The Twins are having a great season.  I feel like it's about time, too.  I'm not sure if it's the change in management, or if the players are just getting their groove on, or what the deal is... but I think it's time for fans to get on board and realize that this team is good.  I was hearing a lot of "oh, they are always good in the beginning... let's wait and see towards the all star break... blah blah blah".  Let's get on board, people!

This brings me to the home runs.  This is kind of awesome.  There are 7 MLB players that are on track to make 50 home runs this season and the Twins' Eddie Rosario is one of them.

Right now, Bellinger, Yelich, the Mets’ Pete Alonso, the Twins’ Eddie Rosario, the Pirates’ Josh Bell, the Yankees’ Gary Sanchez and the Reds’ Derek Dietrich are all on pace for at least 50. Dietrich — who probably works out — joined the group with a three-homer night on Tuesday to give him 17 for the season despite mostly serving in a platoon role. Two Astros hitters — Alex Bregman and George Springer, with 17 apiece — would be on pace for 50 if their team had played one fewer game, and Springer has missed eight games due to a hamstring injury.

Don't want to jinx anything... but here we go!  Great season for the Twins.

Let's win Twins!
