The Surprising Twins

We're firmly in June and our favorite baseball team is in first place in the AL North.  No, the lead isn't big, and the lineup has holes aplenty, but this team has been fun to watch.  Specifically:

  • The defense has been off the charts.  The speed in the outfield, in particular, is worth the price of admission.
  • Sano is already damn near the best third baseman the franchise ever had.  Gary Gaetti, watch your butt
  • With Santana and Berrios, the Twins have the best one-two starting pitching punch since I don't know how long.  
I know it's a long season and there is a lot of baseball yet to play, however one cannot argue with the entertainment this team is putting out there on the field on nearly a daily basis.
