Minnesota Twins: Putting Together Their Best Defensive Lineup

For many years, the Minnesota Twins have prided themselves as being one of the most fundamentally sound teams in the field.

But like many things for the Twins in the past two seasons, that reputation has been escaping them.

In 2011, the Twins ranked 13th in the American League by committing 119 errors. Things didn't get better in 2012, as the Twins finished 11th but committed 107 errors.

Things will need to change if the Twins want to climb out of the basement of the American League Central.

For that to happen, manager Ron Gardenhire needs to find the best defensive combination to help out a pitching staff that has also been slaughtered over the past two seasons.

With a philosophy known as pitch to contact, this lineup can help the Twins win a couple more games and maybe surprise the American League Central in 2012.
