I know it's early, and this thread is usually Chief's domain, but I wanted to get this one in while I could:

As of today the Twins lead the AL in runs scored....

After 6 games, the Twins have four players with an OPS over 1.000. None of them are named Mauer or Willingham.

This was the first series win the Twins had since Sept 3rd 2013..vs the Astros.
This was the first series win at Cleveland since Sept 17th 2012.

The old adage is to win your home games, and split on the road.

This would put the Twins on a pace to finish about 120-40. :)

Couple rainouts, not made up because those two games are immaterial to the final standings?

During the baseball season my blood pressure numbers are Himalayan vs. Appalachian in the off season. To me that is sad with numbers.:(

There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. Some kind of high powered mutant never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Either that, or I was thinking the Yankees might forfeit a couple times.

Through 4/12, Trevor Plouffe has the best 3b range factor in the AL per BB Ref.

We all looked at Jason Bartlett's March and then chuckled and/or gnashed our teeth over his .250 OPS in 3 ABs.

Pedro Florimon currently has a .233 OPS, which is good for a -30 OPS+.

And on the shortstops' page, Eduardo Escobar has a better RF/9 than Pedro Florimon.

Through 11 regular season games, the Kansas City Royals have one home run as a team.

One.

That is currently good for a 1:356 HR/AB ratio.

Jamey Carroll's career HR/AB ratio is 1:282.

Here is some fun with 2014 numbers: Plouffe is on pace for 120 walks, which would be 10 more walks than he has in his MLB career (across 4 seasons).

Jason Tyner and Al Newman are scoring their fingers, hoping to be the next comp you come up with.

For a hot minute there, Brian Dozier was leading the league in home runs. (Then Bautista happened.)

And by the way, your league leader in RBI is STILL Chris Colabello.

Speaking of Dozier, he has 12 hits, but has scored 18 runs, most in MLB.

After 15 games, the Twins lead the AL in runs per game and walks per game.

Fun fact: If the season ended right now...the Twins would be in the playoffs.

Kurt Suzuki trails Trout and Jete in OBP by a mere .005 (.380 vs. .375).
Kube is all over the top 10 on the AL leader board;
Plouffe is top 10 in OBP;
Cola stands a good chance to crack 1.000 OPS, and leads the AL in RBI;
Dozier leads the AL in HR... must lead MLB in leadoff HR.

Nutty. Bonkers.
Loving it for as long as it lasts... how long will that be?
Feel free to pile on about Suzuki.

Yep, and he's building his lead...four ahead now. Gonna have to keep it up to fight off Kurt Suzuki, though, because Kurt is tied for 6th just 6 RBI back.

On the negative side, anybody figure Joe Mauer would be 5th in the league in K's after 3 weeks?

Kubel - 27

The Twins are currently tops in the AL in OBP at .348, and yet (assuming the announcing last night was correct) 13 of their 16 homeruns have been solo shots.
