The Twins are on Fire!

Did you know? The Twins are 40-16 since the All-Star break.
The starters have gone 29-10 in that stretch. One of those a spot start by Glen Perkins.
The starters lead the league with a 2.26 ERA in 12 September starts.
Brian Fuentes has yet to give up a base runner.
Jesse Crain has been arguably the best reliever in the AL since June.
There is also Joe Mauer and Jim Thome.....
They've won 9 of their last 10.
They haven't lost by more than 2 runs in 19 games.
They have allowed the second fewest runs in the A.L.
They are 7 games ahead of Chicago with 18 to go.
They are 1.5 games behind the Yankees for the best record in all of baseball.
Their 48-23 home record is the best in the major leagues, the way they are playing, they will have home field advantage until the World Series.

Other than Justin Morneau, the team is now fully healthy.

There are no guarantees in the playoffs but, this Twins team is not like the others. This is a special team. With 18 games to go, fans should start enjoying it!
