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.

The Twins are the only American League team with 3 players scoring 10+ runs (Dozier, Mauer, Plouffe)

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?

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.

Last night Washington had 16 hits, but somehow found a way to go 0-16 with RISP.

Kyle Gibson's swinging strike percentage is 5.5%.

Holy moly. I knew it was bad. I didn't expect it to be on the level of a pitching machine.

After today, Danny Santana is on pace to be on the roster for 11 games, and on pace for zero starts, and zero plate appearances.

But hey, he is taking some practice reps in the OF!

Come on now, knock that off. He couldn't get those types of practice reps in AAA and everyone knows that. When Molly hits me, they are soooo game-like.

Aaron Hicks has an ugly slash line of .178/.315/.260 for an OPS of .575, which is...wait for it...223 points better than Pedro Florimon.

I'm having a tough time seeing the 'fun' parts in here. Maybe a new title is in order.
