It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...

On June 10, the Twins were 27-34, 10 games behind Chicago and 11.5 games behind Detroit. Today they are 9 games behind Chicago and 11 games behind Detroit. Oh, and their current record is 42-35. They've won 15 of their last 16 games and have gained no more than one game on both the teams in front of them.

Now is a great time to be a Twins fan: Joe Mauer is hitting nearly .400; Johan Santana gives up 2 hits and strikes out 9 in 7 innings; they've figured out how to "run Santana through the Xerox machine and throw him out there twice every time through the rotation" (according to bat-girl); Justin Morneau might actually hit 30 homeruns and thus become the first Twin since 1987 to do so. We might even have the best third-place team in history.
