The Minnesota Twins took a big step forward in 2019, but there are still a few things they can learn from the teams in this year’s World Series

By most accounts, the Minnesota Twins had a solid season in 2019. By setting an MLB record for home runs and winning 101 games, the Twins went from a team far out of the playoff picture to one contending for an American League pennant. Unfortunately, those dreams of heading to the World Series for the first time since 1991 came to a screeching halt thanks to a sweep at the hands of the New York Yankees.

While the Twins could admire the steps they’ve taken since losing a franchise-record 103 games three years ago, there’s also the matter of upgrading the team they have and taking it to the World Series.

In order to do that, the Twins can simply look at the teams that made it to the Fall Classic and learn from them. Both the Astros and Nationals have had their share of lean seasons and have felt the sting of coming up just short from their goal of making it to the World Series.

The Twins already have a talented roster and with a couple of tweaks, they could find themselves in the same position that the Astros and Nationals are right now. In this article, we’ll take a look at what both teams learned and how it can help the Twins moving ahead into the offseason.
