    Fansided: The Minnesota Twins just broke another home run record

    The Minnesota Twins have hit plenty of home runs this season. For a franchise that used to be known for moving runners over and playing like piranhas, the evolution to the Bomba Squad has resulted in one of the most exciting seasons in franchise history.

    As the Twins already own the MLB record for most home runs in a season with 287 and counting, they're also the first team in MLB history with 11 players to hit 10 or more home runs. This vulgar display of power has continued throughout the season, but on Tuesday night during their game with the Chicago White Sox, the Twins were able to set one more record.

    Fansided: What if the Minnesota Twins faced the New York Yankees in the postseason?

    Disclaimer: This piece is written assuming the Twins don't completely implode and somehow manage to lose the division. If that happens, this piece will self destruct and I promise to make a sacrifice adequate to the Baseball Gods to atone for my transgressions.

    So now that the paperwork is out of the way, here's the good news: If the season had ended Sunday, the Minnesota Twins would be the American League Central Division champions. The bad news? The Minnesota Twins would open the playoffs against the New York Yankees.

    In recent memory, the Twins have not had great luck against the Yankees in the postseason.

    Fansided: Minnesota Twins: 5 reasons why the Twins can win the World Series

    The Minnesota Twins 2019 season has been a roller coaster of emotions. After the Twins got off to a fast start and jumped out to the best record in the American League, they fell back to reality as the Cleveland Indians took their turn to go on a white-hot stretch to even take the lead in the AL Central division.

    As things looked bleak with the Twins not making a move to upgrade their starting rotation at the trade deadline, many jumped off the Bomba Squad's bandwagon. However, another strong stretch of play helped catapult the Twins over the Indians as they fell back to earth and with their magic number back down to eight, it appears the Twins are on their way to their first division title since 2010.

    Fansided: Minnesota Twins: 3 questions for their series against the Chicago White Sox

    The Minnesota Twins came out of Progressive Field on a high note last weekend despite losing the final game of the three-game series with the Cleveland Indians. Even though they had to use their bullpen for their most critical series of the year, the Twins took two out of three games, reducing their magic number to clinch the first American League Central division to nine.

    Looking at that, it might be easy for the Twins to go full bore over the next couple series and wrap up the division in order to get their key cogs some rest ahead of the postseason.
