The Twins passed Colorado and are now ranked third in MLB. Cleveland, however, is right behind the Twins in the Race For #1. Personally, I like their chances better.
The Twins have a respectable 20-32 record in the second half, but aren’t getting it done in the division with a 26-27 record. Additionally, they’re just handing third place to the Indians with a 7-4 mark against them this year. The Indians are two games behind the Twins and have a four game series. I see them tying, if not outright taking the lead, by Monday night.
Finally, the Twins take on Kansas City after while Cleveland heads to Texas. The Twins have a ridiculous record of 10-5 against the hapless Royals while the Indians have split against Texas in six games so far. I just see no way the Twins retain third place and wouldn’t be surprised to see them drop to fifth, behind Colorado once again.
