seemed at times like the Yankees are unbeatable in the playoffs, but it turns out they haven’t been so good when they’re not beating up on the Twins.

During the past 10 seasons the Yankees’ playoff record is 12-2 against the Twins and 26-34 against all other teams.

In terms of series, the Yankees are 4-0 versus the Twins and 3-8 versus everyone else.

New Yorkers should probably join me in rooting for the Twins to turn things around in 2012.
