The First Step to 1932 in 2017

Despite the phenomenal success of the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Houston Astros and the Cleveland Indians, all winning over 100 games this season, 

I'm sticking with my preseason picks
for the 2017 World Series:  Cubs vs. Yankees.
That quest begins tonight in the American League Wild Card game, the Minnesota Twins @ the New York Yankees.

Ervin Santana, 16-8, on the mound for the Twins, and Luis Serverino wearing the pinstripes, at 14-6 on the season.

There are just TOO many indicators to list here, as to why the Bombers will win and advance to play the Indians:

But first MUST be Aaron Judge, the most incredible baseball specimen to grace the game in over 60 years-- 52 Home runs and 114 RBIs, as a rookie ~! 
(BOTH, MLB Records);
the always dependable manager Joe Girardi; the Yankee pitching staff & relievers...  

It's just a matter of time, until it's 1932 all over again~
and in two weeks, Aaron Judge will probably point out
a World Series homer, ala the BABE~

**  Babe Ruth's called shot was the home run hit by Ruth in the fifth inning of Game 3 of the 1932 World Series, held on October 1, 1932, at Wrigley Field in Chicago. During the at-bat, Ruth made a pointing gesture, which existing film confirms, but the exact meaning of his gesture remains ambiguous. Although neither fully confirmed nor refuted, the story goes that Ruth pointed to the center-field bleachers during the at-bat. It was allegedly a declaration that he would hit a home run to this part of the park. On the next pitch, Ruth hit a home run to center field. The home run was his fifteenth, and last, in his 41 post-season games. It was said to be one of the greatest home runs in history.

I'll be watching the game, rooting for the Yankees, in an ironic twist of events~
