Small Balls: Friday June 27, 2008

La première étoile: Everyone wearing a Minnesota Twins uniform. Left for dead by pre-season prognosticators, Justin Morneau and the boys are the hottest team in the majors, with nine straight wins and a chance to take over first place in the AL Central by the end of the night. In the age of Moneyball, nobody, not even the Oakland A’s, tops the Twins when it comes to getting the most out of low-paid talent. Johan Santana is probably wishing he stuck around for one more year.
