You want to crown em?

The Twins are 8-3

I had the Twins being a big deal in 2010 here, and through 11 games they are looking pretty damn good. I'm not ready to crown their asses yet but.....

The team does lead the league in runs scored and fewest runs allowed. The fielding has been excellent.

The middle of the lineup has been fantastic so far.
Joe Mauer is hitting .324/.435/.541
Justin Morneau is hitting .341/.471/.512
Michael Cuddyer is hitting .348/.380/.522
Jason Kubel is hitting .258/.410/.484
Delmon Young is hitting .300/.324/.567

Backup 3b Brendan Harris is hitting .250/.438/.500

The starting pitching has been great:
Carl Pavano is 2-0 .85 WHIP 1.38 ERA
Francisco Liriano is 1-0 1.15 WHIP 2.08 ERA
Scott Baker is 2-1 1.13 WHIP 3.38 ERA

Pat Neshek, Matt Guerrier and Jon Rauch have been great out of the bull-pen.

The Twins are 5-2 on the road.
The Twins are 7-3 vs. prospective contenders.
The Twins beat last years Cy Young tonight 10-3. (The game could have been much worse if not for some great plays by the Royals in the field)

It may be early, sample sizes are small, but there is a lot to like so far.

.....And, the 1-2 hitters are just starting to hit....
