2. I'd be happy if they are within 2 games from the top of the Division. I don't care much about their record...
I have the opposite perspective on absolute vs. relative records early in the season. I agree it'd be nice if the Twins were within 2 games of the division lead three weeks from now, but I'd rather see them win some games. I'll judge how good the team is relative to other teams based upon how many games they win against other teams, not how well they keep pace with Detroit. If the other teams in the AL Central all had crappy records and the Twins managed to go 6-14 over their next twenty games, but still be within two games of first place, I wouldn't be happy.
