Can The Twins Keep This Going?
The Twins have won 7 straight games and are doing it with mostly a make-shift lineup. Twins fans would love to see this continue but without proven major leaguers it seems unlikely. If the Twins get players like Morneau, Thome, Kubel and Span back they should be fine. Alexi Casilla’s hot streak continues but past history tell us that will end.
Luke Hughes and Ben Revere are hitting well now but can they keep that up? The starting pitching has been saving the Twins for the past 3 weeks but can that continue? Carl Pavano and Nick Blackburn have had some bad stretches in the past and is this the real Scott Baker?
If the Twins continue to climb in the standings with this group Ron Gardenhire could position himself for another manager of year award.
