The Minnesota Twins had a great week on their home stand and retired the number of a legend, but defensive woes could be a concern moving forward.
As far as home stands go, the Minnesota Twins are having a great one through six games. As part of their longest home stand of the season, the Twins retired the No. 7 jersey of Joe Mauer and took two-of-three games from the Seattle Mariners and the Kansas City Royals,
On the field, things continue to look great for the Twins. For the most part, Minnesota has gotten the clutch hit when they’ve needed it and the starting pitching continues to hold its own even if a starter or two has seen a bump in the road from a scorching start.
While there are concerns that could come back to bite the Twins later, life is good for now. After Sunday’s loss to the Royals, the Twins still own a ten-game lead in the American League Central and will look to extend that lead with another divisional series coming this weekend against the Royals in Kansas City.
The Twins are far from a finished product, but for now, it’s best for everyone to just sit back and enjoy the ride as they make the push to the All-Star break.
