Now that’s a way to start the postseason.

What a rally by the Twins, who took full advantage of a Tigers team that should have locked up the division a week ago and then won one of the best elimination games you’ll ever see.

If you’re a Yankees fan, here’s what’s good: The Twins probably won’t get to New York until sometime early tomorrow morning; they’ve burned a ton of pitchers and will be using a bullpen that’s basically in pieces; their best player, Joe Mauer, just caught 12 innings of high-pressure baseball and will sit on a plane for three hours before getting to sleep.

Here’s what’s bad: The Twins are the hottest team in baseball; they’ve got karma, momentum, mojo or whatever you want to call it on their side (how many times did Detroit look like they’d won it?); they’ve got – gasp! – Carl Pavano.

UPDATE, 9:56 p.m.: TBS just said that Brian Duensing is the Twins Game 1 starter. His stats are here.
