Coming in at slot #5 is the first change from 2012, the Minnesota Twins. They moved up 2 slots not because they did anything particularly noteworthy, but because the team that was in this spot became a bit more villainous in 2013. There is nothing wrong with occasionally benefiting from another team's poor performance. Sure you want to hit the game winning home run, but if you score on a misplayed fly ball it still counts as a win. As you ponder my sage advice, let's take a look at some Twins team trivia and the first half of the team set.
