Cool but clear skies in Minnesota

When the Yankees were in Minneapolis last year for the American League Division Series, it snowed here. Good thing there was a roof on the Metrodome. This year there's no more roof -- Target Field is open air -- but the weather forecast appears to be cooperating.

Wednesday: 59 degrees and clear skies at 8:37 p.m. for Game 1 first pitch
Thursday: 63 degrees and clear skies at 6:07 p.m. for Game 2 first pitch

"People are concerned with the weather, we don't really worry about that," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "It is cold everywhere else, too. This time of year you start getting a little chilly, that's okay. But coming here, everything we have here from batting cages to, you know, the whirlpool, weights, everything is here for us.

"This is a ballpark and our fans love it. And we've enjoyed it, so it makes it a lot nicer coming to the ballpark. And it's ours. It's the Twins' fans ballpark and our ballpark and we don't share it with anybody and that's a good thing."
