I don't like "too early power rankings" like the one linked below, given that a lot can happen this offseason. Also, baseball is weird.
But, this one is particularly annoying.
He has the Twins listed 19th. And then he called the season "a little bit of a fluke."
One thing about the Twins' 2017 season was this: It was NOT a fluke.
The Twins won 85 games. They had a +27 run differential. Based on that, they would have won ... maybe 83 games. Winning two more games than your run differential hardly qualifies as a fluke.
Sure, the pitching was iffy. But the lineup was not iffy. And the defense was not iffy. The Twins were a legitimate, 85-win team in 2017. Were they world beaters? Absolutely not. Were they somewhat lucky to make the playoffs? Yes. But they were certainly not a fluke.
