The Minnesota Twins are known for being a small franchise, low budget team. This year, though, they seem to be larger then life, and it's barely the preseason!
The reason I say they are larger then life is because they have been the talk of teams. Put A-Rod aside, you have the Twins at the top.
Don't believe me? Look at some of the articles on the Bleacher Report alone. A lot are about the Twins winning or losing, best players or worst, etc. It may be hard to believe, but this could be the year the Twins aren't the underdog but the top dog.
