Even with a number of injuries to the pitching staff and regulars in the field, the Twins are playing at a 104 win pace over 162 games.

I don’t know where to post this, but does anyone know else stan Lamonte Wade? His plate approach is so valuable

The Twins reach their half way point, at 20-10.
He measured the achievements of others by what they had accomplished, asking of them that they measure him by what he envisaged or planned.

It was discovered that Madison Bumgarner rides in the rodeo competitively.

Miami infielder Eddy Alvarez was an Olympic speed skater.

Now, add Arizona outfielder Kole Calhoun to the list of two-sport stars:

If Dobnak wins tomorrow, he’ll be tied with Bieber for AL win leader with 6 wins.

Considering that Rocco has trusted Randy to go less deep into games on average than either Kenta or Jose, this is definitely a "fun with" kind of stat.
 

A mistake made more than once starts to look like a decision.

The Yankees' uniforms may still stop the Twins but the team they have put on the field lately should not.

Today's appearance was #725 in Sergio Romo's career, 90th all time in MLB history.

For a dude about five nine who weighs a buck sixty, even more impressive.

The top three teams for run differential in the AL are all from the Central Division. Cleveland, Chicago and the Twins.

Here's a fun one: The Twins currently have the 7th best record in baseball, but are in position to clinch the playoffs as a 7 seed. It's pretty unlucky that the Twins are in the division with two of the six better teams, especially since there's only 2 NL teams that have a better record.

The good news is that the Twins control their own destiny. If they can win 4-5 of the next seven games, they will be in position to get a much higher seed, especially given that they then would have the tiebreaker edge on one or both of the other playoff contenders in the division.

At this point, the only thing likely in play is batting at the end of the game. It appears MLB will play the postseason at neutral sites, making seeding close to worthless.

That's true... though for some reason the Twins are 18-5 in home games this year!

I’ve been reading that the best-of-three opening series will be played at the higher seed. It would be nice for the Twinsvto host that series. It is in their hands. Wine 4 or 5 of seven against the White Sox and Cleveland should move them up and also hold the tiebreaker against either team.

That was the original idea, but it seems more likely by the day they will play the postseason in neutral sites in CA and TX.
