First Place!

I watched the Twins beat the White Sox last night on MLB Network, hitting five homers in the process, to take sole possession of first place in the AL Central. And I realized- I really love this team. They have a lineup that, barring injuries and occasional slumps, has literally no weak spots. They finally have a good third baseman whose name isn't Nick Punto. And Scott Baker and Kevin Slowey look to finally have their heads on straight.

I still hate the Ramos-for-Capps trade, the bullpen is still questionable, and I worry that they don't have the rotation strength to win a short playoff series. But I have a better feeling about this Twins team than I have in quite some time.
