Before he took the mound in Yankee Stadium Tuesday night, Ervin Santana, the Twins’ wild card game starter, did his best to shake off how much he doesn’t really like Yankee Stadium. Anyone who doesn’t believe in miracles,” the veteran tweeted, “is not a realist.”
Oh, boy, did reality bite. Hard.
Someone should have reminded Santana of the admonition of Jesus Christ: “Judge not, that ye not be judged.” Or, Judged, as the case turned out to be for the Twins as they went home for the winter on an 8-4 loss.
