Maybe we should just start calling the "Secrets of the AL Central" posts "Everything You've Been Told About the Twins is Wrong"...
Record in One-Run Games This Season
- Chicago White Sox: 19-14
- Kansas City Royals: 19-18
- Minnesota Twins: 24-24
- Cleveland Indians: 12-15
- Detroit Tigers: 15-21
You mean the Twins aren't 46-2 in one-run games? They have Joe Nathan! They play the game the right way! They are positively terrifying on the basepaths! Isn't small ball supposed to be perfect for those late-game situations?
I bet you didn't expect to see the Royals at 19-18, either, did you?
