The Minnesota Twins are pushing toward their first division title in nine years, but several questions must be answered if they want to claim the AL Central.
For the first time in nearly a decade, the Minnesota Twins are heading into an important month of September. Although they have faced big games in the season’s final month in 2015 and 2017 as part of a chase for a wild card spot, this year feels different with the Twins having a legitimate chance to win the American League Central division.
Entering Sunday’s finale in Detroit, the Twins owned a 4 1/2 game lead over the Cleveland Indians in the division and with six games remaining with The Tribe, the Twins will be doing their best not to look over their shoulder in September. Of course, that will mean taking care of their own business which could have some ups and downs within itself.
Between now and the regular-season finale on Sept. 29 in Kansas City, there are plenty of questions that will be answered and several more that could determine if the Twins capture the division for the first time since 2010 or miss the playoffs altogether.
