Secrets of the AL Central, III

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

  1. Chicago White Sox: 19-14
  2. Kansas City Royals: 19-18
  3. Minnesota Twins: 24-24
  4. Cleveland Indians: 12-15
  5. 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?
