Scouting the Twins
The Twins aren't glamorous, but our scout calls them the most balanced team in the American League.
Minnesota Twins don't make mistakes. They play sound, fundamental baseball. They can play any style utilizing small ball, tough defense or good pitching and they can slug with you, too.
The Twins are the most well-balanced team in the American League. They led the American League with a 4.03 ERA, which is a surprise to many baseball experts.
