The Minnesota Twins of Minneapolis

I haven't written much about this year's Twins since the season started, but I'm very happy about the Minnesota Twins sweep over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The Angels have been one of the teams that Twins have had a hard time to beat over the past few years, so a sweep feels so much better. Unfortunately, I didn't get to go to a game this weekend and I certainly missed out on Joe Mauer Bronze Statue night.

In addition to Friday's 7-run eighth, Glen Perkins eight innings on Sunday or Delmon Young taking a walk two games in a row, the biggest highlight this weekend was Jason Kubel. Kubel hit for cycle on Friday, including a grand slam in the eighth inning. The Twins organization has waiting for a long time for Kubel to show his superstar stuff. Does this look like we are starting to see it?
