I'm picking the Twins. My fav team... plus, you just can't vote on a team that was suspose to be down and out but came storming back and slapped Bud right back in the face. Take another whacking, Mr. Commissioner.

No way I can vote against the three-headed pitching monster in Oakland. Plus, Tejada, Chavez, and a lot of hitting power there. A's in three.

I say the Twins get to the A's bullpen once in Oakland, turn the Metrodome into homefield advantage and pull off the upset.

Depends who you are to call it an upset I'm in the minority on this one.

Im picking the A's,

They've had solid pitching this year and Tejada is awesome. This should be a close series but I pick the A's to win here.

I'm taking the A's, although I've been a Twins fan since 1961. If the A's don't win the first 2 in Oakland, the Twins will upset them, as they don't lose at home.
A's in 5.

I've got the A's in four, but its going to be a low-scoring, good series.

Whoever said "sweep" and "A's," as well as "low-scoring" are ALL WRONG!! Haha, the Twins spotted the A's 4 runs thanks to 3 erros but came back and won 7-5 today. Sweetness -- a gauranteed split in Oakland and then the need to win 1 out of 2 at home after winning Game 2

Still one game

A's still win the series IMO, Zito will take the next game.

Then TSN must have made a error,

I see it says Mulder is making the start. I still don't think the A's are going to lose.
