I know 1/4th season but how about our Twins? Most pleasant surprise?
They're 27-15, a nifty .643 winning percentage, the best record in the majors. Creighton, I mean Toronto Blue Jays in a three-game series last weekend, winning by scores of 8-0, 3-0 and 9-1. 9W-6L against the Astros, Yankees, Angels and Indians.
Twinkies bashed an average of two home runs per game, including Eddie Rosario's, the most HR in the American League. It's as if they're fielding an entire lineup of Harmon Killebrews, and pitching like an entire staff of Greg Maddux type. Plus very good on defense and bullpen has been solid. The closer, Blake Parker, sparkling 1.17 ERA.
GO TWINS ! Die hard Twins fan since early '60s and the first MLB attendees (The Met)
Three teams hit at least 50 HRs in May. My poor man Twins, best record in MLB, got 56 and money talk franchises, Cubbies (51) & Red Sox (51) marking the first time in history that three teams have reached that mark in the same month. Minnesota had nine players with at least four homers during the month to set a major league record. Oh yeah.
