Don't look now, but the Minnesota Twins are leading the American League Central Division by a half game.
Of course we hope that the lead does not disappear like a desert mirage, but we fear it will. That's the essence of Twins fandom, this year especially -- that mixture of hope and fear.
Is this foreshadowing or teasing? A springboard or the apogee of the season?
Stay (as the saying goes) tuned.
