The Perfect Shut Your Month Series Sweep

They (the so-called "experts") said we couldn't win this series.  They broke it down and claimed:

The Twins had a better starting rotation  (Oakland starters 2-0, Twins 0-2)
The Twins had a better bullpen (Oakland pen: 2 runs, 8IP Twins pen: 8 runs, 8IP)
The Twins had a better line up (Oakland runs: 16, Twins runs: 7)
The Twins had a better defense (Oakland errors:  1, Twins errors: 5)
The Twins had a better home field (Oakland, 1-0 at home, Twins 0-2)
The A's hadn't won a play off series in 16 years (we SWEEP series where we never trailed)

So if you work at ESPN and you're name isn't:

Peter Gammons
Buster Olney
Steve Phillips
Gary Gillette or
Bob Klapisch

SHUT THE HELL UP

As for those of you who wanted Detroit?  Well, I'm not going to speak ill of fellow A's fans on such a joyous day, but HAVE SOME FAITH.

BRING ON THE YANKS.  Cause The Oakland Revenge Tour '06 has officially begun
