Central Division

W     L        Pct    GB

Minnesota     72    52      .581    —

Chicago          67     57     .540    5

Detroit            61    63     .492   11

Kansas City   53    71     .427    19

Cleveland       50    74    .403   22

Though the Twins lost to the Angels on Saturday, they beat them on Sunday. Today and Tuesday, they play Texas, which leads the American League West.

We encourage everyone to pull for the Twins; hopefully, by the end of September, they are still atop the division. We don’t desire any tiebreaker game this year.
