With the Minnesota Twins on pace for a hundred wins for the first season since 1965, it’s time to look back at some of the greatest Twins and Senators teams of all time.
The Minnesota Twins are on their way to winning exactly one hundred games, a mark that has only been hit once in the franchise’s 118-year history back in 1965.
