The first-place Twins, sporting the second best record in the major leagues - whoa. Have I stumbled into some inter-dimensional vortex?

Evidently not. The Twins have played .625 ball so far,  They've got the third best offence in the league and they're also better than the average team at keeping the other guys from scoring.  Everybody in the lineup has been hitting except the two corner infielders, and those two guys - C.J. Cron and Marwin Gonzalez - have hit before and are likely to hit again. Three starting pitchers - Perez, Berrios, and Odorizzi - have been really good, and the Jays will bump into two of those guys.


Mon 6 May - Perez (4-0, 3.41) vs Stroman (1-4, 2.2)
Tue 7 May - Berrios (5-1, 2.91) vs Sanchez (3-2, 3.09)
Wed 8 May - Gibson (2-1, 4.68) vs Thornton (0-3, 4.08)

Is Brito still on the team? When will our long national nightmare be over? For the answer to these and other questions...
